  1. Both are on the kill list and they start early – so if you can help, or know someone who can, please do it NOW! This place is a killing factory, regardless of what the statistics tell you. These guys are siblings and obviously need vet care, too. NYC ACC will not vet them.

    1. Check out the link to John Sibley’s blog today if you want to know the truth. And then go adopt/foster yourself some kittens if you can.

  2. How can their kill rate be 17% and yet they have so many on their kill lists every night? I can’t image they get pulled every night – it would be overwhelming to the other rescues.

  3. They aren’t pulled every night – many of them die. Please read the article at the John Sibley blog. It has some important information that those in power would rather not talk about. Their kill rate is way higher than 17% (in fact, out alive rate is probably closer to 17%). They are quite frankly, getting away with murder.

  4. I believe their kill rate to be higher than 17% – the numbers given on their website are typically heavily massaged to make them look good. (Example: transfers to rescue are lumped into adoptions – in 2011, for instance, ACC did a grand total of 5730 adoptions to the public for the entire year.) Given the regularity with which statistics are falsified there I am very suspicious of their numbers.

  5. Okay – so the 17% comes from NYCACC itself – I was wondering where that number was coming from because it doesn’t seem to reflect reality.Kit looks pretty bad – not surprised that he wasn’t pulled considering that some of the other cats on the list don’t seem to have any issues. I just want to pick him up and tell him it will be okay… :-(

  6. If anyone has an update on these kittens, I’d like to know.
    Hoping and praying . . . they certainly have had a rough time of it in their short lives.

    1. They are at NYC ACC, so I’m afraid it’s much more likely that they are already dead. These are the same people who left Robert, a dog hit by a car and paralyzed, in a cage for three days with no medical care (and with no one noticing that he could not urinate, either). These are not good people.

      1. I know – that’s the reality of NYC ACC. They are not good people and it infuriates me that they go on a daily killing spree, tax funded and trying to make people think they are all about the animals. I remember reading about Robert, and the cat with the broken leg that finally was released to Pets Alive. I’m sure there are many, many more stories.
        Sadly, on the kill list with these kittens was an old guy (17, I think) whose owner surrendered him (can’t imagine why).

        How do we stop the killing?

      2. The politics at NYC ACC are too thick and entrenched. New leadership is needed and if the horrors of ACC history (and today) aren’t enough to prompt that (and they aren’t), then I don’t know what will do it (short of an error in association or somesuch that makes the current leadership a political liability).

        They are all in bed with eachother, figuratively speaking, and someone needs to dump the bed and wash the linens on hot. With bleach. Extra bleach.

        The disgusting thing is that they do what they do under the aegis of of the ASPCA with all the money and political will that brings to bear. They could be doing so much *good* with their resources, but they are no better than MAS in that they are more inclined to *appear* to do good than to actually *be* good.

        The fact that they bully rescue groups to that end (animals died because YOU screwed up, not us) is just polish on the turd.

  7. Awww. Poor kitties. I hope they got out of there, alive and well. But considering that this is the NYC ACC we are talking about…I’m not going to hold my breath.

  8. Many of the photos I see from this shelter day after day of the cats and kittens posted on Facebook look very sick and/or wet and dirty. That shelter seems to be a horribly dirty — poor animals.

    1. And they all look scared to death – even the tiny kittens. It’s getting very hard to even look at the pictures anymore. Bless those who work so hard to get them out of that killing place.
