At Sabbath Rescue, a Savior of Strays Never Has a Day of Rest
I'll be doing a story for the paper soon (I'll be in New York all this week and will blog on the dog-friendliest place in America from there) about this organization and its founder, Robbie Coy. He named his rescue group after his late and much lamented lab/border collie, Sabbath (named not for the day of rest but for the rock group Black Sabbath, which he saw in concert the day before finding his dog).
"He was pulled from under a trailer when I was 21, which was 23 years ago. He lived a long and healthy life.''
In his memory and honor, Coy, who shelters strays and animal-shelter rescues in a warehouse adjacent to his t-shirt business (sorry, no address; too many dogs get dumped there as it is) decided to save as many at-risk dogs as possible. He says he places 20-30 per month.
And he says he spends up to $40,000 a year caring for the dogs until they can be placed. He's always looking for donations to support his mission.
