Compassionate Brothers Receive Humane Hero Award

In a special ceremony at the 70th anniversary Fall Festival at Citi Field on Saturday, October 18, 2014, North Shore Animal League America was honored to present brothers Ramon and Joel Quinones with the Humane Hero Award for their heroic actions toward saving the life of Quattro the cat. On May 7, in Paterson, NJ, a group of children brutally beat Quattro, a stray cat, with bricks, stones, and sticks. The assault only ended when Ramon and Joel stepped in, chasing the gang away while protecting Quattro.
