A large crowd is expected tonight at a public hearing to discuss

amending Smithtown's town code as it relates to animal hospices,

animal boarding and kennels - a move that could effectively shut down

Angel's Gate, an animal hospice in Fort Salonga.

The nonprofit organization has received national and international

attention since a Newsday story in April about tensions between the

hospice and its Josephine Lane neighbors, who insist it should not be

located in a residential neighborhood. They complain about volunteers

coming and going from the home, excessive garbage and noise from more

than 200 disabled or dying animals at the hospice.
