The L’s Conscientious Objector, Amanda Park Taylor, drops by with a request:

While I’ve certainly availed myself of this space to ask our readers to do things/help people (and I’m about to do so again), I’ve never had the chutzpah to get super, freecycle-stylee specific. Here goes.

My favorite animal rescuer, Emelinda Narvaez, of Earth Angelsneeds an air conditioner. Hers broke, and she has health problems that necessitate a/c in the summertime. She also keeps the frailest, sickest animals at her house, and they need a/c too.

Do you have a not-too-old spare a/c, sitting in a basement or closet? I can arrange for pick-up, and will thank you BY NAME in my next column. Please contact me at, for fast pick up and tons of good karma.

Rising costs of gas, food, etc.have left her coffers empty. Can you visit her website and make a Paypal donation? Or maybe you’d like to foster a dog or cat? Or take some pet food, supplies, towels, a carrier, crate, or cash to her at Petco in Union Square?

She’s there at Petco on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays 7:00pm – 10:00pm and on Sundays from 4:00pm – 8:00pm.

Please please please pretty please. We adopted our old dog, Miika [pictured], from Emelinda, and she was the greatest dog ever…

  • I saw her on NY1 few weeks ago.

    here is link to that video:

    I don’t have an old A/C, but if everyone chips in little bit we can buy her a new one? I’m gonna see if I can swing around there today or tomorrow and help out.

  • gjk- thanks a lot! turns out the a/c issue has been resolved, but PLEASE donate/help/lend a hand.

    the NY1 piece led a lot of people to contact emelinda and ask her to take their animals- cats and dogs.

    adopt! foster!

  • oh thanks, good news. also for people who didn’t know there are cats for adoption inside the store as well, and if you can’t adapt you can also donate.
