As reported here yesterday,Darwin Animal Doctors (DAD) came to the aid of the numerous dogsencamped outdoors at New York City’s Zuccotti Park, site of the Occupy Wall Street protest.
The intrepid OWS protesters â€” on two and four legs â€” have been standing their ground despite the surprisingly early arrival of snow in New York City.
DAD volunteers held up signs pointing dog and cat owners to “Free Checkups.” On hand and paw was Dr.Jodi Kuntz(pictured above) of New York City’s prestigious Animal Medical Center, who donated her time to examine the protesters’ pets.
The dogs were clearly gratefulfor the attention,generously bestowing kisses on the volunteers, including fearless DAD leader Tod Emko (pictured below,receiving passionate K9 kisses).
DAD will return to Zuccotti Park again soon; we’ll keep you posted on the date(s). In the meantime, make a donation to help them help the animals of Occupy Wall Street. Here’s an amendedwish list of needed items â€” any and all donations gratefully accepted:
