Here Comes Psychic Fair Season!

June 2, 2023

In 2022 I was introduced to the world of psychic fairs –2 of them, to be exact. Both fairs were fundraisers for–and hosted by–Saugerties Animal Shelter. A new adventure!

Out of the Darkness

January 28, 2018

Gandalf I adopted Gandalf in 2011 from the Ulster County SPCA. He was rescued along with 32 other cats by the shelter’s Humane Law officers and shelter staff from an abandoned house in Plattekill, southern Ulster County, with interior walls that were slick with mold and every surface clotted with filth. Those awful living conditions…
