Sean Casey Animal Rescue took in over 2,000 animals from the NYC Shelter System in 2010, the most of any private rescue in New York.  Please consider a donation to Sean Casey Animal Rescue to help continue giving these animals a safe haven and a second chance at life.

Give New Life to Your Old Shoes

Can you imagine your child being denied an education because he or she doesn’t have shoes?  Yet in many impoverished countries, footwear is a requirement to attend classes.  Lack of shoes also contributes to the spread of disease.




Soles 4 Souls, a Nashville-based charity, collects new and gently used shoes and distributes them to people in need.  To date, the charity has given away nearly 14 million pairs of shoes to people in more than 125 countries.  Now, you can help.
