Additional Reading for Out of the Cage! Subscribers

If you enjoy reading Out of the Cage!, then you also might want to subscribe to some of the online and paper newsletters published by a wide range of organizations that are working to improve the lives of animals in NYC and beyond. We're featuring some of these newsletters here, with links that will take you to the organizations' websites so you can sign up to receive their newsletters.

The listing that follows, however, is not exhaustive; it includes only those newsletters of which we are aware, and which are featured on the Mayor's Alliance website's Other Newsletters page to encourage visitors to subscribe. If your organization publishes a newsletter — either online or in print — and you wish to have a link on the Mayor's Alliance website, please contact us at

Some of the Mayor's Alliance member animal shelters and rescue groups publish newsletters that report on their activities and programs, their successes, and the animals in their care awaiting adoption. Among the Alliance Participating Organizations that offer newsletters are:

American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA)

Animal Care & Control of NYC (AC&C)

Animal Haven

Bobbi and the Strays

Rawhide Rescue

Stray from the Heart

If your interest lies with the plight of feral cats and you are interested in reading about organizations that promote the care of feral cat colonies and work to humanely reduce the feral cat population through Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) programs, you might want to subscribe to the newsletters published by:

Neighborhood Cats

Slope Street Cats

Urban Cat League

If you want to stay abreast of all the news coming out of Maddie's Fund, the Pet Rescue Foundation — the organization that provides significant funding to the Mayor's Alliance and is dedicated to transforming the U.S. into a no-kill nation — we suggest you read:

Maddie's Fund: The No-Kill Nation

One of our favorite newsletters is one that promotes adoption of senior animals — dogs and cats who for one reason or another find themselves in need of a new home later in life:

Senior Pets: All They Need is Love

Another good publication is one that promotes adoption of animals whose guardians died, leaving behind pets in need of new homes:

2nd Chance 4 Pets

We've discovered that many of our readers are especially interested in the welfare of birds, and we know of two good publications dedicated exclusively to avian issues:

MAARS: MAARSianChronicles

Foster Parrots: The Flying Monkey

If animal health, wellness, and alternative therapies are topics you're interested in, we suggest you check out a newsletter dedicated to the practice of TTouch:

Mindful Tails: eTails & Paws

These are just some of the publications available to readers who want to know more.
