Animal activists face off with Stratford's mayor over outdated shelter
Animal activists voiced concerns over the outdated Stratford animal shelter at a Town Council meeting Monday night. The shelter has not been modified since 1957. Everyone seems to agree that it is time for a new one, but not everyone agrees where it should be built. Mayor Jim Miron has proposed the town lease space at the site of the newly proposed Bridgeport shelter. The shelter would be located on six acres at the former Shoreline Star racing kennels. Nancy Cummings is one of the original founders of Stars, the group that volunteers at the shelter. She said the move would be an inconvenience for staff and would like to see the current shelter renovated. Miron says that is not an option.
