If you were separated from your pet during Hurricane Sandy, there is a chance your dog or cat is under the care of the ASPCA at our Emergency Boarding Facility in Brooklyn. We’ve partnered with Animal Care & Control of NYC (AC&C) to help pets displaced by Hurricane Sandy find their homes. Please check the lost dog database and lost cat database for photos and details about each animal at the shelter. Additional pets are listed in the AC&C Found Pets Database.
Got a sec? We could really use your help. This week, we launched a new holiday video focusing on puppy mills and why you should never, ever shop at a pet store that sells puppies. You see, most pet store puppies come from puppy mills—you know, those large-scale breeding operations where dogs live in horrible conditions and never receive love. Well, every time you buy anything from a pet store that sells puppies, you’re actually supporting this very cruel industry.
We think our video has a really great message and we’d love for it to go viral. That’s where you come in. After you watch our “Puppies Are Not Toys” video, please share it with your friends on Facebook and Twitter, and kindly ask them to share it, too. Be sure to use the hashtag #NotAToy. We’re counting on your help to reach millions of people with this important message.
