Through creating a corporate partnership with ACC, the only open admission shelter in NYC working on the front line taking in more than 25,000 animals every year,  your support will not only provide critical resources needed to care for and find loving homes for NYC’s homeless animals but will also support our innovative in shelter and community outreach programs which rely on private funding.  Your support will enable us to continue to achieve record placement rates for our animals within the industry.

By partnering with ACC, you can appeal to the vast number of animal lovers, offer your consumers the opportunity to help the homeless animals of NYC, and achieve your business and charitable goals.

Corporate support can take many different forms, so please reach out to us at corporatepartnerships@nycacc.org if you would like to get involved and we will work together with you to create the optimal corporate partnership for you.

Here are just some of the corporate opportunities that are available:

Corporate Grants...

As ACC takes in more than 25,000 animals every year, we have a variety of innovative programs designed to address the overall needs of our animals and provide critical support to our community.  Funding is essential in ensuring our ability to continue our important work.   We have targeted funds to support the specific needs of our animals and the community and we are always developing new initiatives to continually advance our best practices in care, placement, and overall support.  Corporate grants are essential in providing financial support for our programs and funds such as these, among others.  Reach out to us and we will work with you on a grant package tailored to your goals and needs. 

Community Pets Program

The Community Pets Program is a compassionate outreach initiative of Animal Care Centers of NYC (ACC). Our goal is simple: keep pets together with their human families by providing access to necessary health and welfare resources for pets. ACC’s Community Pets Program works within Bronx and Queens neighborhoods to identify pet owners in need and assist them, as much as possible, in keeping their pets. Free vaccination clinic events, free dog training classes, and free spay/neuter services are just some of what ACC offers.  Here is a link where you can learn more about this program https://www.nycacc.org/services/community-pets-program.  Your corporate grant will enable us to build on the success of our community pets program, and increase the level of support that we are able to offer to so many individuals in need and enable us to expand our reach in NYC even further.

Star Fund

As ACC is the only open admission shelter in NYC, thousands of animals requiring extensive medical and/or surgical care come to us for help.  Our STAR (Special Treatment & Recovery) Fund provides the critical financial resources needed for medical care that only a specialized facility can provide.  Your corporate grant will help ACC ensure that animals in need of urgent medical care have the resources they need to be on the road to recovery.

The Petco Foundation is a great partner and generous supporter of our strategic initiatives. Since 2016, their critical funding has supported our Canine Enrichment Program, one of the first such programs at an open admission shelter in the country.  The program focuses on behavior training and playgroups, enabling our dogs to play and socialize with one another, providing untold behavioral and health benefits while increasing adoptability as well.  We are very thankful to the Petco Foundation for their continued support.

Corporate Sponsorships...

Corporate Sponsors provide support in many ways and contribute greatly to our mission and overall needs of our organization.  Corporate Sponsorships can take many forms, and can be designed to the needs and goals of your organization.  Opportunities can include quarterly and annual sponsorship with varying levels of support.  You can also sponsor our gala events, with the opportunity to purchase tickets for our events and donate your company’s products or services as auction items.  With event sponsorship your corporate logo will be prominently featured on our marketing and social media promotion for our events.  (need photo from gala)

The ASPCA is one of our most important partners providing critical support to us in many diverse areas.  The ASPCA is also a leading sponsor for our yearly gala, the Boroughbred  Ball, as well as our other key events, our Spring Fling and Pit Bowl.  These fundraising events provide critical funding for ACC’s programs all year long.

Cause-Related Partnerships...

Through a cause related partnership with ACC, you can help to raise awareness of our cause and of homeless animals in general, expand your company’s reach through the vast appeal of animals, and offer your consumers the opportunity to help the homeless animals of NYC.   We are always seeking more ways to spread the word about us and our animals, so reach out to us if you would like to discuss cause related partnership opportunities.

Matching Gift/Volunteer Grant Programs...

You can provide your employees with a matching gift program, in which you match employee contributions at a rate of 1:1, 2:1 or even greater.  You can also offer a volunteer grant program, in which the level of your grant is commensurate with your employees’ volunteer service.  If you are a volunteer, verify with your employer to find out if your company participates in either of these kinds of programs, and they can provide you with information on how to take advantage of these benefits, as well as any forms you may need to complete in order to participate.

Bloomberg Philanthropies provides generous financial contributions to us through their employee volunteer grant and matching gift programs and are a key sponsor for our gala events as well.  We are grateful for our continued partnership with Bloomberg Philanthropies.

Virtual Tours of our Care Centers

Your team can attend a virtual tour of one of our care centers and have the opportunity to see our amazing animals who are available for adoption, and get an exciting behind the scenes look into the day to day activities at our shelters.  During our virtual event we will also provide a presentation on ACC and all of the ways you can get involved with our cause to help the homeless animals of NYC.

On-site Corporate Outreach Events...

We offer on-site outreach tabling events, where we come to your office to speak with your team, provide an overview of ACC and all the ways to get involved, including volunteering, fostering, adopting, and donating. We often bring animals who are available for adoption to our events, so your team has the opportunity to meet and foster or adopt some of our amazing animals on site.

We have a suggested donation for these on-site events and will work together with you to build the event around your schedule and needs.

The Blackstone Group participates regularly in our corporate volunteer program and we are grateful for their generous financial contributions.  We always enjoy working with their team when they come to volunteer at our shelter, and we are appreciative of the time they spend socializing with our animals and for all the help they provide during their visits.  We are looking forward to our continued partnership with the Blackstone Group.

Outreach Volunteering...

We offer outreach volunteer opportunities to corporate groups.

We have a suggested donation for these events.

Host an On-Site Outreach or Mobile Adoption Event...

On hold for now due to COVID-19, will update this page as soon as available.

Every week we hold outreach tabling and mobile adoption events throughout NYC, where we engage with the public to spread the word about ACC, recruit more adopters, fosters, volunteers and donors.  We are always seeking new venues and locations to hold our events so we can expand our reach in NYC even further, so hosting an ACC event at your location is an incredible way to help.  Our outreach tabling and mobile adoption events are generally held outside where we can speak with the public, but depending upon the particular venue some events are held inside as well. 

Birch Coffee is a generous host for many of our outreach and mobile adoption events at their coffee shops throughout NYC, enabling us to expand our outreach further helping to raise awareness and find loving homes for many of our animals.  Birch Coffee donates their products for our fundraising events and has even created a special “Bully Blend” brew whose proceeds directly benefit ACC and the cause of pit bulls in general.  Always looking for more ways to help our animals and our cause, we are looking forward to even greater collaboration with Birch Coffee in the future and we are thankful for their partnership and continued support.
