THE STORY:

Grandpaw, beloved neighborhood dog, died of illness and old age on June 6, 2013. During the 3 ½ years between his rescue from the New York City shelter system and his passing, the sweet, bumbling, big-hearted boy brought joy to thousands of people. He spent his last weeks touring his favorite places on a cart, being petted and comforted by his friends, and holding his ball.

As charming and loving as Grandpaw was, however, he was extremely fortunate to make it out of a City shelter alive. He was abandoned at an estimated age of 10 years. He was a large, mixed-bully-breed dog, and he was soon sick with “kennel cough.” Were it not for the courage and compassion of the shelter volunteers who protected him, he would have been euthanized.

In memory of Grandpaw, please help save other animals abandoned to the City shelter system.  Encourage your friends and neighbors to adopt a shelter pet, and, if you wish, make a tax-deductible donation here to Wheels of Hope.

Wheels of Hope (WOH) is part of the Mayor's Alliance for NYC's Animals, a 501(c)(3) non-profit charity. WOH transports animals at risk of euthanasia out of the City shelter system (New York City Animal Care & Control) and delivers them, free of charge, to rescue groups, no-kill shelters, foster homes and veterinary offices. Since 2005, WOH has transported more than 55,000 animals to safety. (WOH’s services are especially important to the larger breed dogs that are in greatest need of being rescued.)

The Mayor's Alliance for NYC's Animals will direct your entire donation to WOH.  And your donation will be doubled, thanks to a $250,000 matching grant offered by two anonymous private foundations.

God bless Grandpaw and all of his friends!
