The Health Department and Animal Care & Control of New York City (AC&C) have announced several changes that will improve the health and wellbeing of animals taken in by AC&C, one of the largest animal welfare organizations in the country. The City will provide more than $8 million in capital funding to build a new adoption center at the Manhattan Care Center, modernize the Brooklyn Care Center, double the organization’s current fleet of mobile adoption vans and expand AC&C’s fundraising capacity.
“AC&C is committed to continual improvement and this additional funding will have a significant impact on our progress,” said AC&C Executive Director Risa Weinstock. “We are so grateful to the Mayor, City Council and the Health Department for supporting our efforts and investing the capital that will drive greater success. In 2014, 80.7 percent of the cats and dogs AC&C cared for were adopted, reunited or transferred to placement partners, and in the month of December 2014, this number was over 87 percent. The City’s substantial support enables AC&C to continue to expand and improve our services as a compassionate resource for pets and people in NYC.”
