Queens —

Animal Care Center CEO Risa Weinstock wants to build an animal shelter in Queens Community District 5, but she needed to win over the local community board.

CB5 members and other residents peppered her with questions in the auditorium of the Knockdown Center in Maspeth on Sept. 4.

“We’re not trying to steal any business from the community,” Weinstock told the attendees, who had a litany of concerns about a $60 million facility designed to house more than 150 animals.
