Three weeks ago, with no explanation for their action, the Town of Hempstead Animal Shelter dismissed their workers and volunteers that, among other duties, found homes for many of the very adoptable animals that pass through their shelter. The two people on the payroll were transferred to other Town departments; the volunteers were just told not to return.
I know firsthand how wonderful so many dogs that are given up for mostly pathetic reasons, can be. I took a 7 year old Chihuahua into my home from there and he is surely the most perfect creature ever.
This Tuesday, November 9th, the town of Hempstead is holding their monthly meeting during which people are allowed, at the end of this meeting, to speak up about any issue of serious concern. Many of us in the rescue community plan to use our allotted 2 minutes at the end of the meeting to plead for the return of these wonderful people whose efforts saved countless lives, every day.
Why in the world would this shelter wish not to save dogs when such rescues have been made so easy for them. What excuse can there possibly be for choosing to put these very adoptable animals down, instead of allowing them to go to certified rescue groups that will find them wonderful second chances at life.
We need you there for support and help in spreading the word about this situation. We need your amazing ability to change inconceivable wrongs to rights so that we can continue to save lives.

West Shore Road/ Mill Neck Oyster Bay
there is a big problem with water running down from property located in Mill Neck onto West Shore Road. The LIRR is directly above the VERY SHARP TURN!! Its getting worse and we are approaching the winter and this situation will turn into an ice skating rink!! Im afraid there will be a very bad accident if something is not done!! please let me know who else can i contact for this situation....
Mill Hill Road And Shore Road
under the long island railroad overpass, located at the intersection of mill hill road and shore road , mill neck,ny...there has been heavy water seepage across roadway, which is also on a sharp turn, causing dangerous conditions...with winter approaching and icy conditions , this will become extremely dangerous.
201 Hungry Harbor Rd Valley Stream, NY 11581, USA
A few months ago a new traffic light was installed at this intersection. There is a left turn arrow from Brookfield Road onto Hungry Harbor Rd. However, there is no right turn arrow onto Brookfield Rd. from Hungry Harbor Rd. This causes confusion when the left turn arrow is on and the cars on Hungry Harbor do not know when it is safe to make a right turn. This should be corrected.
Rugby Rd. And Demott Ave. Rockville Centre, NY
long hole stretched across Demott Ave. and Rugby Rd. which has been getting worse every week. Its on west bound side of road 1 small hole in rd and 1 big tear in middle of rd. It needs to be fixed now not next month or next year!
Rt 25 & South Woods Rd
The green light turn lane signal on Rt 25E for people turning left (north) onto South Woods Rd is too short. Every day that turn lane backs up at least 1/10 of a mile because only about 6 or 7 cars can complete the turn before the light turns red. I've sat through it 3 times attempting to make that turn. Often drivers continue to make the left AFTER the signal has turned red, which has caused many, many close calls with people on the westbound side of the intersection. Many people avoid trying to make that left onto South Woods Rd and instead go through the shopping center parking lot behind the AT&T phone store on the NE corner - which creates a hazardous situation of people speeding through the parking lot. Other people make a right through the Best Western parking lot on the SE corner and then make a U turn on Piquets Lane so they can cross Rt 25 onto South Woods Rd. Another hazardous situation - all because the turn lane signal does NOT stay green long enough. Please fix this. It's ridiculous and dangerous.

numerous large pot holes with sharp edges left by National Grid on Woodland Avenue from Merrick Rd to St Regis Street
Some of the pot holes have smoother edges from traffic but no real repair has been done.
