Be The Change You Wish To See.

Together, We Can Make The Shelters A Safe Place For Those Who Cannot Speak For Themselves.


Animal Shelters 911 is a group of individuals who have serious concerns about what really goes on behind the doors of animal shelters in New York State. 

From the outside looking in, things appear to be just fine for the animals. However, nothing is farther from the truth.

Our goal is to create change, so that no more animals will suffer. A place where animals are provided with the proper care and medical treatment, socialization, training and compassion they are entitled to and that they deserve. These things should go without saying in any animal shelter, but that, tragically, is not the case.

In order to effect change, people need to be informed and they need to get involved.

Our mission is two-fold. We need to fix our local shelters and we need to   change the laws. The current laws in NYS are failing miserably at protecting animals. Under the current laws, the only thing an animal needs is access to food, water and shelter and the definition of these things is very broad, at best. They don't need clean water or adequate shelter. They don't need prompt or proper medical care. As long as medical care is not being "refused", (again, the definition is very broad here), it doesn't need to be given timely or properly.

We will make things right for them, no matter how long it takes.

But make no mistake, time is of the essence.

The longer it takes, the more animals will suffer needlessly at the hands of the very people who are charged with caring for them.

Please join us in making this a reality. We are their voice. You can be too.

Please follow the link at the top of the page to learn more about the Companion Animal Protection Act (CAPA) and how we can all work together to introduce legislation that will protect shelter animals. 

 We are currently working with other animal advocate groups in NYS and have been in contact with lawmakers regarding shelter reform. Please continue to follow us on FB for the latest information.
