For far too long New York City has lagged behind the rest of the country in providing quality animal care. The root of today's problem is the city's Animal Care & Control (AC&C), the largest animal shelter system in the Northeast.

Thank you for posting. Signed. Commented. This is shameful, not only because NYC is one of the more wealthier cities, but I am certain the tax-payers of NYC would not be happy that their shelters are deemed on the bottom scale of the rest of the country. I know Nathan Winograd stated everything is determined by who is in charge of Animal control and how their philosophy will determine everything. Stated in the article: "AC&C is controlled by the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene, an agency whose core focus is the welfare of people, not animals. " Highly problematic. I hope they listen.

This is a very important petition by the NYC borough President to help the animals in the horrifically run AC&C High Kill shelters.. He is calling for the desperately needed total reconstructing that is the door to lead toward the planned Mayor's Alliance No Kill goal by 2015.Having Scott Stringer add his voice to this petition is beautiful and brings NYC closer to No Kill NYC becoming a reality.
Here is stringers release in Huffington Post for this petition...Thanks sooo much for sharing!!!!! Meeow!
