    The world lost a great man. Angel to animals. Friend to many. And a great sense of humor

    Please accept our sincere condolences Zambito family and Ms. Tracy. Joe lived life with meaning and passion, a lesson we all need to follow. I feel honored that i could call him friend and mentor, especially in dog rescue world. Joe made an impact on everyone he met. When you loose someone so very special, you feel empty and hollow, but keep in mind, Joe would be swearing and complaining to knock it off and keep rescuing. Again, zambito family, i am so deeply sorry for your familys loss. Prayers to all.
    Btw, i am sure daja was waiting at the gates for her dad to arrive….

    Joe was one of the most passionate animal advocates ever and will be greatly missed by all of us in the rescue community. His devotion, drive and commitment towards helping the helpless were second to none. I feel honored to have known him. May he rest in peace and inspire us all from his heavenly perch.

    Joe we all miss you so so very much! It’s not the same in the rescue world without you. I am so heartbroken for your family and is friends and those pitties. You meant something in this world. You stood your ground for zero tolerance in animal abuse and neglect. Fly high with the Angels. I hope you’re behaving a wee bit up there. God bless you always. You left a legacy behind. You’re not someone that’s easily forgotten. Always in my heart. God Bless you.
