Louie’s Legacy Animal Rescue Announces its 2018 Annual Fundraising Calendar Paws of Gotham Photographed by Candy Kennedy

Press Release


“Paws of Gotham” is Louie’s Legacy’s fourth annual calendar aimed at raising funds to rehabilitate and re-home animals from high-kill shelters across the United States. “Paws of Gotham” was shot by famed South African photographer Candy Kennedy. The images she captured focus on the diversity of both people and pets, and showcase the noise and colorful energy of New York City. Each month features a stunning photo of a real rescue pet, most from Louie’s Legacy, with a celebrity, influencer or model, and is shot in front of an iconic New York scene.
Candy Kennedy, along with celebrities, influencers, activists and models such as Mario Cantone, Maggie Geha, KhrystyAna, Brett David and Chef Rōze Traore, just to name a few, have all donated their time and efforts in hopes to raise funds for Louie’s Legacy’s important cause.

“This project has given me the opportunity to combine my love for animal charities and New York,” say Kennedy. “Not only was I able to work with some amazing and creative people on this calendar, but they all share the same love for animals, which makes this project very rewarding and special. I am very proud of how hard everyone worked to find the perfect locations, people to shoot, and most importantly, to fit the right pet with the right person. There is nothing better than the feeling of helping an animal or person in need.”

About Louie’s Legacy Animal Rescue
Louie’s Legacy Animal Rescue, Inc., is a non-profit, grassroots all-breed animal rescue, which saves, rehabilitates and re-homes animals from high-kill shelters across the United States. Louie’s Legacy operates in Cincinnati, OH and Staten Island, NY. Since 2009, Louie’s Legacy has saved over 10,000 animals. Recently, during the hurricane season of 2017, LLAR rescued more than 200 animals who were in shelters in Texas and Florida prior to Hurricane Harvey and Irma, taking on over $10,000 in additional non-routine medical expenses in addition to the cost of the rescue mission.

Louie’s Legacy Animal Rescue is proudly foster based, meaning their animals live in homes, not shelters. This differentiates them and allows them to more thoroughly get to know the animals, ensuring they are matched with suitable, screened adoptive homes, which meet their high standards. As part of their commitment to the health and wellbeing of all of the animals and to reduce pet overpopulation within the community, every pet is spayed or neutered prior to adoption. They are committed to ensuring the safety of their animals for their entire lifetimes so that they will never suffer abuse, neglect or abandonment again.

ASPCA Transports Shelter Animals Displaced by Hurricane Harvey from Houston SPCA to ASPCA Adoption Center

Press Release

ASPCA’s 40-foot animal transport vehicle also delivering animals to Connecticut

New York, N.Y.—In support of the Houston SPCA, the ASPCA® (American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals®) is assisting in the transport and relocation of 41 shelter animals from Houston to the ASPCA’s Adoption Center in New York City, followed by a second stop at the Connecticut Humane Society in Newington, Conn. These shelter dogs were initially evacuated from Corpus Christi, Texas before Hurricane Harvey devastated the area and were awaiting transport to shelters and rescue groups to be made available for adoption.

“Animal welfare groups in communities throughout Texas and Louisiana devastated by Hurricane Harvey have been working tirelessly to secure transports for homeless animals and get them out of harm’s way,” said Matt Bershadker, president and CEO of the ASPCA. “The ASPCA is pleased to be able to offer relief by transporting homeless dogs from the disaster zones to communities where they can find safe and loving homes.”

“These dogs have experienced a long journey from Houston to the Big Apple,” said Jorge Ortega, senior director of the ASPCA Adoption Center. “We want to make sure we give these dogs some time to settle in, but I’m confident that they will quickly find homes once they’re ready to be adopted.”

The ASPCA’s search-and-rescue, sheltering and relocation teams are currently spread throughout Texas and Louisiana and actively engaging with local agencies to deploy much-needed professional responders to help animal victims of this unprecedented and life-threatening flooding.

The ASPCA Field Investigations and Response team deploys nationwide to assist in relocation, search-and-rescue, sheltering and placement of animals during disaster situations including wildfires, tornadoes and floods. In addition, they work closely with local agencies across the country to help enhance their animal response capabilities through grants and training opportunities. In 2016, the ASPCA rescued nearly 1,600 animals from disaster situations and responded to eight disasters – including Hurricane Matthew and the wildfire in Lake County, California.

WHAT: Arrival of 20 displaced Harvey shelter dogs from Houston, Texas
(the remaining 21 dogs will head to Connecticut following the NYC stop)

(Estimated arrival time is Sunday evening, please call the ASPCA media contacts above)

MORE: Media interested in covering the arrival of the Harvey shelter dogs and access to the ASPCA Adoption Center are encouraged to contact Julie Hong at 917-692-5128, or Emily Schneider at 646-784-5111.

About the ASPCA®

More than two million supporters strong, the ASPCA is committed to its mission of providing effective means for the prevention of cruelty to animals throughout the United States.

Hurricane Harvey – Urgent Need For Fosters


In the wake of Hurricane Harvey, Louie’s Legacy will be making a trip to assist in evacuating shelter cats and dogs (not owned animals) for medical care and eventual adoption. We are taking part in our own mission from Cincinnati, OH and will be part of a coalition of groups from the Northeast to assist as many animals as possible. In order to evaluate our potential for assistance, we need to know how many foster homes, new and seasoned, we can depend on to assist a needy hurricane shelter animal.

Animal Activist and parent to 13 adopted pets.

Interview by Marc Birnbach, Photography by Russ Levi

Dogs have human-like sense of morality, research shows

World News

Humans and dogs have lived side-by-side for centuries, and new research has given us even more insight into the feelings of man’s best friend. Researchers at Kyoto University’s department of psychology in Japan have worked out that dogs have an almost human-like sense of morality. During a series of experiments, they found that our canine chums were less likely to interact with anyone they perceive as acting rudely or unfairly.
