FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE : Protest and Rally to End the Killing of Cats and Dogs in NYC! Kay Riviello, President of No Kill New York, Inc. (501(c)3 Nonprofit) Host, September 20, 2014, Saturday, Noon-3pm City Hall, New York City Kay Riviello has led the grassroots effort of the FB group, New York Animal Rights Alliance America with about 10,000 members, for about four years and now brings together between 300 and 500 activists dressed in red to rise up against the atrocities committed by New York Animal Care & Control under the auspices of the Department of Health. At City Hall, we will address the press and present our agenda to the NYC Council and Mayor DeBlasio whom we believe need our support to initiate these revolutionary changes. We protest and rally for the following: 1) Cease and desist from the killing of cats and dogs at New York Animal Care & Control. 2) Repeal 0655/059 and Build True No-Kill Shelters in Queens & the Bronx, boroughs that have upwards of two million people each with no animal shelters. 3) Rescind the Breed Specific Legislation (BSL) mandate in which the Public Housing Authority prohibits dogs over 25 pounds (and certain breeds) and rescind the draconian dog/cat limit to one companion animal. BSL is against NY State Law. 4) Provide free and low-cost spay neuter for the citizens of NY and their companion animals. Such a program would save tax dollars to the True No Kill Shelter system in the long run and is the only humane solution for our current dilemma. 5) Stronger enforcement by the New York City Police Department of animal cruelty laws with augmented special units throughout the five boroughs. Assist the Dept of Agriculture to arrest “backyard breeders.” No Kill New York, Inc., plans to file a lawsuit against the Department of Health for the deplorable conditions at NY- ACC with lack of veterinary care, incompetence of a municipal entity, animal cruelty and negligence with wrongful death, which we believe should lead to criminal charges against certain individuals that have operated with impunity in this system unchecked for far too long. We are an animal rights organization and seek for nothing less than cats and dogs to have legal rights in a court of law. Additionally, we seek to have the criminal horse carriage industry dismantled immediately. The horses are forced to work many long hours in one of the most congested cities, with inadequate food and water, in all kinds of heat and cold, and horrific living conditions. We are also advocating for the banning of the USDA-led slaughter of geese, swan and crows, as well as the protection of pigeons and stronger legislation to protect all animals in our city. Please contact Kay Riviello at firstname.lastname@example.org or call (845) 856-7366 for interviews and further information. Visit nokill-newyork.org to view our poster campaign
