The North Fork Animal Welfare League formally took over operations of Riverhead Town’s animal shelter Friday morning.

The nonprofit organization has been running Southold Town’s shelter since 1980, and Riverhead officials and animal lovers had been trying to get the group to take over Riverhead’s troubled shelter for years.

The town signed a three-year contract with NFAWL in December for $223,135 for the first year, with 2 percent bumps for each of the next two years.

“I am excited about the new venture,” said the group’s executive director, Gillian Wood Pultz, during an interview Friday morning at the shelter. “There’s a lot of places we can go here and lot of improvements we can make. Southold is almost done. We have the new shelter, we have all our programs set up. It’s like starting anew here.”

NFAWL not only will take over the operation of the town shelter, it also will take over the animal control function from the town, as it does in Southold Town.

Riverhead Supervisor Sean Walter welcomed NFAWL aboard at Thursday’s public Town Board work session, saying, “We’re going to do what we can to help you. I’m sure it will go seamlessly.”

In Riverhead, NFAWL has Ms. Pultz, who is an animal control officer herself, along with three other staff members: animal control officer Alisha Posteraro, kennel attendant Tammy Henderson and kennel attendant Ariel Reichel, who will be certified as an animal control officer soon.

Ms. Reichel had worked for the town as a kennel attendant and is now employed by NFAWL.

The two full-time employees that had been working for the town at the shelter are being moved to other positions, officials said.

Riverhead Town’s shelter has had a rocky relationship with animal lovers and volunteers over the years.

Many volunteers have claimed the town was restricting them from helping at the shelter, and the town largest non-police employee union, the Civil Service Employees Association, had even challenged some volunteer efforts in years past on the grounds that the volunteers were taking union jobs.

The CSEA had filed a grievance over the town’s contract with NFAWL, too, but Mr. Walter said this week the issue has been resolved, as those worker will still work for the town in other capacities.

The NFAWL employees are not in the union, and Ms. Pultz says she welcomes volunteers.

“I have a whole file ‘this big’ of blank volunteer applications,” Ms. Pultz. “Anyone can come in to fill out an application and they are going to be considered just like everybody else.

If it’s determined the town had a good reason for not letting someone volunteer, that person might not be allowed to volunteer for NFAWL either.

But, Ms. Pultz added, “We’re starting over with a clean slate.”

  • My heart goes out to this family because I know how horrible I would feel. My neighbor had two pit bulls, they had already bitten 3 people and were case my grandson one day. I called the pound and told them if those dogs came onto my property and tried to hurt my grandson or my dogs I will kill them without question. The pound told me the person who owns the pit bulls is on a court order to never have another dog due to some serious attacks from their other dogs, but yet, they have two pit bulls now. Thankfully, they moved last week and I was glad they (the pit bulls) never came onto my property. NOT . I saw the list and I know people who have been denied HOMEOWNER insurance totally because of their german shepards. So, no myth . reality. Good luck with insur

  • Cancellation of the right to demonstrate WITH prior announcementThe party was founded in 1981 by two 17yearolds with the nicknames Zewa (a leading handkerchief brand) and Kotze (vomit). In the following years it was joined by many punks and organized many demonstrations, which were sometimes ended by the police, often leading to arrests. The party was dissolved in 1986, but was recreated in 1994 and soon chose to participate in elections. In the 1997 Hamburg city elections the APPD received a stunning 5.3% of the votes in St. Pauli and thus became the fourthstrongest party in that district. In 1998 the APPD ran in the Bundestag election with Karl Nagel as its candidate for the chancellorship, and using slogans like “Labour is shit” (“Arbeit ist Scheie”) and “Drinking, drinking, just drinking every day” (“Saufen! Saufen! Jeden Tag nur saufen”). The APPD failed, however, to gain the 0.5% of the votes needed to pay to the voters in the form of a promised large party with free beer. With approximately 35,000, or 0.1%, of the votes, the APPD outperformed Lyndon LaRouche’s “BSo” and also the German Communist Party DKP.
