A Local Business with a Heart (Aired on June 17 and 18, 2017)

Charles G. Vetter, Jr. managing broker at the Lagrangeville Office of real-estate
agency Houlihan Lawrence, tells RadioRotary about some of the many ways that his agency works with the local community on a number of humanitarian projects.  Mr. Vetter is very much involved personally and through the agency with the Dutchess SPCA, making sure that dogs and cats are adopted, The agency’s concern for animal welfare extends to large creatures as well, supporting the Lucky Orphans Horse Rescue, including locating the farm where the rescue service is now located. Other charities supported by the Houlihan Lawrence staff include the Lymphoma and Leukemia Society through its “Light the Night” fundraiser and a scholarship program for baton twirlers. As part of the community involvement, the agency often partners with LaGrange Sunrise Rotary or with the Rotary Club of Pleasant Valley.

The Mutt Strutt (Aired on May 13th 2017 and May 14th 2017)

The Mutt Strut (Aired on May 13 and 214, 2017)
RadioRotary interviews Kingston-Sunrise Rotary President Alicia Marcinkowski about the club’s fundraiser known as “The Mutt Strut.” This is a chance for owners of all breeds (or nonbreeds) of dogs to bring their pets to the Kingston Point Dog Park, where prizes are awarded in many categories: e.g. best-behaved dog, best-looking, look-alikes, and more. The event is partnered with SUNY Ulster’s Veterinary-Technical (“Vet-Tech”) club and the nearby Smorgasburg is available for the humans who want to eat during the event.
There are numerous booths from vendors of pet-related materials. The event includes demonstrations of dog-related materials and speakers on dog-related topics. It concludes with the dog parade. Money raised at the event, which is free to participants but not to vendors, will help support two international projects (books for Kenya and toys for Ethiopia and Bosnia) as well as many local
organizations.

The Two by Two Zoo (Aired on November 19 and 20, 2016)

The Two by Two Zoo (Aired on November 19 and 20, 2016)

Heather Iannucci and her family recognized in 1993 that their collection of animals was of interest to children and many adults as well, so they formed the Two by Two Zoo to be a traveling petting experience.  Soon they began to acquire other animals, often pets that their owners could no longer care for, but also animals rescued by agencies such as the United State Department of Agriculture (USDA), which also registers the traveling zoo. Today the zoo is run by Heather and her daughter Jennifer (Mr. Iannucci works at a regular job) and concentrates on providing petting experiences as schools, libraries, and similar institutions in the Hudson Valley. For the RadioRotary interview, Mrs. Iannucci was accompanied by Sydney, a young kangaroo who said little during the program.

Dutchess County SPCA (Aired on September 26 & 27, 2015)

Christina Novak

Christina Novak

Christina Novak, Communications and Development Coordinator of the Dutchess Country SPCA, visits the RadioRotary studio to describe the work of her organization, which is much more diverse than most persons realize. While the letters SPCA stand for Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to animals, most people think of the Dutchess County SPCA largely in terms of pet adoptions (and they do handle this for all kinds of pets, including birds, rabbits, rats, and Guinea pigs, as well as dogs and cats), but there are many other services. A low-cost clinic, open to the public, provides routine veterinarian care for all sorts of pets. There is outreach to schools, humane law enforcement, a pet cemetery and crematorium, and a lost and found service. There is even a Pet Pantry, a food bank for pet food. Learn about this and more, as well as how to become one of the more than 200 volunteers that make the Dutchess SPCA work.
