Founded in 2009, Louie’s Legacy is a non-profit 501(c)(3), grass roots, all-breed animal rescue organization dedicated to caring for and finding adoptive homes for the dogs and cats it saves from high-kill shelters across the country. From it’s conception, the rescue, which operates in Cincinnati, OH and Staten Island, NY, will save over 9,000 animals by the end of 2017 thanks to its many volunteers, transporters, fosters, adopters, sponsors and contributors.

The mission of the Silver Lake Park Conservancy is to provide support for the beautification of the park, community use, and foster the growth of an art presence.
The Silver Lake Park Conservancy was founded in October of 2015 by Grymes Hill resident Dominick R. DeRubbio. After noticing an excess amount of trash near the lake, Dominick decided to create a partnership with the New York City Parks Department and community residents. Our 2015/2016 goals include bench painting, lamp post painting and a major cleanup event of the lake in the Spring of 2016. We look forward to teaming up with the community over the next few months.  Learn more at
