A packed house at our emergency meeting tonight to save the Elmsford animal shelter, a no kill shelter.  Some good news! Greenburgh Councilman Francis Sheehan (who adopted pets from the shelter)  and Town Attorney Tim Lewis discovered a deed restriction stating that “the grantee, its successors and assigns shall use the said premises solely and exclusively for park, recreational, or general municipal purposes or as an animal shelter in perpetuity.”  As a result, Pet’s Alive will not be able to sell the property, which was originally donated to them (for $10) to a commercial developer.  We’re meeting with the President of Pet’s Alive tomorrow morning and will ask Pet’s Alive to continue operating the no kill shelter or to allow another non profit animal rights group to manage the shelter operations.  Many volunteers at the shelter and other representatives of Pet’s Alive were in attendance at the meeting.


We will be reaching out to lawmakers at the federal, state and county levels seeking their support for the no kill animal shelter. New York State Assemblyman Tom Abinanti spoke with me earlier today and indicated his desire to help the cause.    PAUL FEINER
