Happy National Volunteer Week!
ACC Volunteers mean everything to the animals of NYC. Your unwavering commitment to the well-being of our furry friends is inspiring, and we cannot thank you enough for the time and effort you have put in to help make their lives better. To thank our volunteers for their hard work, we threw them a party! The images above are just a few of the smiling faces from the wonderful get-together.

Last week, New York City became the first city in the nation to BAN the sale of guinea pigs in pet stores!
Ever since the pandemic, shelters have been struggling with the sheer number of guinea pig surrenders and abandonment cases. We are very excited about the changes that the guinea pig bill will bring, and we would like to extend a big thank you to Speaker Adams, Council Member Ayala, Council Member Schulman, and Allie from Voters for Animal Rights for their efforts in helping this bill get passed.
Join our program aimed at spreading the word on the popular Nextdoor app!
Help us get the word out about the pets at ACC, adoption events, foster opportunities and more! ACC's Marketing team will provide you with the verbiage and images to post to your Nextdoor community to let neighbors know that NYC pets need them too!
