The Mayor’s Alliance for NYC Animals: What’s Up This Month!

February 10, 2016

Tomorrow evening at the Hotel Pennsylvania, the Mayor’s Alliance for NYC Animals is hosting a furry fashion show! The theme is, hilariously, the 1980s. This isn’t the first fashion show the Alliance for NYC Animals has thrown, and it hopefully wont be the last. The Mayor’s Alliance does far more than just fundraisers! The money raised goes towards many different promotions of animal safety in the city, including many rescues and adoption projects. Now that’s a cause we can all fetch.

This February, the Alliance is hosting and sponsoring several events, including one yesterday that taught willing participants how to bottle-feed stray kittens. And the event was free! But there are other events happening this month that we haven’t missed yet:

Every Sunday in Carl Schurz Park, Zani’s Furry Friends Adoptions

This February, the Mayor’s Alliance’s animal van will be out in Carl Shurz Park, teamed with Zani’s Furry Friends to bring adoption opportunities. ZFF is a non-profit that rescues animals from over crowded shelters, saving them from euthanasia and making it easy for pets to find new homes. The van will be in the park Sundays, 11:00AM to 3:00PM! Check out Zani’s Furry Friends website for more info!

Trap-Neuter-Return Certifications, and Colony Care

Here at NYC Pooch, we care about all of New York’s animals. Stray cats are all over the city, and now the Mayor’s Alliance for NYC’s Animals is offering a free certification workshop at the Queen’s Library, and the ASPCA. The practice involves safely taking stray cats to be neutered, vaccinated for rabies and other medical attention, before being released back where it was found. It helps keep the kitties healthy and safe, and the populations down. There are two remaining workshops this month:
Saturday the 20th at the Queens Library, Arverne Branch. 11:00AM-2:00PM.
Sunday the 21st at the ASPCA Midtown Administrative Offices, 7th Floor. 11:00AM-2:00PM.
As mentioned, the workshop is free! You just need to be 18 or older with a valid ID.

But Let’s Not Forget the Fashion…

This year’s show begins at 6:00pm, and boasts a bold display of shows including the main walk, a couture fashion spotlight, a costume contest, and of course award ceremonies! Entry into the catwalk for you and your pooch is $95, but spectators can enjoy the show starting at $50. Check it out!

There are plenty more events every month in and around the city. The Mayor’s Alliance for NYC Animals keeps monthly calendars you can keep updated with. Everything from adoptions to budget-friendly vet care!
