NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — It’s a sad reality all over the country: thousands of healthy and treatable animals are being euthanized in shelters each day for lack of resources, including space, funding for medical care and too few adopters.
As part of that effort, AC&C will join animal shelters across the nation for “Just One Day” on Wednesday.
“On June 11, the AC&C will suspend all euthanasia, unless deemed medically necessary for humane reasons,” Executive Director Risa Weinstock told 1010 WINS.
Adoption hours will be extended until 8 p.m., adoption fees will be reduced and AC&C’s Mobile Adoption Center will be at Petco Union Square with cats and dogs from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m.
All three AC&C Care Centers will participate. Care Center locations are as follows:
Manhattan (326 East 110th Street)
Brooklyn (2336 Linden Boulevard)
Staten Island (3139 Veteran’s Road West)
Cats and dogs are available and all three. Rabbits are also available for adoption at the Manhattan location.
