How You Can Help

There are lots of ways you can support the Mayor's Alliance for NYC's Animals and NYC-area animal shelters and rescue groups.

Donate Today

The Mayor's Alliance for NYC's Animals is a 501(c)(3) non-profit charity that works with more than 150 partner rescue groups and shelters to offer important programs and services that save the lives of NYC's homeless animals. Our collaboration has succeeded in saving more than 330,000 lives since 2003.We are supported entirely by donations from foundations, corporations, and individuals and receive no government funding. With your help, we remain committed to transforming New York City into a community where no dogs or cats of reasonable health and temperament will be killed merely because they do not have homes.

Volunteer

Volunteers play a critical role in saving the lives of homeless pets and improving conditions for NYC's community cats. We want to help you find a way to volunteer that offers you an experience that you can both enjoy and feel is making a difference. There are many ways you can help!

Foster an Animal

Foster volunteers provide temporary care for dogs, cats, or rabbits in their homes, offering these pets much-appreciated time in a real home setting instead of a shelter or boarding facility while they await adoption. Most animal shelters and rescue groups are always looking for committed and reliable foster volunteers to care for animals in their homes while they await permanent homes. In fact, many rescue groups rely exclusively on volunteer foster homes because they do not have a shelter to house their animals.

Donate Supplies

The rescue groups and shelters that participate in the Mayor's Alliance for NYC's Animals appreciate donations of dog and cat food, treats, toys, collars, beds, leashes, bowls, cleaning supplies, towels and blankets, veterinary supplies, office supplies and equipment, gift cards, and other items.

Make Cage Comforters

Cage comforters are simple, small quilts placed in the cages of shelter animals. Not only do they make the cage a more comfortable place to be, but they also can help to increase an animal's chances of adoption by reducing stress and allowing potential adopters to more easily see the animals as part of their homes and lives. Anyone who can thread a needle can create a cage comforter and help get a Little New Yorker adopted!
