Since 2005, the Mayor's Alliance for NYC's Animals' fleet of transport vans known as Wheels of Hope has carried more than 25,000 dogs and cats from Animal Care & Control of NYC (AC&C) to other Alliance Participating Organizations — no-kill, non-profit shelters and rescue groups with the resources to find them new homes.
The New York City Feral Cat Initiative is a program of the Mayor's Alliance for NYC's Animals that is committed to solving NYC's feral cat overpopulation crisis through the humane, non-lethal method of Trap-Neuter-Return, or TNR for short.
Administered by the Mayor's Alliance for NYC's Animals, the Picasso Veterinary Fund pays for lifesaving medical treatment for sick and injured animals transferred from Animal Care & Control of NYC (AC&C) to other Alliance Participating Organizations for adoption.
The Mayor's Alliance for NYC's Animals created the Helping Pets and People in Crisis pilot program in response to the many requests we receive from people facing heartbreaking separation from their pets during times of crisis. By collaborating with traditional social services, the program attempts to provide assistance to women, men, and children fleeing domestic violence; seniors requiring medical care outside of their home; and families facing eviction or other temporary setbacks.
