Wheels of Hope in the News

Every day of the year, the Mayor's Alliance for NYC's Animals' fleet of six Wheels of Hope vans is on the road, transporting pets who are at risk of being euthanized from the city's Animal Care Centers of NYC (ACC) facilities to rescue groups and no-kill shelters with the resources to find them new homes.

Since 2005, when the program began, we have carried more than 93,000 animals on Wheels of Hope on their first steps to new lives and families. In 2015 alone, more than 13,200 animals were transported via these "sanctuaries on wheels" to foster caretakers, rescues, and no-kill shelters that placed them in forever homes.

Animals are at risk of euthanasia 365 days of the year, so this program is up and rolling 365 days a year.
