There are many articles on the blog written over a period of some years chronicling conditions at New York City Animal Care Centers, formerly known as New York City Animal Care and Control (NYCACC). Some people have dredged up articles that are years old believing that they reflect current conditions.
Things can change quickly and I would caution against using information taken from articles more than about six months old without confirming it. The Maddie’s grant is no longer in force, shelter killing is down more than 25% from 2014 to 2015. The old articles remain to understand the history but do not always apply to current conditions.
