LODI, N.J. — Borough resident Samantha Palino raised $290 through an ongoing fundraiser to benefit her friend and animal control officer, Lysa DeLaurentis.
Palino's goal is to raise $500 in the first fundraiser for DeLaurentis, the animal control officer in Garfield, Prospect Park and Totowa, who's been caring for animals she can't find homes for.
"She does this all on her own besides the help of any volunteers she can get," Palino said on the fundraiser page.
"Let's help Lysa worry a little less and help raise some money for such an amazing rescue and woman, who I am extremely grateful to know and be able to help when I can."
