Hundreds of dogs, cats, and rabbits spend their days alone in a cage at our City shelter, Animal Care Centers of NYC. We wish that all of them could find their forever homes and enjoy the love and comfort of being part of a family.  

If you don’t have the time or space to adopt another pet right now, you can still make a big difference in the lives of the animals left behind. 

Your gift of $25will purchase 5 tough toysfor our heavy chewers to enjoy. Chewing helps to reduce the stress of shelter living and occupies a dog’s time while he waits to be adopted.

A gift of $50 will provide 2 boxes of catnip mice, allowing dozens of cats to express their natural hunting behaviors. This relieves boredom AND their antics attract adopters helping them to find homes.

For $100, you can fund the purchase of two heating padsfor use by underage kittens (kittens younger than 3 weeks old cannot maintain their own body temperature). This is life-saving equipment and much needed during kitten season.

For a generous gift of $500, you can give an entire gift basket of toys and treatsto the cats, dogs and rabbits living in the shelter. Chew toys, rawhides, catnip mice, lattice bell toys, rabbit hay treats, and more! A great gift that will brighten the lives of animals throughout the shelter!

And, for a super generous gift of $1,000, you can fund anew cat condo. The new condos are designed to give the cats a cozy sleeping cubby, a private litter box nook and a generous play area. These are a big improvement over the traditional cages. The cats will thank you! 

ANY amount is welcome.

Even a $5 donation can bring a shelter pet some joy and stimulation. This can improve their health and behavior assessment, which increases their chances of adoption.

No gift is too small, because it all adds up. If everyone gave SOMETHING, so many animals would be helped.


And, if you have the time and space to foster a cat or dog on a short-term basis, please let us know and we will hook you up with ACC’s Foster Department.
