Half The World's Wildlife Gone Over Last 40 Years

"The world has lost 52 percent of its biodiversity since 1970, the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) announced in a study released today on the state of our planet."  

We were very concerned about this report we saw on CBS and highly recommend reading it.

A Note On 9/11

What a special letter to one of our 9/11 heroes, Kerry McGinnis.
Thank you for thinking of us!  And good job Mr. G!





The Humane Society of New York conducted a major rescue operation in the wake of the attack on the World Trade Center, encompassing care and support for animals harmed or left homeless through the disaster. Directly after the attack, the Society's veterinarians were the first to begin emergency triage at Pier 40, near "Ground Zero". They attended more than 200 animals at the Pier, and served as medical escorts for individuals going into sealed apartments to retrieve pets.

WE ALL SCREAM FOR ICE CREAM!

What could be better than a sunny day at the Humane Society of New York? A visit from Ben & Jerry’s Core Tour Ice Cream Truck! Wow! We are so grateful to Jana and Dan for scooping up cups of delicious flavors for our staff and clients. 
A perfect way to kick off the Fourth of July weekend! Fellow Dogs: no matter how tempted you are (trust me, I posed with the ice cream but knew I couldn’t really eat any…), don’t eat any chocolate, raisins, grapes or onions!

Mother's Day

Sunday is Mother’s Day. I don’t know where my mother is. I was taken away from her and left alone in the street when I was just a puppy. To all those that are lucky enough to have a mother, I wish you a wonderful holiday.

Take Your Child To Work Day with Tuesday's Children

Last week was Take Your Child To Work Day and we participated with Tuesday's Children, a tradition we have been upholding for years now.  Our three new friends were very helpful and eager to learn about what we do here and meet all the animals in our shelter.  We had a very nice time together!  
For more information on Tuesday's Children, please visit: http://www.tuesdayschildren.org/

Happy Saint Patrick's Day


Happy Saint Patrick’s Day!  As you know, every year I attend the parade and this year, I am bringing my friend Cat McEric along with me.  Doesn’t he look good? We are going to wear matching green outfits and say hello to everyone. Hope to see you there! 

Update: Exhausted (and one too many green waters)!

Acts of Happiness

Acts of Happiness is a global campaign culminating on March 20, 2014.  It was created by Live Happy to inspire the world to think, act, and live happy.  Coinciding with the United Nations' International Day of Happiness, you're invited to do good, feel good, and pledge your #happyacts on actsofhappiness.org.  

What is a happy act?  The best part is that it can be anything you want!  It does its part to spread a little joy and make the world a happier place.  It can be a smile to a stranger, a treat for a dog, a hug for a friend.  I've already declared my #happyacts on actsofhappiness.org.  I said I'm happy because I get to help sick animals feel better every day and help homeless animals find loving families.  What will you put?
