New Mobile Adoption Center Planned for the Bronx!

AC&C is on its way to securing a second Mobile Adoption Center, this one dedicated to bringing pets to people in the Bronx! The vehicle, and staffing for it, will be made possible through a $250,000 grant secured by State Senator Jeff Klein in this year’s state budget. The addition of this Mobile Adoption Center will enable AC&C to promote pet adoptions to even more homes throughout the Bronx.

Senator Klein made the announcement on August 17 at the Riverdale Children’s Musical Festival in Seton Park. Cats and dogs were available for adoption on the premises, via AC&C’s existing Mobile Adoption Center, which was generously funded by the ASPCA and FENWICK KEATS Real Estate.

STAR Spotlight: Jax

When an AC&C Field officer responded to a call about an injured dog last month, he arrived on the scene to find a tiny Chihuahua trapped under a pile of debris behind a car wash. Cody was able to rescue the small dog and rushed him to an AC&C Care Center.

Thanks to our Special Treatment and Recovery (STAR) Fund, Jax was able to undergo the surgery he needed. Your gift today can help us treat more animals through the STAR Fund. Read more >>

It's Wishlist Wednesday

Looking for more ways to help? Now you can...every Wednesday. AC&C has launched Wishlist Wednesday! Every week we ask for different things that our animals could really use. In our first week, we asked for Varsity Balls for our pups to push around outside and get some much needed exercise. In our second week, we asked for cat toys. And look what we received (pictured below)! THANK YOU to our donors!

This week, we are asking for your help in purchasing sleeper crate pads to keep our pets snuggly when they rest. Pads for both dogs and cats are greatly appreciated. They can be mailed directly to:

Animal Care & Control of NYC
11 Park Place, Suite 805
New York, NY 10007
Attn: Development Department

We thank you in advance!

Check us out on Facebook next Wednesday to see what is on the list!
