Tops for Tails Event with Animal Medical Center NYC

The Thursday before last, the Animal Medical Center’s Junior Committee hosted a Top Tails Cocktails at Le Cirque. Among the Junior Committee hosting were Travis Acquavella, Kristin Fisher Allen, Cass Adelman, Christina Floyd Di Donna, Tara Germino, Sarah Jane Gibbons, Alexandra Goelet, Amelia C. Irving, Lily Maddock, Sara Mercer, Kay Nordeman, Kimberly Ovitz, Emilia Fanjul Pfeifler, Marie Rentschler and Sommer Scafidi.

They raised over $20,000 to support The AMC’s Frank V.D. Lloyd Fund for Guide Dogs. In the past three years, Top Tails Cocktails has raised nearly $100,000 to support The AMC’s mission of education, service and compassionate care.

Two beautiful “guide dogs in-training” from Guiding Eyes stole the hearts of the 90 guests. Guide dogs are extraordinary animals that enable visually-impaired individuals to become independent members of society. These animals require special and expert veterinary care so that owner and dog can share in the longest, most productive relationship possible. However, many people who are visually-impaired are unable to provide this essential care due to limited resources. Because of this, the AMC’s Junior Committee have chosen the care of these guide dogs as the focus of their philanthropy for The AMC.

In 1960, the Frank V.D. Lloyd Fund for Guide Dog was established to provide FREE veterinary care to guide dogs. “By protecting and preserving a working dog’s health, we aim to enhance our visually-impaired clients’ quality of life by extending this important bond to the fullest,” said Katherine Coyne, CEO of the Animal Medical Center. The Thursday before last, the Animal Medical Center’s Junior Committee hosted a Top Tails Cocktails at Le Cirque. Among the Junior Committee hosting were Travis Acquavella, Kristin Fisher Allen, Cass Adelman, Christina Floyd Di Donna, Tara Germino, Sarah Jane Gibbons, Alexandra Goelet, Amelia C.
