Gail Lustig is the amazing woman who organizes and hosts Goldstock at Camp Weequahic, a 103 acre summer camp which was founded by her family in 1953. To avoid the politics that ineveitably surround organizations, she works tirelessly, on her own rescuing great dogs who are about to be euthanized, drawing on an incredible community of dog lovers many of which by this time have become her extended family.
Gail could not be more humble about what she does, but she saves about 100 beautiful dogs a year, with the help of countless "volunteers". She finds dogs in need and emails alerts for help, to transport dogs from shelters with less-humane policies to homes and shelters in other states that will care for these dogs and in many cases, love them forever. Dogs are sometimes transported across the entire USA into caring hands.
