A contribution has been made to MSGAO in honor of the good deed performed by Stephanie Crump, who adopted Miss Esperanzo (aka Miss). Stephanie was honored by Susie Andrews. Here’s what happened, in Susie’s own words.
“We have two dogs, one a rescue chow mix, and the other a yellow lab. Of course, they’re our family. They got out and went on an adventure while we searched high and low for them. Neighbors, friends, service workers all helped us look to no avail. They have microchips, so they were immediately reported as missing.
“I got a call on a Monday morning. Someone had found them and taken them to a Germantown vet where they were scanned and we were immediately called. The lovely lady’s name is Stephanie Crump. She went beyond the call of duty. She saw them in the bushes near Poplar, and coaxed them out and they jumped in her car. When I picked them up, they were lounging in her backseat.
“I don’t know many people who would do what she did. Because of her love for animals, we have our dogs back. She would not accept a reward, and so I asked for her favorite charity. She named MSGAO.
“In Stephanie Crump’s honor, my son and I are donating $100 to MSGAO.
“Thank you for your work and for honoring Stephanie. I understand she has her second greyhound. You probably already know her. I had the pleasure to meet her under unusual circumstances.”
We join Susie in commending Stephanie for her actions and thank both of them for this generous contribution.
