Mighty Mutts is an all-volunteer, no-kill organization dedicated to rescuing and rehabilitating the strays of New York City. Each day, thousands of stray dogs and cats are forced to live in our city's streets and alleyways, crawling about these desolate areas for refuge. Alone, starving, and in desperate need of veterinary care, these poor creatures struggle day by day for their very lives. Most are not spayed or neutered and will go on to bring many other puppies / kittens into their harsh world. Mighty Mutts is driven to help change all of this.
Waggytail Rescue is a NYC based all-volunteer animal rescue organization dedicated to the rehabilitation and rehoming of small breed dogs and puppies in danger of imminent euthanasia at over-crowded NYC, West Coast and South East animal shelters. In March of this year, WTR expanded its successful ‘foster to adopt’ methods by creating the WaggyWest program to rescue at risk small dogs in California by transporting them to NYC, for foster and adoption.
