Since 2005, the Mayor’s Alliance for NYC’s Animals has transported 80,000 cats and dogs to partner rescue groups, adoptive and foster homes, spay/neuter appointments, and veterinary providers with our Wheels of Hope transport program. Our six transport vans run seven days a week, 52 weeks a year, to help NYC’s shelter pets and feral and stray community cats. This month, we are bringing you stories of organizations and individuals who are saving the lives of animals in New York City with the help of our Wheels of Hope. We hope you enjoy these Wheels of Hope: Tales from the Road!
Kate Kober has been fostering shelter dogs for more than three years. For the last year or so, all the dogs she has fostered, beginning with Old Fezziwig, who came to her on Christmas Eve, have come from Animal Care & Control of NYC. And, Fezzi, handsome Axl, and all the rest have been brought to her home in Pennsylvania by the Mayor’s Alliance of NYC’s Animals Wheels of Hope transport program.
“The program makes rescue partner transport such a breeze,” says Kate. “Wheels of Hope eliminates the initial hassle of figuring out how and where to get a dog from. It is truly a great help.”
Keep the Wheels Turning for NYC’s Animals!
Our current Mayor’s Alliance for NYC’s Animals Wheels of Hope fleet has driven a combined 1,415,198 life-saving miles! Our oldest transport vans each have now logged more than 300,000 miles, and our maintenance costs continue to rise with each vehicle’s mileage. In order to sustain the incredible pace we have set for NYC’s animals, we now are in need of a new Wheels of Hope transport van.
This month, as we race to help even more animals find homes for the new year, please join our campaign to keep the Wheels of Hope reliably turning in 2015 and beyond. Your tax-deductible donation will help us continue to help others save precious lives and bring hope to the littlest New Yorkers in the new year. Donate now at http://bit.ly/TurnWheels.
