Help dreams come true for the shelter dogs of Animal Care & Control of New York City

This spring, help the dogs of AC&C by donating a Kong by March 31, 2011.

AC&C of NYC is a private 501c3 non-profit organization that contracts with New York City for animal control services. Each year, AC&C takes in thousands of dogs. Those not adopted are simply euthanized, sometimes within a matter of days.

Dogs residing at AC&C experience stress from many things including social isolation, barren environments, large numbers of other animals, noise, lack of exercise and boredom.

Your gift of a Kong will help:
  • Reduce anxiety and stress.
  • Stimulate the mind while providing a tasty distraction
  • Provide a durable toy/treat dispenser
  • Deter destructive behavior
The presence of toys in kennels has shown to increase adoption rates.

Mail Kongs to:

Miriam Bouchma

3 Times Square

11th Floor

New York, NY 10036

Great article, Do you have a link for donations for the dogs?

Paul - you can follow our progress on our facebook page. Kongs are gratefully received at the address above (as we are a meetup group, we are only accepting Kongs, not cash. Animal Care & Control is in full support of our drive, and will provide a receipt to anyone requesting one).
