Will You Help Get NYC’s Shelter Pets Out of the Cage?


(Photo by Krista Menzel)Want to Do Good This Holiday Season?

This year, we are asking you to rally your friends, family, and networks to support the life-saving work of the Mayor’s Alliance for NYC’s Animals. By becoming a fundraiser in our Out of the Cage Challenge, you not only will help New York City’s shelter pets, but also give your friends the opportunity to feel good about doing good this holiday season.

Starting a fundraiser is easy to do, and it’s fun! We’ll even give you all the tools you’ll need to make a difference. With your help, we can move NYC’s homeless pets out of the cage and save their lives.

What Is the Out of the Cage Challenge?

We’re launching the Out of the Cage Challenge, a new campaign to raise critical funds to prevent the euthanasia of homeless shelter pets in New York City. Every year, approximately 30,000 pets are surrendered to Animal Care Centers of NYC (ACC). Due to constant influx, overcrowding, and limited resources, unless these pets are adopted or moved to no-kill animal rescue groups to await new homes, they are at risk for illness and euthanasia. That’s where the Alliance’s Wheels of Hope program comes in, providing life-saving transportation for these animals out of the cage and into new lives.

By participating in the Out of the Cage Challenge, you will give thousands of homeless pets a second chance by helping them get out of the cage. Your support will directly impact their lives by providing the Mayor’s Alliance for NYC’s Animals with the funding necessary to transport these animals to new homes or no-kill animal rescue organizations via our Wheels of Hope vans. This holiday season, we want you to be a part of this life-saving effort!
