Assemblywoman Connie Wagner
Assemblywoman Connie Wagner on Tuesday reminded consumers to make certain they clearly know all expiration dates and dormancy fees for gift cards and certificates they received this holiday season.

2009 Closing of 2 Long Island Shelters, the Bad Economy, & Rising Medical Costs Force Little Shelter to Cut Back on Crucial Medical & Community Services
Little Shelter Animal Rescue & Adoption Center www.littleshelter.com, one of Long Island’s oldest no-kill shelters dedicated to saving all companion animals in need, announced today that its Holiday Donation Drive has been extended until January 7, 2010. Little Shelter is under financial pressure and must cut back on services for needy animals due to a 30% decrease in donations, the 2009 closing of two Long Island shelters (Bide-A-Wee in Wantagh and Animal Haven in Flushing), and the bad economy, unemployment and foreclosures causing more animals to be surrendered to the shelter. Without holiday donations, Little Shelter will be forced to cut back on medical care for its 400 cats and 50 dogs and will reduce essential community animal care services.
