New Yorkers: Join Us in Union Square this Sunday!

It’s an exciting time for shelter pets in New York City. This Sunday in Union Square, Animal Care & Control of New York City (AC&C) will unveil its first dedicated Mobile Adoption Center.

The state-of-the-art adoptions vehicle will enable AC&C to bring adoptable animals to previously unreachable New Yorkers throughout the City’s five boroughs. The vehicle was purchased with the help of a $60,000 grant from the ASPCA and a $60,000 donation from Fenwick Keats Real Estate.

AC&C’s three full-service Care Centers in Manhattan, Brooklyn and Staten Island are open for adoptions seven days a week, but its facilities in the Bronx and Queens are Pet Receiving Centers and do not serve adopters. With approximately 30,000 cats, dogs and other animals in need coming to AC&C each year, this new Mobile Adoption Center will play a vital role in increasing adoptions as well as raising awareness of shelter pets in need.

We’re excited to be part of this important initiative for animals in New York City. If you’re in the area, please join us for the AC&C Mobile Adoption Center’s unveiling and a special adoption event this Sunday, February 9 at 11:00 A.M. in the Union Square Park North Plaza (East 17th Street between Broadway and Park Ave.). We hope to see you there!
