The Alliance, in partnership with the Petco Foundation, the ASPCA, and Animal Planet, is celebrating the ASPCA's 150th anniversary at a very special Adoptapalooza mega pet adoption event on April 10, 2016.
Thanks to a new law that will take effect on April 1, rabbits no longer are available for sale in NYC pet stores. Those interested in adding a bunny to their families must adopt from a rescue group or shelter.
Having your pets microchipped is one of the best ways to increase the chance that, if your pet becomes lost or stolen and winds up at an animal shelter or veterinary office, he or she can be returned to you.
Licensing contributes to animal control and the protection of the public health. The law requires that all owned dogs be licensed with the dog license tag attached to his/her collar while in public. Dog owners may be fined for violation of these laws.
