Volunteers of Stamford’s Animal Shelter continued to voice their concerns for the future of the shelter and its animals Sunday. Volunteers have not been allowed at the shelter for months after an investigation was launched into former director Laurie Hollywood, who is now facing reckless endangerment charges for allegedly adopting out aggressive dogs. The group held a rally downtown Sunday in support of the former director and encouraged people to sign a petition promoting a “no kill” shelter.
The petition, which now has over 3,000 signatures, will be presented to the city’s newly formed Animal Control Center Task Force. Created last month by the mayor, the task force has been working to determine future policies and procedures at the shelter. Stay with It’s Relevant for more on this story.
