Bianca’s Furry Friends Feline Adoption Center
Howard Stern and Beth Stern partnered with the Leage to open the “Bianca’s Furry Friends Feline Adoption Center” in 2019. The Sterns estimate that 1,000 cats have passed through their home. They often have over 20 foster cats in their home at a time—in addition to their five resident cats. Beth says she and Howard wake up at four every morning. Howard takes off for the radio studio, and she gets started on her daily rounds of feeding, litter box-cleaning, cat socializing and administering medication where needed.
Bianca was Howard and Beth Stern’s beloved English Bulldog. Bianca was adopted from a rescue breeder in 2002 and passed away in 2012. Bianca’s full name was Bianca Romijn-Stamos-O’Connell-Ostrosky-Stern, with the extra names coming from their good friends John Stamos and Rebecca Romijn-Stamos. Then “O’Connell” was added after Rebecca married Jerry O’Connell in 2007. Bianca’s legacy lives on through Bianca’s Furry Friends foundation.

Beth Stern’s tireless, life-long efforts in helping animals in need led to her founding Beth’s Furry Friends. This organization has spayed or neutered, fostered, and helped get adoptions for thousands of cats and kittens in the United States. Stern was also vital to the creation of Bianc’as Furry Friends Feline Adoption Center and is a spokesperson and board member for the North Shore Animal League.
