NY ARAs Continue Rally at Hempstead Animal Shelter
Despite the wintry mix that dampened much of Long Island on Saturday, Feb. 5, 2011 approximately 100 activists turned out in support of the rally at the Town of Hempstead Animal Shelter in Wantagh, called for by the Hope for Hempstead Shelter organization.
Merrick resident and rally organizer Derek Donnelly told Anton Newspapers that he had reached out to over 500 supporters in the days before the rally, but due to the weather, he was very happy with the committed turnout. Activists came from all across Long Island, including Brooklyn and Queens, and even some from New Jersey.
