The Amazing Work of the Humane Society of New York


The Humane Society of New York is one of the most fantastic animal shelters. Not only is it a great place for a dog or cat, but it also helps animals that are rescued from all over the country. This is important to all of us, and it's a great organization to help out. Here are a few ways you can donate to the organization.

Helping animals in shelters

The Humane Society of New York is a well-regarded and respected animal welfare organization that has been around for over a century. With over two dozen locations in New York City and Long Island, the organization has seen its fair share of dogs and cats go home a happy and healthy family members. It was also the first in the nation to receive funding from the Companion Animal Capital Fund.

It's a great place to bring your pet when they need a home and is an asset to the community when they need to be out of there. However, they are not exactly a pet lovers' paradise. They operate on a strict "no-kill" policy, and most of their animals end up in the hands of human caretakers, who often don't have the best intentions. For instance, a stray dog or cat can end up in the back of a taxi if they are unlucky.

Advocating for homeless pets in New York City

The Humane Society of New York is not the only organization in town advocating for homeless pets. Many others include the Animal Welfare League, Lifesaving Work Shelter, and the ASPCA. All of them are doing their part to improve the lives of animals in the boroughs.

The ASPCA is a nonprofit group headquartered in New York City that provides a wide range of services to the public. They operate a fully staffed medical clinic and have a robust adoption program. This is why they have fostered over 3,000 dogs and cats a year. Their mission is to ensure that the public has access to a broad range of animal-related information and education.

SRAC is a coalition of volunteers and concerned citizens who have come together to improve the lives of the city's homeless animals. They are the brains behind the Companion Animal Care Standards Act, a proposed bill that would create a licensing and inspection program for the city's municipal animal shelters.

Funding for shelters and humane societies

Shelters and humane societies need funding to operate and provide animals with a safe environment. The cost of running a shelter is substantial; many are operating under severe deficits. This means that only a small number of animals are finding homes.

Many animal shelters and rescue organizations rely on donations and private fundraising events to fund their operations. These funds are used to purchase supplies and provide employees with a paycheck. Besides providing a home for animals, these shelters also offer veterinary services.

New York State Governor Andrew Cuomo announced a new initiative to provide capital grants for animal shelters. Nearly $4.5 million will be awarded to 13 covers for renovations and expansion projects.

The Second Chance Fund helps abused and neglected animals. Animal shelters are often forced to euthanize animals that cannot be adopted. In addition, a Foreclosure Pet Grant will be available to assist shelters dealing with an influx of abandoned pets due to foreclosures.

Supporting Project Chimps

The Humane Society of New York (HSUS) has played a vital role in the ongoing care of hundreds of chimpanzees in the United States and in other countries. In 2015, HSUS rescued 2354 animals, provided spay and neuter services to 14,433 pets, and facilitated the veterinary care and rehabilitation of 60 chimpanzees in Liberia. They also work to stop malicious acts of cruelty against animals and promote reforms in the agriculture sector.

HSUS was a strong advocate for more excellent protection for burros. Through their efforts, more than 265 burros were adopted into new homes from BLM holding facilities. This number was up from the previous year, and HSUS has continued to work with partners to ensure that these animals are well cared for.

HSUS has also been active in helping to promote the welfare of chimpanzees, including those in solitary confinement in zoos. For example, in 2014, NhRP filed a writ of habeas corpus in New York for two chimpanzees and secured a hearing on their behalf.
