COVID-19 News

April 28,2020. NYC EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT ANNOUNCES NYC COVID-19 COMPANION ANIMAL HOTLINE TO PROVIDE SUPPORT FOR ANIMALS OF PEOPLE AFFECTED BY CORONAVIRUS. Link: https://www1.nyc.gov/site/em/about/press-releases/20200428_pr_nycem_announces-covid-pet-hotline-to-provide-support.page

The New York City Emergency Management Department and the Mayor’s Office of Animal Welfare today announced the launch of the NYC COVID-19 Pet Hotline. The Pet Hotline will serve as an information, planning, referral and service coordination hub for NYC residents who need support for their pets during the COVID-19 pandemic. Pet Hotline operators can be reached directly at 877-204-8821, from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. daily.

The Pet Hotline and supportive services are being provided by the City’s Animal Planning Task Force, which is coordinated by NYC Emergency Management. The Task Force is a collaboration between City agencies and nonprofits. These include the Humane Society of the United States, the ASPCA, Animal Haven, Animal Care Centers of NYC, Bideawee, American Red Cross, Mayor’s Alliance for NYC’s Animals, NYC VERT, New York State Animal Protection Federation, Best Friends Animal Society, and PAWS NY.

“Pets and service animals are a part of our family, and we want to alleviate any concern associated with having to take care of these family members during these trying times,” said NYC Emergency Management Commissioner Deanne Criswell. “We are thankful to our task force members who have stepped up to help New Yorkers who need this service.”

“This Administration has always understood that animals share our homes, our lives, and are sometimes our closest companions,” said Mayor’s Community Affairs Unit Commissioner Marco A. Carrión. “We must support and plan for all New Yorkers, including four-legged ones, during these times, and we are grateful to all of the animal welfare partners who have stepped up to create the Pet Hotline and provide lifesaving services to animals.”

“During this time of uncertainty and fear, we understand people need the comfort of their companion animals more than ever,” said Christine Kim, Senior Community Liaison for the Mayor’s Office of Animal Welfare. “In order to keep people and their animals together, we have ensured that animals are included in the safety net we have created for all New Yorkers. I thank all of our partners within NYC Emergency Management’s Animal Planning Task Force for stepping up during the COVID-19 crisis to support pets and the people who love them.”

The Pet Hotline will help mitigate people’s questions and concerns about keeping their pets during the COVID-19 crisis, as well as connect callers to pet relief resources such as subsidized emergency veterinary care and food and supply distribution services. For NYC residents with pets requiring a higher level of care, cases will be escalated for coordination of temporary placement or supplemental care of animals. NYC’s COVID-19 pet response plan is the first of its kind in the country.

Upcoming Adoption Events

Update: March 2020 – Changes due to COVID-19: Due to social distancing and other safety guidelines, we are currently not planning on any outdoor or indoor adoption events until the lock-down order is over; and until it is medically safe to hold such events. In the meantime all ‘meetings” with cats are virtual.

Thank you for your understanding.


If you are interested in one of our friendly cats or kittens on our adoption page but are unable to visit our shelter, please contact us and we will arrange how to go about it, whether virtually or in person.

Visit our Facebook page or Instagram for the most up to date news and events.

Or come to our Park Slope location anytime to see some of our available cats (Update March 2020 – cats and kittens are not currently housed in this store due to Covid-19 restrictions but cats are living with fosters all through various neighborhoods in and around Park Slope.)
