Animal Care & Control is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization that rescues over 43,000 animals every year; that's approximately 350 animals a month. ACC relies heavily on funding from the City of New York but because of the recession, support from the City has been drastically reduced. ACC is running out of food.
There are several ways you can help. ACC is accepting donations of canned dog food, canned cat food, gently used towels and blankets, washable rubber toys and cat litter. If you'd like to donate, here are some of your options:
1. Contact Petropolis, 91 Washington St., NYC, NY (212) 608-2234 if you'd like to purchase food to be donated to ACC. They will take your order over the phone or in person and make sure your purchase gets to ACC.
2. Contact A Tail At A Time at firstname.lastname@example.org.
3. Visit the website www.NYCACC.org to find the shelter nearest you so you can make a delivery of food, blankets, or toys yourself.
4. Bill Moran of C+K Distributors has generously agreed to help us help the animals! C+K is a huge distributor of pet food and supplies for the NYC metro area. In response to this unprecedented emergency, C+K will sell to the public at 5% below wholesale! That is less than what they charge pet stores!
