Mayor's Alliance for NYC's Animals Announces Partnership with TD Bank to Celebrate 4th Annual "I Love NYC Pets" Month with City-Wide Pet Adoption Events
New York, NY – Wednesday, January 27, 2010 – In February, the Mayor's Alliance for NYC's Animals, a coalition of more than 160 animal rescue groups and shelters working to transform New York City into a no-kill community, will once again shine a spotlight on New York City's homeless pets with its annual month-long pet adoption campaign, "I Love NYC Pets" Month. This year, the Mayor's Alliance is delighted to welcome TD Bank, America's Most Convenient Bank, as the campaign's official sponsor. TD Bank, with more than 75 locations in all five NYC boroughs, will host eight pet adoption events throughout the month of February, featuring dogs and cats for adoption from some of the rescue organizations that comprise the Mayor's Alliance.
To kick-off "I Love NYC Pets" Month and this important partnership, TD Bank will host a morning celebration at its bank location at 42nd Street and Madison Avenue on February 3, 2010. Plus, pet owners are invited to open an account with TD Bank and receive a $25 bonus with the account.
"We're excited that TD Bank is joining us in our efforts to promote pet adoption, and are confident that this partnership will result in an increased number of successful pet adoptions through visible community events," says Jane Hoffman, President of the Mayor's Alliance for NYC's Animals.
TD Bank is one of the 15 largest banks in the U.S., with approximately 23,000 Employees and deep roots in the community dating back more than 150 years. "TD Bank is proud to sponsor 'I Love NYC Pets' Month and help the Mayor's Alliance for NYC's Animals raise awareness about pet adoption," says Brandon C. Williams, Senior Vice President, Retail Banking, New York. "When we do business in an area we truly become part of the community and try to help as much as we can when need arises."
To encourage more pet adoptions during "I Love NYC Pets" Month, Animal Care & Control of New York City (AC&C), an Alliance Participating Organization, will offer extended adoption hours (until 7:30 p.m. every day) at its three locations in Manhattan, Brooklyn, and Staten Island, and will waive adoption fees for cats older than one year.
Not ready to adopt? The Mayor's Alliance for NYC's Animals encourages you to contact an animal shelter or rescue group in your area and find out how you can volunteer, foster a pet, or donate funds or supplies to support their valuable work.
