a great success!

 7th Annual Hostages for Homeless Pets

a great success!

How You Helped:

On May 2, 2019, eight animal lovers were "kidnapped" by the volunteers of The Crossings Animal Society and held for "ransom" at Trattoria Rosa Bianca in Yardley.  While in "captivity", they enjoyed a sumptuous buffet breakfast, and listened to a presentation on Boris & Natasha' Fund and animal welfare in our state and country.  (Video of the presentation is available on our Facebook page.)


After their "release", we carefully counted the "ransom" monies they had raised.  Here's the outcome:


Together with the generosity of our sponsors, you helped us raise nearly $9,400!


This event was a true collaboration of the animal lovers in the community.  Our "hostages", sponsors, and every one of you who donated for someone's "ransom" made this event a success.


Special thanks to the planning committee, whose hard work made the event as fun, enjoyable, and informative as it was:

  • Libby Honan

  • Cheryl Minney

  • Bethann Mueller

  • Yvonne Neiman

  • Kevin Washburn

Truth be told, we all had such a good time and felt so positive about the outcome of "Hostages for Homeless Pets", we decided to continue fundraising for Boris & Natasha's Fund throughout this calendar year.  We set our 2019 goal at $50,000!

What is Boris & Natasha's Fund?

Boris & Natasha's Fund assists with the cost of life-sustaining veterinary care for cats and dogs.  In collaboration with our participating veterinary practices, the fund is used for homeless pets, and for pets living in families with limited finances.

In addition to assisting with non-routine veterinary care, this year Boris & Natasha's Fund is available for palliative care and care for pets with cardiac disease. Palliative, or hospice care, ensures that pets who are at the end of their lives are made comfortable, in order to maintain their quality of life for as long as it is feasible.  Treatment for heart disease includes helping with the cost for medications, veterinarian visits and procedures such as EKG.
