Animal Care And Control Of NY Seeks Towel And Blanket Donations To Comfort Shelter Animals

NEW YORK (1010 WINS) — Your old security blanket could make all the difference to a homeless pet!

Animal Care & Control of New York is seeking donations of unwanted blankets and towels to comfort the cats, dogs and rabbits in the city animal shelters.

1010 WINS Susan Richard Reports:

“We’re preparing for another really difficult summer,” says AC&C Executive Director Julie Bank, who tells 1010 WINS that the warm weather is when they see not only more strays coming into the shelters, but also litters of unwanted puppies and kittens.

“They don’t care if a towel is ugly or has an old print on it or even if there’s a stain,” Bank added, “So if you’re looking to do any kind of spring cleaning, Animal Care & Control would love to take the leftovers that you have, because it will make the animals’ day that much brighter.”

All donations will be accepted, but laundered towels and blankets are preferred, so that AC&C won’t have to bear the expense of washing the items before use.

    DRG THANKS FOR THE SENSIBLE COMMENT. BULLY BREED RESCUE, INC. KNOWINGLY ADOPTS OUT PITBULLS THAT WERE RESCUED FROM THE MICHAEL VICK DOG FIGHTING RING. WHEN ONE OF THESE DOGS KILLS SOMEONE I WONDER IF THIS AGENCY COULD BE CHARGED WITH MANSLAUGHTER SINCE THIS IS HIGHLY IRRESPONSIBLE CONDUCT.

  2. DRG says:

    A NYC Charity run by a 6-year-old has been collecting and donating these items to the ACC for a year now. We’ll even pick up!

  3. Pitbulls Should Be Banned says:

    A LARGE NUMBER OF CIVIL CASES IN COURTS NATIONWIDE ARE PITBULLS ATTACKING OTHER DOGS OR PEOPLE AND THE SEEKING OF DAMAGES. THEY ARE THE LUCKY ONES. MANY PEOPLE AND OTHER DOGS DIE FROM A PITBULL ATTACK. WATCH JUDGE JUDY OR THE PEOPLE’S COURT. AN AVERAGE OF 3 CASES A WEEK ON THESE TV COURT SHOWS ARE FOR PITBULL ATTACK DAMAGES.

  4. Pitbulls Should Be Banned says:

    THESE ANIMAL RESCUE ORGANIZATIONS AND SHELTERS LIKE BULLY BREED RESCUE INC. AND NEWS OUTLETS LIKE NEWS 12 CT ARE BROADCASTING FLAT OUT LIES ABOUT PITBULLS BEING FAMILY FRIENDLY AND GREAT WITH CHILDREN. SEARCH THE WEB AND YOU’LL SEE THESE DOGS ARE BRED FOR FIGHTING AND KILL AND INJURE THOUSANDS EVERY YEAR. THE LIES THE ORGANIZATIONS SPREAD CAN HAVE DEADLY CONSEQUENCES.

    1. DRG says:

      Exactly, do your research and you’ll see that on temperament tests year after year, bully breeds rate higher and better than MOST breeds.
      They used to be called the Nanny Dog until miserable human beings started training them to fight.
