PawPrints Animal Health Care Centre PC at 115-04 Rockaway Beach Blvd, owned by Dr. Karina Salvo had only been open for 2 weeks open when Hurricane Sandy hit the Rockaway Peninsula. Dr. Salvo had been doing house-calls within the Breezy Point, Rockaway, Howard Beach and Marine Park areas for two years. It has taken her almost two years and an investment of everything she had into building a new and much needed Animal Health Care facility where every patient is treated as an individual. We all know and appreciate the dedication and love Dr. Salvo and her staff has for the pets of the Rockaways. The pets of the area now had a place to go to if they were sick and was the only local facility that would be able to provide overnight care with an attending veterinarian and the ability to provide emergency care as needed. However, on that fateful night Sandy struck. In a matter of hours, PawPrints was flooded with 4 1/2 feet of murky sea and sewage water. All the equipment, the cabinets, the supplies and inventory was lost. Although PawPrints suffered a total loss on the inside the exterior remained intact. Unfortunately businesses adjacent to PawPrints were reduced to smoky rubble by the outrageously devastating and overwhelming fire. Ironically the fire stopped short of where PawPrints still stands today. Many people are amazed and say, “Something or someone was watching over PawPrints”. Amazingly PawPrints still stands among the surrounding debris.....but now we need all the help we can get to where it was before this disaster so that the PawPrints team, and Dr. Salvo can continue to help the animals of the Rockaways.
PLEASE HELP!
