We have had a couple recent incidents of found dogs in the neighborhood. I want to thank you all for your concern and vigilance.
I want to remind everyone that there are some easy resources to turn to if you witness animal cruelty, abuse or negligence. If you witness this type of crime please don’t keep it to yourself. Please click on the link below to read a comprehensive FAQ regarding animal cruelty.
The following information is taken from the above link:
“You can report cruelty or fighting complaints to either the New York City Police Department or to the ASPCA Humane Law Enforcement department, which can be reached at (212) 876-7700, ext. 4450, or firstname.lastname@example.org.”
Help for Owners
If you know someone who is having trouble keeping their pet there is a great resource in NYC for them. The Pets for Life NYC program is designed to help reinforce that pet ownership is a lifelong commitment and can provide services for eligible owners to help them with boarding, training and more. There is more information on the link below.
