Mayor's Alliance for NYC's Animals

The Mayor’s Alliance for NYC’s Animals is committed to seeing the day when no New York City dog or cat of reasonable health and temperament is killed merely because he or she does not have a home. The Mayor’s Alliance for NYC’s Animals is a 501(c)(3) non-profit charity founded in 2003 with the goal of transforming New York City into a community where no dogs or cats of reasonable health and temperament will be killed merely because they do not have homes. Before the Alliance’s founding, the live release rate at NYC’s municipal shelter system, Animal Care Centers of NYC (ACC), was under 25%.

Driven by our ten-year strategic plan that outlined the organization’s core objectives and key initiatives, the Alliance created strategic programs and services aimed at delivering on our goal of creating a no-kill community in NYC. These programs and services, coupled with the work and dedication of the more than 150 Alliance Participating Organizations that collaborated in our mission, achieved our goal. In 2019, ACC’s live release rate is above 90% for the third consecutive year.

Having accomplished our mission to make New York City a no-kill city, the Alliance reevaluated our programming to adapt to the evolving landscape of animal welfare in NYC. In 2019, we thoughtfully and carefully transitioned our key programming — Wheels of Hope, Adoptapalooza, and the New York City Feral Cat Initiative — to other nonprofit Alliance partners.

The Alliance will continue to think critically about our role in NYC as the capacity-builder, as the connector, and as a hub for NYC animal welfare, and how to best transition those roles in the future. Going forward, the Alliance will maintain our website to serve as a self-help desk for NYC residents who want to help animals, or who need help; continue to provide limited services, resources, and guidance to local animal rescue groups and shelters; continue to work with the City, thinking critically and strategically to address animal welfare-related issues in our community; and will continue to act as a consultant, advisor, and mentor in municipalities nationally.
