How do you celebrate your birthday? If you’re anything like legendary singer/songwriter Billy Joel, then you spent it performing for thousands of people.
However, Mr. Joel took it a step further, donating the proceeds from his birthday concert to the Bianca’s Furry Friends campaign, a proposed state-of-the-art Feline Adoption Center.
The campaign, created by North Shore Animal League America, will also save the lives of dogs and puppies, as it will open more room in their existing facility.
According to the North Shore Animal League America website, “Every year, North Shore Animal League America rescues, nurtures and finds loving homes for nearly 20,000 homeless, ailing and neglected animals.”
However, their facilities are always operating at full capacity. As much as they would like to take in every animal that needs help, spacing limitations are a major problem.
The 14,000 square foot facility will allow the organization to take in more animals and help those in need. To learn more about the campaign or to donate, visit their website. You can also follow the North Shore Animal League America on their Facebook page.
And high paws to Billy Joel for helping these animals!
