"The approval of the Central Pine Barrens Commission is a key and final authority on whether the Kent Animal Shelter may rebuild," noted Pamela Green, Kent Animal Shelter's Executive Director, who is celebrating her 30th year at the helm of the North Fork organization. "The existing structures have reached a critical stage of deterioration to the extent that the shelter may have to cease to exist."

A public hearing held by The Central Pine Barrens Commission on the proposed new facility at the Kent Animal Shelter will take place on Wednesday, March 18th at 2 p.m. at Southampton Town Hall (116 New York 27A, Southampton).

The Calverton-based animal shelter has already prepared building plans as well as gotten approvals from all agencies concerned, with the exception of local elected officials and appointees.

Kent Animal Shelter is asking to supporters to either attend the hearing, sign an online petition (www.change.org) or send a letter of support to:

Central Pine Barrens Joint Planning & Policy Commission
624 Old Country Road
Westhampton Beach, NY 11978

Kent Animal Shelter has been a shining star to anyone interested in rescue of dogs and cats. It is critical that the Pine Baren Commission aprove their request for a new building on their property that has been used as an animal shelter for 47 years. I urge everyone to offer their support in favor of the request to put up a new building. Kent has been there for us, now its our turn to insure this shelter continue its good works on behalf of the dogs and cats on Long Island

The clientele quickly grew and over the years Hampton Luxury liner became the preferred method of transportation to the Hamptons and NYC for many living in NYC and the Hamptons that wanted a comfortable and affordable way to travel back and forth. In 2009, HLL was taken over by Classic Coach and things with the liner didnít change to much for years and the owner there changed the buses to Prevost as opposed to Mercedes Setra Top Class Coaches that have always been a signature of the liner.
