How to Become an Alliance Participating Organization (APO)
Thank you for your interest in joining the Mayor's Alliance for NYC's Animals. Before you complete the application, please review the following information.
We are a New York City project.
Before you apply to become an Alliance Participating Organization (APO), you must demonstrate that you are an approved New Hope Partner in good standing with Animal Care & Control of NYC (AC&C), and have been so for at least six months. However, being an approved New Hope Partner does not guarantee that you will be approved as an APO.
AC&C's New Hope Department and the Mayor's Alliance for NYC's Animals are two separate organizations.
APO Application Process
To apply to become an Alliance Participating Organization (APO):
Print and fill out an APO Application.
