The water was reinstated to the cat sanctuary at Southpoint Park!
First and foremost, I want to extend my heartfelt thanks and warmest profound gratitude on
behalf of both the Wildlife Freedom Foundation, and myself, to the entire community of Roosevelt
Island and to the 3,756 people who signed our petition to turn the water back on. Some of you campaigned tirelessly to have the water reinstated at the cat sanctuary in Southpoint Park. Magnificent!

My special appreciation goes to the Brownies/Juniors Girl Scout Troop 3536 for their
passionate help and enthusiasm in circulating the petition. Their amazing leader,
DiMaura Cole, stood for interminable hours in the hot sun on Roosevelt Island Day to
collect signatures. Thank you so much!
The Wildlife Freedom Foundation and its volunteers are a vital part of this community and
words cannot express how grateful we are to the Roosevelt Island Residents Association (RIRA) for their help, guidance, and support during the water shut off time.
Thank you once again; we want you to know that we and especially our beloved cats appreciated
your support and that the cats continue to keep up the good work controlling the rodent population.
