You Helped Us Say YES to Orphaned Kittens, Nicky & Norman!


Every day, the Mayor’s Alliance for NYC’s Animals works tirelessly to save NYC’s most at-risk animals. Thanks to you, since our founding in 2003, we’ve been able to save more than 300,000 homeless pets.

We recently were able to help Nicky and Norman, two orphaned kittens, get into a loving home after a rough start. Norman was found by a Good Samaritan, tied in a trash bag at a train station in the Bronx, while Nicky was found emaciated, covered in fleas, and cold in a Queens back yard. Both kittens were under seven days old. Without your help, Nicky and Norman wouldn’t have made it. Too young and too sickly, even if they had made it into a city shelter, their chances of survival would have been slim.

Your support ensured that our Wheels of Hope van could give these bottle baby “brothers” a life-saving ride to their foster home, where they would be fed every two hours around the clock and given lots of TLC as they grew up together.

After several weeks of foster care, when they were able to eat on their own, our Wheels of Hope van brought them to their forever home in Putnam County, New York. Today, they are happy, healthy young cats.

Every day, your support makes stories like Nicky and Norman’s possible.
