Testimonials from Pet owners

Hi, my name is Shirley Grossman. I know about Muffins from a family member of mine, Elyse. She cannot do enough to help Muffins and has gotten myself and everyone she knows to help. Helping Muffins is a very important thing to do. Their spay/neuter program is SO important, plus their site for adoptions is also so important. Tons of animals have been adopted through Muffins services over the years. Most importantly though is the money that is used for animal rescues, I know personally of some of the rescues and Muffins is the BEST!!! Everyone should send donations. Shirley Grossman, Brooklyn, New York


Dear Muffins,

Just want to let everyone out there know about how wonderful Muffins is. I have written before but you guys have helped me again and I just want to say thanks. Your spay/neuter program is the greatest thing. Great for us people that don't have a lot of money and I believe it is great for the vets because when we go to them with our new animals for the spay or neuter we do not have a vet yet and if we are happy we stay with the vet, win, win situation. Keep up the good work. Elyse Karnes from Brooklyn


Hi,

I heard about Muffin's from my niece in Brooklyn. I got a new puppy, needed to have him neutered and I needed a vet. I took my puppy to Dr. Ranher, one of your participating veterinarians in Long Island. I am just delighted with LI Animal Hospital. I am staying with this vet. He did all the follow up medical on my puppy. Wouldn't have known of him without you. Thank you so much for the neuter certificate and for putting me onto a great vet. From what I hear all vets in your program are wonderful. Joan Hoffer, Levittown, New York


Hello,

It was very easy and helpful procedure. Thanks, Gulek Kandirali, Bay Ridge - Brooklyn, NY

Thanks so much for sending Janice to help get the linens to the shelter. She is a Godsend. You are wonderful. Regards, Leigh Stratton, NYC


This is a great system for those who cannot afford to pay so much money to neuter or spay a cat. Thank you! Nora, NYC


My husband and I just wanted to thank you for the certificate you sent to the 5th Ave. Cat Clinic to get our little stray spayed--we wanted to do right by her, and you guys helped us out tremendously. Many, many thanks! Best, Wylie O'Sullivan


Thank you so much, animal hospital will do the neutering at around 10:00 AM on 03/0705 today. Thanks again for being there. I usually pick up the certificates in Staten Island but was unable to do so. Your service of faxing is a Godsend. Thanks again. A. Leder


Thank you so much Jude. I will go on the website and get the listing of vet's for my Tigger. I do feel a lot better knowing I have an organization like to that will help me in taking care of my lovely cat. Thank you again, LYNEE MILLER


I contributed to Macy's Miracle during the holidays and have been thinking about that little kitty a lot lately. Could you tell me what's happened since then? Thank you so much. Anna Large


Update about Macy

Thank you so much for that...I haven't cried that that in years. What an amazing story. God bless everyone involved in taking care of her and people like Dee and Miriam make this world a better place to be. Pass on a kiss to little Macy from me...Anna Large alarge@nyc.rr.com

Thanks for all your help - what a great company you have! - Tom Goodkind, NYC


My name is Elyse and I am an animal lover and feed and water many cats each night. Every once in awhile I have to do some rescue work. I just want it known that since Jude and Norm of Muffins came into my life I have been able to do a lot more. They are wonderful, kind, caring people and have made it possible for me to rescue cats that I could not have done without them. Their spay/neuter program is just a lifesaver and the trap rental and adoption on the internet service are beyond helpful. They also have referral services, so whatever kind of help you need they point you in the right direction. Keep up the good work guys! Brooklyn, NY


Hello Muffin's,

Your website is brilliant! Easy to use, even with a kitten helping me type. - Miss Mitchell, Baldwin, NY


Hey Jude,

Thank you for providing this wonderful service. How can I have my certificates faxed directly to my vet's office? Thanks for getting back to me. The two cats are Chester and Oliver. The appointment is at 9am. Also, I did manage to find the Comments Field at the end, so this information may be redundant at this point. Thanks again for this great service. I can't tell you how much we appreciate the help. Chester and Oliver give you snuggin's of thanks, too! Cheers, Sincerely, Nicholas Warren-Gray, Brooklyn NY


Hello,

Muffin.org is great! - Luisa Competiello, Brooklyn, NY


Hi,

I can't begin to Thank you enough for all you do to make things easy for people with pets. I had my cat (which I adopted from an elderly couple in my building) de-clawed & spayed plus had shots given. Thanks to Muffin's it was a very reasonable price and a very pleasant experience. This was was so caring, sweet and thoughtful. It made me feel good to know there are vets out there that are more about the pets than the money. I hope this check will help you to keep up the good work. Very Truly yours, Ann Mede Archer - Brooklyn, NY


**Thanks for making this available. You do a great service to help control unwanted puppies and kittens ending up in horrible situations. - Carole Strumph, Brooklyn, NY


**Thank you so much. I don't think I would have been able to afford to Spay her, if Muffin's weren't around. - Catherine Ciampa


