Christine Quinn is NOT a friend to NYC's animals

Christine Quinn is NOT a friend to NYC's animals - and to create a more humane city, she cannot become Mayor. That’s why we’ve launched a new site to educate voters about her anti-animal protection record:
From her refusal to help the abused carriage horses to her opposition to putting lifesaving fire sprinklers in pet stores after hundreds of animals perished, Christine Quinn shows callousness rather than compassion. She only cares about her political career.
And frankly, it begs a question: if Quinn has such disregard for our city's animals, how would she treat the people of New York City if she were in charge?
She literally left animals out in the cold by killing efforts to build animal shelters in the Bronx and Queens. And she opposed adding humane education into our city schools' curriculum.
Quinn thinks she can skate by and win with a record like this - but since we’ve started our campaign against Quinn, she has dropped 20 points in the polls. We have a real opportunity to send a message that our voices as humane voters will be heard in this election for NYC Mayor. Help us get it done!
Keep fighting for what’s right,
Allie Feldman
