A message from the Coach:

 
 

"This spring our family adopted Blaze, our third rescue and fourth dog, from a shelter he'd lived in for three years. He lived with 28 other dogs and over fifty cats, in filthy, unhealthy, inhumane conditions, slowly starving from being malnourished and provided with inadequate veterinarian care. Within three miles of where we lived for three years, since moving to New York to coach the Rangers; these animals suffered while, though unknowingly, we did nothing. We will never turn away again.

"Our family foundation is partnering with the New York Rangers, to hold a dog walk fundraising event. We are reaching out to you, the Rangers’ fans and dog enthusiasts, to help us bring humane conditions to this shelter as well as generating awareness for proper animal care. Come take a walk with myself, the players and our families, to raise funds that will make a substantive difference for the betterment of animals. Thank you and see you there!"

-- John Tortorella