**DonnaMEM.jpg (3247 bytes)My donation is in Memory of Donna Olsen who would have been 52 today, Aug. 2, 2004. I miss her every day but I know she is dancing and laughing in a far better place. - Eileen Olsen, Maryland

Hello,

Thank you so much for your prompt certificate so that I could neuter the male cat found in a warehouse. He does have an owner who let him sun himself on a store roof. He jumped into the warehouse and got stuck there. I have instructed his very young owner (working girl) to please keep inside and he's needs to be neutered. Thanks to you and I. Love, Alice - Brooklyn, NY


Dear Jude and Norm,

Hello,

I rescued this cat two weeks ago on Ovington Avenue, between 4th and 5th Avenues. I posted signs but no one has claimed her. Thank you for providing this service, because it helps with the expense of having a pet.- Nicole Ascher, Brooklyn, NY


**For Muffin's:

Thank you also for your gracious help in making it (spay) affordable for pet lovers like me to afford these types of services, which helps 100% to be able to rescue and keep stray animals. - Vidya Deconarine, Queens, NY


**HI Jude:

Here's the story of how we adopted Abbey through Muffin's

"We have had pets all our lives and have always had a multiple cat household. When a few had passed away on us, we decided it was time for a new kitten. The new kitten, whose name is Loki, wanted to play with the older cats, but they could not be bothered. We then figured we needed a kitten for our kitten. Immediately, Muffins (and Jude came to mind). She then found a 3 month old kitten for us who we named Abbey. Both kittens are now playing & are very happy." - Janice


**Just wanted to drop a line to let you know that your organization has helped me as well as all the pet owners I know. After I found out about Muffins Pet Connection, I have spread the word to every single person I know- pet owner or not. Your appreciated, and I wish there were more animal lovers such as yourself to help all animals...From the bottom of my (and my animals) hearts...Thanks -- Patty Rama - Queens, New York


**Dear Jude :

Just a line to let you know that we were very fortunate to find a sweet little girl so quickly. We know that it was a heart breaking experience for the family to give her up and will keep in touch and make arrangements for them to see their little girl. We will get the necessary information from "the Muffin site" to have her spayed as soon as she finishes her heat. This was Kismet. Michele D'Agosto


**Thank you for your quick response. This helps us and helps the dogs. Take care, Joan


**Wow, thanks for your quick answer.. It's a great service - I wish it were better publicized (in fact I'm going to put up a notice in our local pet store). I think some people don't neuter because they think they can't afford to (and that leads to more abandonment, probably). You guys are the greatest - thanks for what you do. Thanks again, Sara


**Thanks, Jude. And thank you especially for the wicked fast response! Kim


Dear Jude,

Many, many thanks to you for your 'Muffin's PC' organization. And it's wonderful idea to have Muffin's picture on the flyer...looking perky, feisty and absolutely adorable! Now, a personal Thanks for lowering the cost a bit more for my situation. Love, Barbara


Dear Muffin's,

Enclosed is a check in the amount of $100.00 as a contribution to your organization. I would like to thank you for helping me with the fee for the surgery for my male cat 'Evan', I adopted. He is adjusting and doing well. Thanks again. Sincerely, Carol Swaby


**I know that Muffin's does a lot for the little guys - especially here in Bay Ridge. The folks at Narrows Animal Hospital speak highly of you. - Tara Lee Cernacek http://www.happypets.org/


**What a great service - Thanx. Tawnee Walling


**Jude,

Thanks so much--peace of mind to hear from you, esp. as I've never done this before and I'm a new, first time cat owner. Thank you again for your fast reply! All the best, Julia


**Hello Jude,

Dr. Romero at Merrick Blvd Animal Hospital in Queens, told me to tell Jude to fax over the neuter cert. for my cat. I would like to like to Thank You and your organization for all the help that you have given me. I look forward to using your services in the future. Thank you, Veldina L. Cook, Queens, NY


**Dear Jude,

My family and I would like to thank you very much for putting us in touch with Marion and Vanilla Ice Cream. Marion delivered him to us on Saturday evening and we fell in love with him. I think he feels right at home with us as he only hid for the first hour or so, and spent the rest of the night exploring our home and getting acquainted. He is a very gentle, and lovable kitten, and our son Henry is thrilled with him. He renamed him "Snowball". It was truly a pleasure speaking with you. I felt such sadness and had such a heavy heart over the sudden unexpected loss of our beloved Baby. After speaking with you, I felt much better and saw her passing in a different light. While we will never forget her, we will find new found joy in our new family member : ). Once again, our heartfelt thanks. Diane, Hank & Henry Schecker


Dear Jude and Norm at Muffin's,

Enclosed, you should find some stamps. The website noted that Muffin's needed stamps for the large amounts of you do daily. I was able to use my Muffin's cert. at East Side Animal Hospital to have my new kitty 'Jacques-Imo' neutered. I thanked them for using Muffin's. Jacques-Imo' was found under a care in Jersey City. He was rescued by a friend and asked if we would take him. He is affectionate and loves to play with water. I think muffin's is a wonderful organization. I will continue to help whenever I can. Sincerely, Julie


