 border=We kicked off 2015 by recognizing two incredible New Yorkers whose passion is contagious. Stephanie Mattera (left):Stephanie is a communications professional with a passion for creating social change. She holds an M.S. in PR and Communications from NYU. Her love for animals and growing up in a house full of rescued animals who were all considered members of the family, led Stephanie to become the Mayor's Alliance for NYC’s Animals Spokesperson (a position she's held for the past 4 years). Stephanie advocates for spaying and neutering pets, rescue and adoption, and the responsibilities of being a pet parent at community events and on local news segments. Stephanie is mom to three beloved rescue pets of her own, Japanese Chins Keiko and Romeo, and a Calico kitty, Sophie.

Caroline Loevner (right): Caroline found Beau, who was on an euthanasia list, at a Philadelphia shelter after her previous Husky, Nikki, died at 16 of a degenerative disk condition. Every week, Caroline & Beau are sharing their time and talent at several local institutions, including the Ronald McDonald House, a day-care facility for people with HIV, and an inpatient drug rehab center. Caroline is an integral part of the Imperial Court of New York, raising funds and awareness for the LGBT community.

Model 2Heather Mills is an activist charity campaigner and United Nations Association Goodwill Ambassador.  Heather recently appeared on the Hit US Television show Dancing with the Stars and donated all of her proceeds from the show to Viva!, (Vegetarians International Voice for Animals) to which Heather is a committed Patron and activist. Heather now lives purely on a plant based food diet as she is painfully aware of the brutal treatment of factory farmed animals in the UK and around the world.  Her interest in the benefits of holistic nutrition was first stimulated in 1994 when a strictly organic plant based raw diet healed a persistent infection in her leg where prescribed medicine had failed.  Fighting for the humane treatment of animals is now at the forefront of Heather's campaigning. She has received praise by both Viva! and Peta for her hands on approach helping to fight the animal cause.
