So happy and proud that TheDodo.com allowed me to interview one of the nicest people, Beth Stern. It’s always a pleasure working with Beth. She is one of the sweetest compassionate and most beautiful women that I’ve encountered.
The Dodo is an awesome new animal awareness site! PLEASE check it out. I hope to write more for them in the future.
Last summer Beth and Howard Stern were having lunch with friends Billy Joel and his girlfriend, Alexis Roderick, when Joel unveiled his birthday plans: A concert at Madison Square Garden, where all the profits from the already sold-out show would go to Bianca’s Furry Friends, a foundation Beth Stern established in honor of her beloved bulldog Bianca who had passed away.

The expansion, named after the foundation, involves adding a second floor to the already existing shelter, which will make more room for not only kittens and cats, but dogs and puppies as well, expanding this animal kingdom to 14,000 square feet. It will include a 24-hour care nursery, outdoor habitats for the animals to freely explore, cage-free environments for the cats, examination rooms, a feline behavioral department and grooming stations. The expansion also will leave more room available for rescues from puppy mills on the first level of the facility.
