Bianca’s Furry Friends Feline Adoption Center to be Housed in New, 14,380-Square-Foot Second Floor Facility
UNIONDALE, NEW YORK — Sahn Ward Coschignano, PLLC has announced that Michael Sahn, the Firm’s Managing Partner, and Jason Horowitz, a Partner with the Firm, successfully represented the North Shore Animal League before the Town of North Hempstead for construction of a second-story addition and complete renovation of its existing animal shelter building on Davis Avenue in Port Washington.
The project consisted of applications to both the Town’s Zoning Board of Appeals and the Town Board. On October 5, 2016, the Firm successfully obtained the necessary zoning variances from the Zoning Board of Appeals. The Town Board then unanimously granted site plan approval for the project on February 28, 2017.
The proposed second-floor facility — which will be named Bianca’s Furry Friends Feline Adoption Center — will encompass 14,380 square feet and will feature exam rooms, a Feline Behavior Department, grooming facilities, a kitten adoption facility, an around-the-clock nursery, surgical suite and a recovery room. In addition, the all-feline center will feature a solely cage-free environment.
Since 1944, the North Shore Animal League is the world’s largest no-kill rescue and adoption organization. The group has saved the lives of more than 1 million dogs, cats, puppies and kittens at risk of euthanasia. Through its many innovative programs, the North Shore Animal League reaches across the country to rescue animals from overcrowded shelters, unwanted litters, puppy mills, natural disasters and other emergencies and finds them permanent, loving homes.
“We are pleased to represent the North Shore Animal League in this new, state-of-the-art project,” Mr. Sahn said. “It is an honor to be part of the organization’s continued efforts to fulfill its mission to care for and protect animals.”
