Beth Stern helps raise $1 million+ for North Shore Animal League new cat center

It is no secret that Beth Ostrovsky (aka Mrs. Howard Stern) loves animals. She and Howard have not only adopted several animals over time, they routinely foster kittens and adult cats, some from various town shelters throughout Long Island, in addition to the North Shore Animal League in Pt. Washington, NY, where she works tirelessly as a spokeswoman for animal adoptions. In fact, they fostered 50 felines in their homes in Manhattan and Southampton last summer alone. They currently have 5, Apple, Walter, Leon Bear, Charlie Boy and Bella (who is blind).

Included among her pet project (such as organizing the Kitten Bowl) during this year’s Super Bowl, Beth has been working with North Shore to raise $7 million so they can build a second floor to the facility’s adoption center.

“It is so exciting,” exclaimed The League’s senior vice president of operations Joanne Yohannan. “It is going to be 14,000 sq feet of cage-free living, as well as new examination rooms, a surgical suite, grooming spaces, and a nursery all for cats only.”

So far, Beth Stern has helped raise $1 million for the cat center, including hosting a celebrity rich fund-raiser at the Waldorf Astoria in Manhattan last November. Attendees included co-host Matt Lauer, Dick Chicks, Natalie Maines, John Stamos, Zac Braff, Robin Givens and George Takei, among others.

The project, which is expected to take three years to complete, will also allow room for 100 more rescue animals. North Shore currently cares for 125 felines and more than 200 dogs.

The North Shore Animal League is also in the midst of breaking ground for the Elizabeth Ann Freed Special Recovery Center, a separate 2,000 sq. foot space designated to house 5 small isolation wards in a “state-of-the-art facility for animals with upper respiratory infections such as kennel cough or other contagious diseases.” Final cost for this center is expected to run about $750,000. $350,000 has already been donated by the Manhattan-based Freed Foundation, which supports animal welfare and other causes.
