Help Orphaned Animals!

Rescue Groups Need Adopters, Foster Homes and Donations



Small animal rescue organizations around the city have been working nonstop to rescue and care for animals affected by the WTC events. Groups and individuals have been putting forth tremendous effort—coordinating calls from people reporting abandoned animals and offering to foster animals, going into people’s homes and neighborhoods and retrieving the animals, and caring for and adopting out rescued animals. Several groups are focussing on taking animals from the city’s shelter system, the Center for Animal Care and Control (CACC), to ease the overcrowding and to prevent them from being euthanized.

In order to continue their work, animal rescue organizations need monetary donations to pay for vet bills and supplies, donations of food and carriers, and committed adopters and fosterers. Send tax-deductible donations to the following addresses or contact the organizations for other ways to help:
