BRONX, NEW YORK, FEBRUARY 25- The future of curbside animal shelters like this one, recently spotted near the Grand Concourse in Norwood, remain uncertain as the City Council will soon vote on a bill that would bring an intake center for stray animals to each borough.
Despite all the snow and cold temps, animal lovers across the city have been refusing to call the Center for Animal Care and Control for fear that if the cats are not quickly adopted, they would be put to sleep. Residents say an unnamed animal lover began taking care of these stray cats in the area more than three years ago and the kitty motel sits on an abandon lot.
The City Council's Health Committee was expected to discuss the bill on February 25, that if the bill passed, would establish a full-service animal shelter in every borough.
