Our animal shelters are full. Our rescues are full. People who have to re-home their pets have no place to go. Thousands of animals are “dumped” on our streets each year, often to reproduce and add to the problem of homelessness, while too many cats and dogs to count land in our animal shelters. As members of the Animal Alliance of Greater Syracuse, our goals include a significant reduction in the number of homeless animals on our streets and in our local shelters as well as an end to the euthanasia of healthy, adoptable animals. As we work in respectful collaboration with one another, we also seek to educate our community so as to bring a more enlightened and responsible attitude toward the companion animals in our area.
