PAWING IT FORWARD
DAY OF CHARITY FOR THE ANIMALS
This is a free event where everything donated is given away free to those in need. Forgotten Chances animal rescue is hosting this event. We cannot do this without you. Donations and volunteers are needed to make this happen.
We need cat food, dog food and pet supplies, which will be distributed to low income pet owners on the day of the event.
We also need volunteers to:
Groom, advocates to speak, help distributing food, face painters, help with children’s activities and set up and breakdown All are welcome!
To have supplies mailed to us use our amazon wish list.
Forgotten Chances is hosting this event in order to help keep pets in their homes instead of being dumped at ACC. Many people in New York City think the ACC will rehome their pets, but we at Forgotten Chances are wise and experienced enough to know that most animals that end up at ACC aren't so lucky.
We want to educate the public about the many services available to them like free spay/neuter, low cost vaccine clinics, low cost vet services, and proper pet care. There are many pet -parents living on limited incomes in New York City. Some people literally have to choose between feeding themselves or their pets, and sometimes the elderly end up sharing their food with their pets. For some, their pets are their family -- the only companions they have -- and we'd like to help them stay together.
We want to see less and less pets being surrendered to ACC simply because people can’t afford to feed or vet them; or simply because they don't know that rescues exist that can help with their situation.
Thank you for your continued support.
