Gimme Shelter

In August of 2017, the Gimme Shelter organization became a division of Abandoned Animals Inc.

Gimme Shelter is a response to animal abuse and abandonment in southern Hamden during 2016. Hamden & North Haven residents Steffy Tirado, Jerry Dananberg and Lenny Young were all previous acquaintances from the Hamden Dog Park. They believe that the silent majority of pet-people are caring souls and will step up when given a platform.
