This will be another fundraiser for the Humane Society of Westchester with kittens and dogs as well as an indoor therapy pony from Lucky Orphan Horse Rescue – yes, the pony wears a diaper!
“Rescue Me” featured 16 artists from across the region, plus a gal from Idaho. The animal themed show represented both wild and domestic animals, from lions, tigers and bears, to cats, dogs and roosters – created in a variety of mediums. transFORM Gallery was pleased to welcome the new work of B.F.

BA D’Alessandro, Pasquale Miele and Lubomir Tomaszewski contributed to the sculpture portion of the show, while Gina Kingsley added four fused glass pieces.

Jennifer will be providing guests with expert advice on how to select & train their pets.
transFORM Gallery welcomes guests of all ages. If you are a bit weary of animals, don’t stress. The event will also include a crafts table and face painting as well as child and adult friendly treats. Food will be provided by Eastchester Fish Gourmet thanks to transFORM’s Sponsor, Westchester Magazine.

More about the HSW – In an effort to raise awareness for the compassionate care and treatment of animals, transFORM Gallery teamed up with the Humane Society of Westchester, a non-profit organization dedicated to creating living environments that are not just shelters, but a transitional home for stray, lost, abandoned, injured, and abused animals, until they can ultimately be placed in loving permanent homes. Through promotion of successful pet adoption, animal population control, and public education of animal welfare issues, HSW advances the belief that pet ownership is a lifetime commitment.
More about Luck Orphan Horse Rescue – Lucky Orphans opened their barn doors in 2008, they have helped many horses, along with some sheep and goats, find a more promising and meaningful future. It is the goal of LOHR to not only save these wonderful animals, rehabilitating them and rebuilding their trust in people, but also to use their stories of struggle, overcoming adversity, building trust, leadership, and teamwork to create an understanding and inspiration in children, young adults, and the community. Today, Lucky Orphans Horse Rescue is dedicated to not only providing a forever home for these magnificent creatures, but also to educating the community and focusing on strengthening the relationship between children and animals to build a more compassionate future.
