Discover the many ways you can support the Mayor’s Alliance for NYC’s Animals, NYC-area animal shelters and rescue groups, and animal welfare efforts in NYC and beyond.

Animal Shelters & Rescue Groups

New York City area animal shelters and rescue groups take in dogs and cats (and some take in other animals, such as rabbits, exotics, and birds) from the public, and/or pull animals from Animal Care Centers of NYC (ACC). Each organization has an active adoption program to find homes for the animals in their care.

About Us

The Mayor’s Alliance for NYC’s Animals is a 501(c)(3) non-profit charity, founded in 2003. We strive to be a source of information for pet owners seeking services and resources to care for their pets, and for anyone looking to help improve the lives of NYC’s animals. Our goal is to help New Yorkers find the information and resources they need to give their animal companions and all New York City animals their best lives possible!

Your support helps us in our mission to provide valuable information about resources and services to pet owners, potential pet owners, community cat caregivers, rescue groups and shelters, and people throughout New York City who care about NYC’s animals.
