Operation Rescue Paw
The Rescue Paw Foundation, founded by Candy Udell, an East Hampton resident and the president of London Jewelers, has teamed up with the Animal Rescue Fund of the Hamptons to rescue young dogs from entering a high-kill shelter in Lawrence County, Ala. Eleven young mixed-breed dogs came from Alabama to Wainscott on Oct. 7, saved from “deplorable conditions,” according to a release from the Animal Rescue Fund.
“We are very grateful to Candy Udell and the Rescue Paw Foundation for providing spay-neuter services in the Deep South and transporting these adorable dogs,” said Sara Davison, the executive director of ARF.
“There are many dogs in need of rescue from very rural areas where overpopulation is rampant,” Ms. Udell said.
The organizations see this as the first of many collaborations. The dogs will be put up for adoption once they have passed an exam with ARF’s veterinarian.
Gene Grossane of East Hampton has launched the Suffolk County offices of Biosweep, a firm offering odor removal and air and surface decontamination services for problems arising from mold, smoke, pollen, and animals. Services extend to fire and water damage and crime scene and meth-lab cleanups.
Mr. Grossane was trained here by representatives from the national company. Biosweep, he said, offers a service that is needed on Long Island.
From athletic facilities to hotels and restaurants and other places where questionable odors can occur, Mr. Grossane looks forward to answering the age-old question, “Honey, what’s that smell?”
Joining Brown Harris
Brown Harris Stevens, a South Fork real estate company, has announced that Mary Ann Cinelli, a longtime agent in the area, has joined the firm.
“We could not be more pleased to have an agent of Mary Ann’s caliber decide to join our ranks,” Cia Comnas, the company’s executive managing director, said in a release.
Ms. Cinelli began her real estate career in the tristate area before moving to the South Fork, where she has worked for more than 15 years. She lives with her husband, Michael Cinelli, in Sag Harbor, and will be working primarily out of the Brown Harris Stevens brokerage office in Bridgehampton.
