While most people enjoyed various festivities over Memorial Day weekend, a dog named Sasha awaited rescue along with 60 feline friends when her owner fled the Maspeth apartment she called home.

The animals were without food and water for days before Animal Care and Control found them.

The owner was evicted from her home for having too many animals, but ultimately decided to leave them behind. Robin Demmo, a real estate agent whose help the missing tenant once enlisted in searching for an apartment, said the owner's name is Nina. Concerned with the welfare of the dog, Demmo had previously offered to take Sasha if no one else would, but received this cryptic response: "If one dies, they all die."

Since the animals were found, Demmo has taken it upon herself to save Sasha from an ill-fated future. She has taken Sasha out of the care of AC&C, which is not a no-kill shelter.

"I don't believe an animal should be abused. The dog does not deserve this," said Demmo, who works at Presidential Realty in Middle Village, an agency that specializes in finding homes for people with pets.

Sasha's worries are not over, however. Demmo, who has two dogs of her own, has reassured her landlord she will only keep Sasha until she is placed in a permanent home.

"If I can help a pet, I will. I would keep her if I could," said Demmo, whose back problems and small apartment prevent her from having a large dog that requires frequent walking.

Sasha is 12-year-old Labrador-shepherd mix that is great with kids. She also gets along with cats, as she lived with 60 of them for some time, and certain dogs. Demmo was told Sasha has enlarged mammary glands. She was spayed last summer by a rescue group that set aside money for the life-saving procedure. Demmo is hopeful that a loving family, maybe with a yard, will welcome Sasha into their home to live out the rest of her days.

"If someone would like to donate their time and come to walk her, that would also be greatly appreciated," said Demmo.

Those interested in walking or adopting Sasha are encouraged to call Robin Demmo at 347-527-2692. Demmo lives in Maspeth.

DOWNTOWN STAR ,

YOU'LL BE REALLY SCREWED WHEN PEOPLE GET TIRED OF YOUR LIES AND PUT YOU IN THE STREETS WHERE YOU BELONG. MAYBE YOU'LL WIND UP PUSHING YOUR SHOPPING CART WITH YOUR 30 CATS AND TALKING TO THE AIR. I CAN ONLY PRAY TO WITNESS THAT............

You truly deserve to be put behind bars and pay for your crimes. You rob hard working families and destroy their homes and then you move on to the next unsuspecting landlord. You are miserable with your life and you inflict your pain on those poor animals you drag around and call your pets.

What's really sad is no matter what ONLY they can ever love you because they"re innocent and they don't know what a truly mean and vicious person you are.

I am one of Robin's former landlords and if and when she reads this she will know exactly who wrote it. She claims to be a victim to landlords abusing her and she has 1 dog. I am an animal lover, but I have to agree with Nina she is a piece of shit. She moves in and sneaks all her cats in then destroys your apartment and doesn't even pay the rent.She knows the system and im sure the system knows her as well, if the system doesn't stop her she will fall victim of her own stupidity and eventually karma will catch up with her. What goes around eventually comes around. How she keeps the animals is worst than living in the streets
ONE ANGRY CHICK

I rented to Robin Demmo and her 40 FOURTY cats and 3 dogs. The destruction of that apartment and what it cost me is horrific. I checked the land lord tenant database, and found other landlords that she scammed. She moves in, sneaks the cats into the back room ,and proceeds to trash the floors and walls with cat and dog urine. When I took her to landlord tenant court, all of a sudden, I'm the one getting violations and the cops called on me. She's keeping another animal? She doesen't walk the ones she has. My floors can attest to that.
