Banned Volunteers, Animal Activists Demand Change at Town of Hempstead Shelter

Activists and former volunteers stage protest outside Town of Hempstead Animal Shelter.

"Let us in! Let us in!" was the battle cry of concerned residents, rescue workers and pet lovers who staged a protest outside the Town of Hempstead Animal Shelter in Wantagh on Thursday.

Check out Patch's video report to see what the group is fighting for and how the Town of Hempstead is responding to the criticism of its shelter's practices.

I am a Bostonian staying here in Long Island on a long-term assignment for my company. This article summarizes what I have learned about the thoroughly corrupt political culture that has bled this area dry and has doomed it to slow but certain oblivion. An animal shelter is being maintained for the sake of political patronage with no regard for its true mission. Beyond shocking. How Kate Murray tolerate this situation for a moment only shows that, however well-meaning she may be in some regards, she is at very least a prisoner of the political machine that runs Long Island.
