How You Can Help
There are lots of ways you can support the Mayor's Alliance for NYC's Animals and our Alliance Participating Organizations (APOs).
Before the Mayor's Alliance was formed, 74% of the 35,000+ animals entering AC&C were euthanized, many for lack of space. Today, over 20,000 more dogs and cats are saved in NYC each year and the euthanasia rate is 32.5% of intake. With your help, we are on track to achieve our "no-kill" goal by 2015.
The change we are working to create is larger than any of us alone can achieve. 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.
Foster parents provide temporary care for a dog or cat in their home, offering these pets much-appreciated time in a loving home instead of a shelter or boarding facility. The Mayor's Alliance is always in need of kind, reliable foster caretakers.
If you can walk, run, wheel, swim…hop, skip or jump…you can help us go the distance toward the lifesaving goal of the Mayor's Alliance. Join the Miles For Paws charity fitness team to increase awareness and fundraise to benefit the littlest New Yorkers!
Even if you can't donate, volunteer, or join the Miles For Paws team at this time, there are lots of other ways you can help the Mayor's Alliance help New York City's animals!
