Falls, SPCA of Niagara sign off on six-month deal

(Continued)

Niagara Gazette — "We are looking into other sheltering options," Dyster said.

Jennifer Pitarresi, a spokesperson for the not-for-profit's board, said the agency would have no problem agreeing to a "No Kill" clause in the terms of the project as the shelter already operates under that philosophy.

The facility has maintained a save rate above 90 percent — the standard set for "No Kill" facilities — since August 2012, according to statistics on the group's website.

"Everyone here lives the 'No Kill' philosophy every day," Pitarresi said.

The not-for-profit will continue to work with the city to try to come to terms.

"We're happy to look at whatever requests the city has in terms of a long-term contract," Pitarresi said.

Pitarresi said the six-month deal will allow both parties to examine the situation.

"Right now this creates space where everybody can breathe and look at their options," Pitarresi said.

Yes. Items should be taxed like they are everywhere else.
No, the indian reservations are sovereign land and they are selling them on their land.
Not up to me. Native Americans decide the rules on their land.
Don't care. Smoking isn't good for you.
