Every year at their annual Picnic and Reunion Event, German Shepherd Rescue of New England (www.gsrne.org) recognizes an individual who shared time, talent and resources with the Organization. For his tireless work on their behalf in 2012, Abby Kennels’ owner Kevin Lanouette was awarded the GSRNE Starfish Pin. Kevin became involved with GSRNE several years ago. When foster homes are not available and a dog needs to be removed quickly from its home, Kevin always finds space for it at the Kennel. He has often met volunteers well after closing time or before opening time to receive a dog in need. Last Christmas, Abby Kennels of Chelmsford (www.abbykennels.com) held a wildly successful Pictures with Santa event and GSRNE was the recipient of the donations. Congratulations Kevin!
