ASPCA opens at Atlas Park

From the Queens Chronicle:

The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals last Friday officially relocated from Greenpoint, Brooklyn, and set up operations inside the spacious Atlas Terminals in Glendale.

The national animal welfare organization has signed five-year leases with ATCO Advisory Services on two separate sites at the historical former manufacturing and warehousing property on Cooper Avenue at 80th Street. One space houses the ASPCA’s six mobile spay and neuter clinics and an office, while the other will be used as a veterinary facility, which it anticipates to open in April. Approximately 20 members and two full-time veterinarians will staff the two sites.

Neither the mobile facilities nor the clinic will take emergencies; both will provide free and low-cost spay and neuter surgeries. The ASPCA’s humane law enforcement operations will remain in Long Island City.

I was wondering why I started seeing one of the mobile trucks days in a row on Cooper Ave just outside of K-9 Caterers. I assumed it had to do with K-9. Well, I support what the ASPCA does, and I can think of worse neighbors. I'm not really clear about which building(s) they'll be in, though, does anyone know? Because I don't think it's great to keep the mobile trucks on the street 24/7.

It's about time the ASPCA found a home in Queens. We are one of the most over-populated boroughs, yet when it comes to our animals, there is no ASPCA to help us with our animal concerns. Very happy they are here in Queens. They are a wonderful and much needed organization.

There is a mental instability with some people in this movement. Nathan winograd is a fraud. he is in bed with breeders and hoarders. his lies of no pet overpopulation is causing more pain and suffering for all dogs and cats. please learn the facts. he is making money selling his dumb ass books which breeders - PetPAC and center for consumer freedom are promoting.
