You may recall an earlier post about knitting sweaters for penguins affected by oil spills. Well here’s another reason to pull out those knitting needles! Leggings for Life is an organization committed to connecting knitting and crochet enthusiasts with animals living with deformed or amputated limbs. Watch the video above for more info, and be sure to check out their Facebook page!
You are cordially invited to join our new Facebook page, Queens Borough Pit Stop, a virtual space for local pit bull lovers, advocates and the pit-curious to ask questions and share stories, photos, event listings and notices on adoptable pit bulls. Won’t you make Sadie happy and “like” us today?
I’m sure some of our Astorian clients will recognize this dog run over by Shore Towers at the edge of the park. Formally known as “Bugsy’s Dog Run” there is a local movement mobilizing to make it a cleaner, happier place for local dog owners and walkers. (And of course, the dogs!)
For those of you interested in helping out please visit the Astoria Dog Owners’ Group on Facebook, where you can see a 3-D model of the redesign proposed by organizer Valentin Mosnegutu, and find out about upcoming meetings.
