The New York Pet Fashion Show kicked off Westminster Weekend and Fashion Week with glitz, glamour, and fabulous dogs showcasing top pet clothing designers and some of New York City's wonderful shelter dogs awaiting their forever homes.
Since feral cats need winter shelters, who better to design and build them than NYC's architectural community? Creative outdoor winter shelters were displayed for the public at the event, and then donated to community cat caretakers around the city.
2012 was Year Eight of our Maddie's® Pet Rescue Project in NYC. Persevering in the shadow of a slowly recovering economy, continued budget constraints at AC&C, and the debilitating effects of Super Storm Sandy, we continued to press forward toward our goal of becoming a no-kill community.
You can help homeless dogs and cats find permanent, loving homes by supporting the programs that aid 150+ rescue groups and shelters in our city. Donations of all amounts are lifesaving for the nearly 29,000 dogs and cats entering our city shelters each year.
Our volunteers are a critical part of our success, and essential to achieving our collective goal: a "no-kill" New York City — a city that our dogs and cats can be proud to call home. Your time, energy, and skills are lifesaving for the nearly 29,000 dogs and cats who enter our city shelters each year.
Having your pets microchipped is one of the best ways to increase the chance that, if your pet becomes lost or stolen and winds up at an animal shelter or veterinary office, he or she can be returned to you.
Licensing contributes to animal control and the protection of the public health. The law requires that all owned dogs be licensed with the dog license tag attached to his/her collar while in public. Dog owners may be fined for violation of these laws.
