Ravenswood Cats in Danger
The New York City Housing Authority recently covered crawlspaces with locked grates at Ravenswood Houses, trapping cats under the buildings in 150 degree temperatures, with no food or water.
Alley Cat Allies has asked New York City Housing Authority (NYCHA) Chairman John B. Rhea that the grates be unlocked immediately so local groups can access the crawl spaces to assess the situation and rescue any cats trapped under the building. We also asked that NYCHA re-evaluate their feral cat policy and allow local volunteers and feral cat groups to start a Trap-Neuter-Return program at Ravenswood Houses.
Alley Cat Allies is in contact with local groups and will give updates on the situation as soon as possible.
