Animal Rescue Groups Get Windfall from Private Foundation

Wednesday, February 09, 2005

The money will be distributed by The Mayor's Alliance – a coalition of 65 different animal rescue groups and shelters. For the past two years, The Alliance has focused on implementing a "no kill" policy towards the city's homeless cats and dogs. WNYC's Kathleen Horan has the story.
