Rational Animal will hold dog tug toy making sessions on the hour with tips on good animal guardianship with handouts to help — shelter maps, orange ribbons, fostering tips. On display is "Gustav" — our first donated sewing machine dedicated to a donor's 181/2 year old cat with lots of homemade beds available for donations. Hear about our newest campaign to prevent dog stealing! Our boutique of cool items for donations include our latest Artists with Animals notecards featuring celebrities and their animals — Frank Sinatra and his dog Ringo included!
Join the Mayor's Alliance for NYC's Animals for Adoptapalooza, our signature pet adoption extravaganzas! These public events feature wonderful cats, dogs, and sometimes rabbits for adoption from dozens of Alliance Participating Organizations. Each Adoptapalooza features additional activities, which might include advice on pet care, training, and grooming; product giveaways; microchipping; dog licensing; pet photographers; dog performances; or other fun activities for the whole family — two- and four-legged alike.
Please join us for our New York City and Westchester sewing events.
Whether you're a beginner (we can show you how to sew) or an expert — the animals need your help!
We’re excited to announce that we’ll be heading back to Friends Seminary School again this year to bring our Mother’s Comfort Project to their Day of Service. This year we’ve added a special feature on homeless birds, by bringing along the expertise of the Avian Welfare Coalition.
So this year, as well as us teaching students how to sew beds and catnip toys for dogs and cats in need, the Avian Welfare Coalition will show them how to make toys for birds in captivity. At the end of the day, students will deliver beds to the cats at Kitty Kind in Petco, Union Square and the bird toys will be taken to Foster Parrots, a sanctuary for large birds.
