VOTE: NYC Animal Welfare Leader Up for Unite4:Good Award

Friday, February 14, 2014 - 3:00pm

Every day the ASPCA partners with committed individuals and groups working tirelessly to save the lives of more animals in need. Many of these heroes work behind the scenes, rarely getting the acknowledgement they deserve.

Today, however, we have a unique opportunity to not only publicly thank and recognize one of our closest partners, Jane Hoffman of the Mayor’s Alliance, but also help her organization win a $50,000 grant. Earlier this year, we nominated Jane, founding member of the Mayor's Alliance for NYC's Animals and current president and chair of their board of directors, for a unite4:good humanitarian award. We were thrilled to learn recently that she was named a finalist, and as such will receive at least a $25,000 grant, but she is now relying on public votes to receive the top honor, the Unite4:Humanity Inspiration Award.

We nominated Jane because we are keenly aware of her hard work and unwavering dedication to the Mayor’s Alliance, which was established to apply creative, targeted solutions to NYC’s homeless animal crisis. Under Jane’s leadership, the Alliance is making strong headway on increasing adoptions; increasing access to spay/neuter, micro-chipping, and dog licensing services; and increasing awareness of animal shelters and rescue groups and the animals in their care. In other words, if New York animals are our best friends, Jane Hoffman may be theirs.

To vote for Jane, please visit unite4:good’s website. Voting ends on February 19!
