Stop the Killing - Battle for No Kill New York Has Begun

I make no secret of how I feel about NYC ACC and what goes on there.  I alternate between disgust, horror and sadness – and ultimately seethe with anger.

A week ago, I put the ACC on a “wall of shame”, outlining a list of problems as well as giving a list of informational links. 

On October 4th, No Kill New York launched their campaign to prepare for to prepare for 2012: The Year of No Kill New York.  This plan is 90 days of action to influence anyone who has a say in how New York City manages its homeless, lost or injured animals.

I don’t know what all the actions will be, but I do know at least some of it is simply writing letters or emails to city officials. 

If there is to be reform at the ACC, we need as many people as possible to join the fight.  Even if you do not live in New York City or state, you can participate by helping to spread the word and by writing emails or letters.

The campaign kicked off with the explanatory note The Battle for No Kill New York Has Begun.  It gives a brief overview of the plan, who will be targeted, and how to sign up for action alerts, as well as NKNY’s mission statement. 

If you want to receive the alerts to know how you can help, email

Please join the fight. EVERYONE is needed to make this happen. There are NO excuses.  Everyone can take a few minutes to write a letter or email.
