New York City Cats and Dogs Go Online!
New York, NY Friday, November 7, 2003 On November 7, 2003, the Mayor's Alliance for NYC's Animals will be joining New York Animal Care and Control in introducing New Yorkers to some exciting new computer technology called Pet-Ark that will revolutionize the marketing and placement of NYC cats and dogs in shelters.
"New Yorkers will soon be able to search for the right new 'four-footed family member' via our kiosks, which I think of as 'adoption ATMs.'" said Jane Hoffman, President of the Mayor's Alliance for NYC's Animals. "It is the cutting edge way to bring pets to people." The kiosks have been placed in the shelters and receiving centers of New York City Animal Care and Control and at the ASPCA, Animal Haven, BARC, and the Humane Society of New York. Plans are underway to place kiosks at locations throughout the City in the very near future so that New Yorkers can "meet" the great cats and dogs in animal shelters who are waiting to go to a new home.
New York City Animal Care and Control is a member of the Mayor's Alliance for NYC's Animals, a coalition of over 50 animal rescue groups and shelters, working with the City of New York, to find a great home for every cat and dog in NYC who needs one. To achieve that goal, the Mayor's Alliance, a 501(c)(3) not-for–profit corporation, has formed a public-private partnership with the City of New York to develop creative solutions to deal with issues of animal care and control in New York City.
