Citywide Events

Low-cost or Free Spay and Neuter
The ASPCA's Free and low-cost mobile spay and neuter van travels throughout the five boroughs in every neighborhood-right to your door! (And if you have a pit bull, pit-bull mix or certain large-breed dogs it's FREE!) Low income pet owners in NYC's 5 boroughs with proof of public assistance such as welfare, Medicaid, Medicare, Supplemental Security Income (SSI), disability, food stamps, TANF (Temporary Assistance for Needy Families) or public housing qualify for FREE spay/neuter services for their cat or dog.

Animal Relief Fund (ARF)
What started out as a simple act of kindness by the already-kind Yorkville Food Pantry in November 2008 with help from attorney Susan Kaufman has now evolved into its own organization. ARF's mission is keeping pets with their families and reduce the number of abandoned dogs and cats by distributing pet food to local food pantries which serve New York families in need. ARF has now partnered with several pet stores throughout the New York area where food donations are accepted on an ongoing basis.
For donation locations please visit www.arf-ny.org. If you or a friend need help please don't be shy, visit www.arf-ny.org/where.html.
