Feeding Pets of the Homeless
Socially responsible veterinarian hospitals and clinics around the country are collecting pet food from their clients and are partnering with local food banks who then distributes the pet food to the homeless and disadvantaged. Participating clinics/hospitals are listed on the Feeding Pets of the Homeless website at www.PetsofHomeless.com along with the partnering food bank.

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.
For exact times the van will be in your area as well as pre-visit instructions (Spanish and English) visit http://www.aspca.org/pet-care/spayneuter or call 877-SPAY-NYC (877-772-9692).

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, or if you or a friend need help visit www.arf-ny.org.
