The University is proud to have worked with organizations like the SPCA of Westchester, playing with and bathing dogs; Green Chimneys, which uses animal-assisted therapy to help abused and special-needs children; Sean Casey Animal Rescue, an organization that rehabilitates neglected animals and helps them find healthy, happy homes; and Anjellicle Cats Rescue, which is fully-staffed by volunteers and always on the lookout for more to help provide a lifeline for abandoned, stray, and neglected cats and kittens.
And here are some more opportunities to help our furry friends:
- Animal Haven in NYC is a great place if you’re interested in feeding, handling, and socializing with cats and dogs.
- Check out the Mayor’s Alliance for NYC’s Animals, a coalition of more than 160 animal rescue groups and shelters working together to transform NYC into a no-kill community by 2015.
- You can also volunteer at your local no-kill shelters like the ASPCA, North Shore Animal League, and more in Westchester County. Or click here for some short-term projects with different animal rights organizations.
