The place for pets, and their owners

Find free, low-cost pet care


P&C’s friends at the Mayor’s Alliance for NYC’s Animals sent out this info to help cash-strapped pet owners find free or low-cost care options for their pets.
The alliance has developed an online micro-site that offers pet owners an information resource for these pet care options: www.animalalliancenyc.org./services/help.htm.

The micro-site is located on the Mayor’s Alliance for NYC’s Animals’ Web site, and provides information about:
• Financial assistance and low-cost options for veterinary care
• Low-cost spay/neuter programs & clinics
• Low-cost micro-chipping
• Food banks that provide pet food
• Low-cost temporary pet boarding & foster care

As new resources become available, they will be added to the site.

“It’s important that people understand that there are resources available to help them continue to care for their pets properly during these tough economic times, and allow them to keep their pets at home instead of surrendering them to a shelter because they feel they can no longer afford to keep them,” states Jane Hoffman, president of the Mayor’s Alliance for NYC’s Animals.

Jane, I hope people take you up on this service.
