Donor Spotlights

When it comes to the MSPCA-Angell, State Street attorney Amy Mugherini has volunteered a considerable amount of her time helping animals.

Not only does she work frequently with the adoption center’s Transport and Community Outreach program, she is also a member of our Advisory Council, a group that provides strategic guidance and support to the organization. A devoted cat mom, Amy is a frequent MSPCA-Angell feral cat adopter and she makes a point of carving out time in her busy life to attend MSPCA-Angell fundraising events, such as Raise the Woof, Fast and Furriest, and Tails and Ales.

We appreciate everything that Amy has done for the MSPCA-Angell — our work depends on generous donors like her and we are so thankful for her continued support.

Retired information technology expert Alok Kapoor doesn’t think he’s ever met anyone who loved animals the way his late wife Karrie did. “I didn't grow up an animal lover the way my wife did, but I witnessed the bond and unconditional love Karrie shared with our dogs over the years — especially once she was diagnosed with cancer.”

While Karrie loved all kinds of animals, she especially adored Bernese Mountain dogs; she owned two of them when she and Alok first met. And it was her Berner named Baer who stood by her every step of the way through her cancer treatment, providing her with comfort and love through her last days.

Now, Baer is battling the same type of cancer that took Karrie’s life. “We’re doing everything in our power to help Baer combat this terrible disease and in a way that prolongs his quality of life,” said Alok, as Baer undergoes his own treatments at Angell.

Supporting the MSPCA-Angell in their mission of protecting animals and advancing animal health and welfare is one way Alok’s family continues to honor his wife Karrie's wishes — and honor her unending love of animals. “If our support enables the MSPCA to help others in similar situations, then we know we're making a difference.”