**DEAR JUDE AT MUFFIN'S,

I JUST WANTED TO SAY THANK YOU. A COUPLE OF MONTHS AGO I FOUND A CALICO CAT (CALLIE IS HER NAME) AND TWO KITTENS. I FOUND HOMES FOR THE KITTENS AND CALLED MUFFINS FOR A DISCOUNT CERTIFICATE TO HAVE CALLIE SPAYED. I COULD NOT KEEP HER AS I HAVE 4 CATS OF MY OWN. SO I HAD MY SON POST HER PICTURE ON YOUR WEB SITE, WHICH TO MY SURPRISE WAS FREE FOR TWO WEEKS. I RECEIVED A CALL FROM A LADY NAMED SYLVIA. HER FEMALE CAT DIED AND HER MALE CAT WAS LONLEY. SHE SAW CALLIE'S PICTURE ON MUFFINS WEBSITE AND CALLED ME TO ARRANGE A MEETING. SHE AND HER HUSBAND CAME TO MEET HER. OF COURSE CALLIE WAS A LITTLE FRIGHTENED BUT I ASSURED THEM THAT SHE WOULD MAKE A WONDERFUL PET. THEY TOOK HER HOME AND THANKS TO MUFFINS PUT A HAPPY ENDING TO CALLIES' STORY. THEY NOW SEND ME PICTURES AND E-MAILS ABOUT CALLIE AND THEY ARE VERY HAPPY. I COULD NOT HAVE ASKED FOR NICER PEOPLE TO CARE FOR HER. THANKS AGAIN MUFFINS, YOU'RE THE BEST. CAMILLE BERRIO 923


**You are doing a WONDERFUL service! Keep of the good work and remember who you are doing it for -- helpless, defenseless animals who are hungry, homeless and sick. We found two strays and can't keep them unless they are both spayed/neutered. As an animal lover, I hate seeing these poor souls left on the streets to breed over and over. I can't afford the high fees it takes to spay/neuter all that need to be done. Until now. You are an angel. - Elisa


The students of PS 175Q & PS 253 participated in the Roundtable by saving Pennies. The students choose a non profit organization to donate the pennies. Muffin's was honored to have been chosen to receive the very generous contributions. Thank you for Caring and Sharing. ~Jude


Dear Norm & Jude,

Enclosed is a donation of $10.00. Thanx for giving us a wonderful cat. Love, Susan & Joel Meisner, B'klyn NY


Hello,

I just wanted to Thank You for the great & valuable services Muffin's does. It's heartbreaking that so many loving animals are euthanized in NYC. I'm so glad that we saved a Life.. and Taco is too. He's a great 10 yr. old Chihuahua who seems to love 'country life' and enjoys walks. He & Teva get along fine. He sleeps w/us every nite, is totally housebroken and is getting used to the car rides. He is so obedient and has a great temperament. I believe he loves it here. He plays quite a lot and cries when we leave for a minute. I'm so glad that he is here w/us. It's been the best 2 weeks. When we get our film developed we will send some pics. Please feel free to pass this information onto MaryAnn, the previous owner. Thanx again. Love, Jen, Alex, Teva & Taco, PA


Dear Jude,

Thanks so much for sending the updated Muffin's Certificate so quickly. "Pashie" is being spayed tomorrow. I appreciate all that Muffin's is doing for our pets. Sometime in the future, I hope, when I have a little more money, I will send Muffin's a contribution. I look forward to dealing with you in the future, (ChiChi and Quinn, Pashies kittens) need to be spayed too. Thank you again! Sincerely, Jacqueline Resch- SI, NY


**Dear Muffin's,

We are the NJ couple who adopted "Dashing Wesley" from the Underdog Railroad. He is our love & our joy thanks to Liane & Glenn. Great folks doing a great job! Enjoying this web site. Keep up the good work. Marilyn & Norman


**Hello Muffin's, You do a great service. Irene Sturla


**Dear Jude,

Our web site is http://www.suna.petfinder.com/ We have really enjoyed using petfinder and when we found out about your web site we were thrilled! We have calls from time to time from NYC and we've never known were to send them - it's good to know you are there! We are a very small Humane Society - my husband & I retired three years ago and started a non profit animal sanctuary. We recently sold our home and bought a 10 acre apple orchard with the hope to help fund the sanctuary. Currently we have one other foster home that works with us. We've adopted (or assisted in adopting, if the owner can keep them for awhile) four hundred cats and dogs in our area to new pet owners!! It consumes our lives and finances but we love it...we hope to make a difference now and in the future when we pass on. We surly would love to know more about you and look forward to receiving your newsletter. Take care and best wishes - Gail


**Dear Muffin's,

This was my first visit to your website but will not be my last. I found it very informative but mostly a lovely place just to read about the different sites and listen to the music. Enjoyed immensely the MONDAY CANDLE CEREMONY ALONG WITH THE RAINBOW BRIDGE STORY. Also the American Spirit, something so many take for granted, that is until 9/11. I have to thank Tara(MaddieK9) for introducing me to your site.
