Animal rescue organization, Rescue Ink, headquartered at Jo-Mar Dog & Cat Grooming in Floral Park, recently received a $5,000 donation from Dianne and Margaret Fleming, both professional artists and longtime residents of Garden City.
After 55 years, they recently sold their home located on St. Paul’s Place, with the assistance of Daniel Gale/Sotheby’s International Realty in Garden City. The former village residents said they “wished to leave a piece of ourselves behind,” to continue their concern and care for animals and chose Rescue Ink to donate a portion of the proceeds from the sale of their home.
“Besides offering our personal contribution to continue their great work helping homeless or injured animals, we hope this inspires others to consider this charity upon their move or any other opportunity that arises. We were happy to share our good fortune with them,” Diane and Margaret Fleming said.
