The Smithtown, N.Y. Town Board has amended its zoning code to exclude "animal hospice" in residential areas. This would primarily affect ANGEL'S GATE a non-profit 501 (C) (3) organization which adopts special needs animals, including those nearing the end of life on earth.
Although Angel's Gate had been repeatedly inspected, it had never received a zoning violation under the old code. Recent complaints from neighbors about ”excessive” garbage cans and cars legally parked in the street have sparked the Town Board into this negative action.
Animal activists from all over Long Island are concerned that eventually, they may be prevented from caring for sick and injured animals in their homes, too.
Until he extends the circle of compassion to all living things, man will not himself find peace. --Albert Schweitzer
SAVE ANGEL'S GATE HOSPICE FOR ANIMALS! We urge you not to "Zone Out" Angel's Gate. This is a unique humane organization dedicated to relieving the suffering of the most needy and vulnerable of animals, many of who had been family pets. Angel's Gate provides them with a true home atmosphere where they are cared for and made comfortable for the rest of their lives.
Families no longer able to care for their animal have a loving alternative to euthanizing their "best friend". Child volunteers, school, religious and other youth organizations and the community at large benefit from having Angel's Gate in their midst. Do not take this away from them!
Keep up the great work. Look what you've accomplished!
