advocates and philanthropists.
|DEMAND that the City Council and the Comptroller’s Office investigate the current crisis at the AC&C|
|caused by the DOH’s budget cuts and new contract demands.|
|DEMAND appropriate funding for the AC&C, which now receives less than 84 cents per capita, when|
|the recommended amount ranges from $4 - $8!|

|RE: Crisis at Animal Care & Control
Dear [Name of Official]:
I am a [YOUR RELATIONSHIP TO] the City’s Animal Care & Control. The AC&C is, by its
own admission, in crisis. Why? Because the AC&C is facing massive budget cuts, placing
enormous strain on an already financially hurting organization.
Yet, nowhere in the AC&C's public statements and postings is it stated that the Department
of Health (DOH) is responsible for this crisis. The DOH controls the AC&C and sets it budget.
In response to AC&C pleas, I am stepping in with donations. However:
Animals suffer and die because of the DOH’s indifference.
While animals don’t vote, I do!
Sincerely [your name, address, and group association, if any]
|SPREAD THE WORD
ANIMAL CARE & CONTROL IS IN CRISIS,
FORCED TO SEEK PRIVATE DONATIONS SIMPLY TO
MAINTAIN BASIC STAFFING AND SERVICES.
SEIZE THIS OPPORTUNITY TO DEMAND MAJOR REFORMS.
