Alliance Participating Organization (APO) Resource Center
As working members of the Mayor's Alliance for NYC's Animals, Alliance Participating Organizations (APOs) take in dogs and cats (and sometimes other animals) from the public, and/or pull animals from Animal Care & Control of NYC (AC&C) as New Hope Partners. Each APO has an active adoption program to place the animals they rescue into new homes. Some APOs may also have spay/neuter programs, and some may also help stem the overpopulation of feral cats in NYC through Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) programs.
APOs range in size from the ASPCA (a founding member of the Alliance) to all-volunteer, neighborhood-based rescue groups.
If your organization meets the above requirements, you are welcome to apply to become an APO.
