To die: Bonded pup and deaf pal torn apart by NYC Housing Authority

In a cruel twist of fate, a bonded pup and her deaf pal have been torn apart by the New York City Housing Authority that restricts pets weighing more than 25 pounds. Who can even count the amount of dogs killed by euthanasia since the city’s inception of the weight restriction law?

And on Monday, one day before September 11 – a day no one will ever forget, Porsha will lose her life at Brooklyn Animal Care Center. For no behavioral reasons, both dogs have been separated from their families and each other. (Her bonded pal Max is not on the list to die today)

A volunteer writes about Porsha.

“Porsha is truly a doll! She is so friendly and sweet. She makes super cute piglet noises when she’s happy. She seems housetrained and walks nicely on the leash. Porsha is reportedly friendly with kids, likes to play with toys and was bonded with her deaf housemate, Max , also at Bacc. She’s a good girl.”

Max # 40223 and Porsha # 40224.

    NYC housing authority need to revamp all their guidelines for animals. They are too strict and can tear families apart from their fur babies so easily. They get a decent salary for doing nothing to help people who have no choice but to live in apartments. Rules need to change now. I pray this baby gets out today and will keep an eye on the NYC list.
