Tonight Show Elayne Boosler June 3, 2015

If you think you can have a better time anywhere on earth than being on The Tonight Show and hanging out with Jimmy, you can’t. Getting ready for my next visit.

Animal Activist? Well, yes. This is what I do the other 23 hours of every day. I run my own nationwide non-profit animal rescue and advocacy organization, Elayne Boosler’s “Tails of Joy“.

We’re always under construction. Of course, I’m from New York. We’re using the same guys who are doing La Guardia Airport, so please check back in eighteen years, and the site will be almost ready. Thank you. We used dogs, cats and elephants to build Elayne’s animal rescue website, “Tails of Joy”, so of course that was done on time. You can always trust animals.
