Miles For Paws

Join the Race to Save NYC's Homeless Animals!

Miles For Paws is the animal welfare charity fitness team of the Mayor's Alliance for NYC's Animals — and we need your help to increase awareness and fundraise to benefit the littlest New Yorkers!

If you love animals and physical activity, then Miles For Paws is your team!

Our team is comprised of athletes with all levels of experience and interest in a range of sporting activities. As a Pack Member, you are welcome to participate in races with the group, or choose your own event and participate as an individual representing Miles For Paws.

Miles For Paws is a program of the Mayor's Alliance for NYC's Animals, a 501(c)(3) organization whose mission is to transform New York City into a no-kill community by 2015. In collaboration with more than 150 participating rescue groups and shelters, we have succeeded in saving more than 250,000 lives since 2003. More than three out of four lives entering AC&C were saved in 2012. To learn more about our progress, please view our 2013 Progress Report. While we've made tremendous progress in saving lives, more work is yet to be done, and more lives are yet to be saved. As with many challenges — including races — the last few miles can be the most difficult

In becoming a Pack Member, you can make a difference in the lives of NYC's homeless animals with every mile, avenue, or block you complete. Your efforts and dollars will make a tremendous impact towards reducing euthanasia in NYC. By supporting Miles For Paws, you help us win the race to make NYC into a no-kill community.

How will my support benefit NYC's homeless animals?

When you raise funds for Miles For Paws, you are raising funds for the animals most in need. Our programs are very successful in reducing euthanasia. Our Wheels of Hope program transports thousands of animals each year out of the NYC shelters, bringing them to other rescue groups that place them in forever homes. Our New York City Feral Cat Initiative program is committed to solving NYC's feral cat overpopulation crisis through the humane, non-lethal method of Trap-Neuter-Return, or TNR for short. Through this program, we are able to prevent thousands of homeless cats and kittens from ever entering the shelter system and maintain caretakers for existing feral cat colonies. Our Mayor's Alliance Medical Fund helps to pay for lifesaving veterinary care for homeless animals who are taken in by NYC shelters and cared for until they can be adopted into loving homes.
