COMPTROLLER STRINGER AUDIT: IMPROPER HANDLING OF DRUGS AND POOR SHELTER CONDITIONS AT ANIMAL CARE & CONTROL.
Once again, Scott Stringer’s office has released a horrifying report on the NYC AC&C.
“Expired medications distributed to animals, vaccines refrigerated with staff lunches”
“Animal Care & Control is running an operation that could make your stomach turn,” Comptroller Stringer said. “We found expired drugs, harmful conditions, and vaccines stored next to frozen remains. How we treat our most vulnerable creatures is a reflection of our decency as a society, and AC&C is failing in that important responsibility.”
“Our audit indicates a lack of effective management and financial and operational negligence. As a result, questionable conditions put the well-being of the animal population at risk,” Stringer said. “Our City can and must do a better job of treating homeless animals with compassion and respect.”
Will this finally bring the change, that the NYC AC&C desperately needs?
