Someone's hurting cats in Astoria
In December, our beloved community cats went missing, and despite numerous attempts to report the situation, we were unable to get help from authorities. Taking matters into our own hands, we started posting ads on Craig's list and we created a website (astoria7.org) and Facebook page (Astoria7). We soon discovered there were many missing or dead (but mostly missing) cats in Astoria.
We are not sure what is going here, but we do know that there is not enough being done to investigate all these disappearances. We have begun going to local community board and community council meetings in an effort to get more cooperation from local authorities. We are also compiling the many reports of animal abuse and missing animals, and we will be sending these to city officials so that they can see that there is an animal protection crisis in New York City.
