Citywide Events

Saturday, January 23, 2016, 11am-1pm - CANCELLED BECAUSE OF SNOW STORM
ACC Adoption Ambassador Orientation
Location: PACC Headquarters, 11 Park Place, Suite 805 The ACC Adoption Ambassador Program is similar to foster care, but goes a step further. Like Foster parents, Adoption Ambassadors provide temporary homes for select pets, which will be spayed or neutered and given their preliminary vaccinations before arriving in their temporary homes. (All food and supplies needed to care for the pet are provided to you.) But unlike foster families, Ambassadors will help maximize their pets' availability and exposure. Each dog will leave with a bright colored "Adopt Me" vest so that while they're in parks and other pet-friendly venues, the public will see that the pet is looking for a forever home. Adoption Ambassadors are essentially fosters that commit to keeping their foster animal until finding them a permanent home. Adoption Ambassadors seek out potential adopters and ultimately choose an adopter.
Please visit http://nycacc.org/Foster.htm to sign up for an Adoption Ambassador orientation and learn more about how you can help homeless and abandoned animals in NYC.

On-going
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.
