The mission of A Very Special Place is to empower people with intellectual and developmental disabilities to lead fuller lives through comprehensive programs and services offering guidance, support, and opportunities for achieving independence, self-fulfillment and full community inclusion. A Very Special Place, Inc. was established in 1974 as a not-for-profit organization that provides programs and services to people with intellectual and developmental disabilities.

Louie’s Legacy Animal Rescue, Inc., non-profit and no kill, located in Staten Island, NY and Cincinnati, OH, aims to alleviate the suffering of abandoned shelter animals by rescuing, rehabilitating and re-homing them within our community. We are proudly foster based, meaning our animals live in homes, not shelters. This differentiates us and allows us to more thoroughly get to know our animals, ensuring they are matched with suitable, screened adoptive homes which meet our high standards. As part of our commitment to the health and well-being of all of our animals and to reduce pet overpopulation in our community, every pet is spayed or neutered prior to adoption. We are committed to ensuring the safety of our animals for their entire lifetimes so that they will never suffer abuse, neglect or abandonment again.
– Granted $20,000 to their Staten Island operations and for rescued animals medical care.
