Not too shy to talk


I have a contact at PATH since I created my petition (about priority seating issue) and she's been very responsive thus far. She says that they are accepting walk-ins to this event tonight, so I do hope people will come out and say what's on their minds! I mentioned the lack of service to WTC to her and she was like, "can't be helped" - they have to fix damage left over from Sandy. I said, "Sandy was TWO YEARS ago this month!"

They really need to hear from our community.

Re: Dumped cat , taken off the streets, now not wanted.

His comment could have been about the first person to criticize LHS. I appreciate your constructive criticism and you\'re right on many counts. But the "facts" about the dog you mention are not publicly known and there was a reason (that the owner did not disclose) why the dog had to be put down. THAT didn't make its way into the press, so unfortunately LHS gets a bad rap.
The folks at the shelter truly try their best...and no one would work there for such little pay if they did not honestly love animals with all their hearts. It's very difficult to run a shelter in such a large city where much of the population will not spay or neuter and will readily dispose of animals for minor issues. Also, we are in a city where dog fighting amongst Pit Bulls still exists and where local government consistently cuts funding. Dealing with all of that is an enormous challenge, as I'm sure you can imagine. But I disagree that animals are killed "for no good reason" -- it's far more complicated than that. I certainly wish that this issue could be seen with more compassion--both toward the animals and those who are faced with the task of euthanizing.

I really do not understand why people who obviously love animals, who work or volunteer at a shelter and those who do rescue on their own cannot find a common ground. This is the last I'll say on the topic, but it is truly unfair to malign the only (and underfunded) shelter in a huge city unless you have been in the trenches there, cleaning cages, walking dogs, and tending to sick animals.

I'm relieved and pleased to hear that the kitty is NOT feral - it was just a guess based on some of the information provided. I apologize for making a premature & erroneous observation.

I don't know if you've ever spent time volunteering at Liberty HUMANE Society, but they are certainly not in the habit of putting down cats with infections or other illnesses. In fact, they are overrun with cats because they do everything in their power to find animals good, safe homes--and that takes time & resources. So, before you malign the city's ONLY animal shelter perhaps spend some time there observing how hard the staff work to keep animals alive and placed in quality homes.

About this cat in question, he sounds like a true feral and if that's the case it might not be fair to try and convert him into a domesticated house pet. He will not be happy nor make a good pet and could continue to run away to be free on the streets.

Yes, I wasn't super clear: He called her "a stupid blond" in Spanish to his boss. She answered him back, in Spanish, quoting him.

I have to chime in here. A friend went to the Taqueria and ordered lunch with her colleague. After it had been wrapped up she and the colleague decided to dine there instead but were told that was not possible--though there were tables available. "We already wrapped it up," was the excuse. She continued to argue the point that it seemed unreasonable to not allow them to dine there despite the food being already packaged - when one of the workers involved spoke in Spanish to his boss. She answered back, in flawless Spanish, "I may be blond and I may be dumb, but I'm not deaf." And they walked out, never to return.

Did it not stand to reason that those "middle-aged women with hula-hoops" might also be part of JC List? And not be the least bit pleased by such a categorization? (I see you apologized for being ageist. I can't see it as sexist, since we are women hooping, but ageist----OUCH!)
