Lots of people in NYC and also lots of pets, some safely at home, some lost, injured or badly treated and some feral.
The NYC Mayor’s Alliance Animal Alliance, has lots of programs to help animals, some of them ongoing, some upcoming one day intitiatives.
First up the Pets Hackathon on Feb 23 to create apps for pet owners that help them look after their pets. to be held at New York’s Soho Grand Hotel, go along and programme to your heart’s content for this good cause.
Then’s there’s the Free Vetinary Care available Feb 24 and March 10 for Staten Island pets still suffering from the effects of Hurricane Sandy.
An ongoing program is the Wheels of Hope, featured in the video, which transports animals of all kinds [that can fit for in a van]. The clip shows a heart warming example of 2 pets being taken to new homes.
