Bobbi & the Strays seeks new building

From NBC 4:

"Throw us a bone!" a Queens animal shelter begs.

Bobbi and the Strays, home currently to 23 cats and 25 dogs, is looking for a new building because its shelter for large dogs is slated for demolition.

The animal shelter currently has two buildings: one at Atlas Mall in Queens for the cats and smaller dogs, and a building near the airport for the larger dogs.

The nonprofit no-kill animal rescue organization also provides educational programs to schools and the community, educating children and adults on responsible pet ownership and organizing spay/neuter services and events.

Thanks for posting this Crappy. I got my dog from Bobbi and the Strays and I think they're great people.

Shouldnt the city just give them a building for a very low cost in a small industrial building maybe?
Nah not this city especially with bloomberg.
Just more people throwing dogs and cats on the street. Pathetic.

These people REALLY care about their animals and getting them into good homes.

You see a lot of shelters being very money-centric and these people just simply arent that way.. they really care and you can see that when you speak to them.

I wish them the best and hope they find help somewhere.
