The New Hope program is ACC's proactive community initiative aimed at finding homes for New York City's homeless pet population. To accomplish this, ACC establishes and cultivates mutually beneficial and productive relationships with cat, dog, rabbit and exotic animal placement organizations that assist and partner with ACC in placing animals, many of which require specialized medical care or behavior training.
New Hope partners take ownership of ACC animals and care for them in shelters, foster homes, boarding facilities and/or their own private facilities prior to placing them in permanent homes through their own adoption process.
The New Hope placement process is truly an interdepartmental effort involving all members of the ACC team. ACC employees participate in the daily activities necessary to care for the animals and prepare them for placement in permanent homes or with New Hope partners.
