New York Breed Rescue Network APOs
The New York Breed Rescue Network (NYBRN) is a sub-coalition within the Mayor's Alliance for NYC's Animals of Alliance Participating Organizations (APOs) that have chosen to concentrate on the placement of purebred (or nearly pure) dogs and cats. These groups view puppymills, petshops, and irresponsible breeders as the problem, and believe that by combining their efforts toward a common goal, they will make a real difference.
Join the New York Breed Rescue Network
The New York Breed Rescue Network (NYBRN) is actively recruiting new participants. Any cat or dog breed rescue group that is an Alliance Participating Organization (APO) is eligible to join.

Recruiting, training and retaining volunteers
Evaluation and rehabilitation of animals (particularly "special needs")
Establishing fundraising plans
Shelter liaison and support, particularly concerning Animal Care & Control of NYC (AC&C)
