State will pitch in $500k for Saugerties Animal Shelter

After being awarded a long-awaited state grant of $500,000 toward the cost of a brand-new shelter, daughter of shelter founder Marie Post and founder of the new Saugerties Animal Welfare Fund Adele Zinderman insists that all donated monies toward the total $1.8 million structure’s cost will go toward their intended purpose, despite a severe dip in donations that cover the living and surgical expenses of animals housed at the facility.

Benefit planned for Saugerties teen recovering from cancer

Sunday, Feb. 9: Until November 2018, Taylor Block, now 16, was a typical teen who loved softball, skiing and the Jonas Brothers. But then she was diagnosed with osteosarcoma, a devastating bone cancer. After enduring over 15 surgical procedures to correct damage that weakened one of her legs, she is hopeful that she will be able to attend prom in May. She came back home to Saugerties three weeks ago after a 12-week stay at Sloan-Kettering in the intensive care unit.
