GREENBURGH, N.Y. -- The Greenburgh Town Board unanimously voted to authorize Town Supervisor Paul Feiner to execute a donation agreement between the town of Greenburgh and Paws Crossed Animal Rescue to transfer a parcel located at 100 South Warehouse Lane, formerly known as Pets Alive to Paws Crossed to be used as a no kill animal shelter.
Pets Alive had shut down the former Elmsford animal shelter in September of last year. The shelter has a group of volunteers and supporters and is the only truly no kill animal shelter in the region. "I'm thrilled to highlight this very happy ending," said Town Supervisor Paul Feiner.
Hundreds of animal rights advocates were devastated when the shelter closed last year. Instrumental in the process of securing the property were Town Board members Francis Sheehan, Ken Jones, Diana Juettner and Kevin Morgan.
