The Mayor’s Alliance will provide valuable information about pet adoption, free- and low-cost spay/neuter services in NYC, microchipping, dog licensing, and more!

Last year, through the efforts of the Mayor’s Alliance and its 160-plus participating shelters and rescue groups (including AC&C), euthanasia at AC&C shelters was reduced to 33 percent, representing a 57 percent decrease in euthanasia since 2003, the first year of operation for the Mayor's Alliance. On a mission to make New York City no-kill by 2015, Jane Hoffman, President of the Mayor’s Alliance for NYC’s Animals, says, “One of the key factors driving down the euthanasia rate here in New York City is an increase in animal adoptions. Adoptapalooza is the kind of community event that is moving us closer to our no-kill goal.”
