Celebrate #GivingTuesday by giving a homeless NYC pet a life-saving ride on the Wheels of Hope! Your $50 donation will provide transportation for one animal to his/her brand new life.
The Mayor's Alliance for NYC's Animals' fleet of six Wheels of Hope vans transports animals from Animal Care Centers of NYC (ACC) facilities to rescue groups and animal shelters with the resources to find them new homes. Since 2005, we have transported more than 95,000 dogs, cats, rabbits, and other animals on their first steps to new lives and families. In 2014 alone, more than 13,700 transports took place via these “sanctuaries on wheels" to foster caretakers, rescue groups, and forever homes. Wheels of Hope is on the road, saving lives, 365 days a year.
How Does Wheels of Hope Support Our Progress in NYC?
Wheels of Hope is the only animal transportation program in NYC that transports animal at no charge to the shelters and rescue groups that use the service, and the only program with the ability to transport dozens of animals at the same time. As a result, these organizations can save more animals and focus their energy and resources on finding homes for the ones they save. Wheels of Hope allows ACC to move animals out of its facilities more quickly, creating space for additional animals arriving at the shelters and reducing the chances that these pets will become ill. This also reduces medical costs to the shelters and rescue groups that save them.
How Does Your Donation Help?
Wheels of Hope supplements the resources of the Alliance's 150 partner rescue groups and shelters, allowing them to focus on what they do best: finding homes for the animals. All costs of the transport program — including the vehicles themselves, maintenance, fuel, insurance, licensing, and paying our dedicated drivers and transport coordinators — are borne by the Alliance, a 501(c)(3) non-profit charity that does not receive any government funding.
As we race to help even more animals find homes for the new year, your #GivingTuesday donation will keep the Wheels of Hope reliably turning in 2016 and beyond!
