A Good Sam photographed a litter of emaciated puppies on a road in NC then sent the photos and address to Granville Co AC. The director left him a voicemail in response in which she said, “They appear to be on the thin side but nothing as far as totally emaciated or anything like that.”
Business Insider has an article detailing how the irresponsible public is helping the pets affected by Hurricane Sandy via social networking sites while NYC ACC seems to be coming up short:
Rumors are going around that ACC is euthanizing large numbers of animals, but Jane Hoffman, the president of the Mayor’s Alliance for NYC’s Animals, which oversees the ACC, said in an e-mail that’s all it is–a rumor.
She added that if people want to help, they can adopt, donate, and volunteer.
Thanks for the tip Jane.
