"Throw us a bone!" a Queens animal shelter begs.

Bobbi and the Strays, home currently to 23 cats and 25 dogs, is looking for a new building because its Glendale shelter for large dogs is slated for demolition.

The animal shelter currently has two buildings: one at Atlas Mall in Queens for the cats and smaller dogs, and a building near the airport for the larger dogs.

The nonprofit no-kill animal rescue organization also provides educational programs to schools and the community, educating children and adults on responsible pet ownership and organizing spay/neuter services and events.
