The Mighty Mutts & Ollie's Place are a charity partner for the United Airlines NYC Half for the 3rd year in a row!!!!  


We have a limited number of spots so please contact us today.

Mighty Mutts & Ollie’s Place is an all-volunteer, no-kill dog & cat rescue organization located in New York City.  Our mission is to rescue, rehabilitate and find forever homes for each animal we take in. The average stay of an animal in care is 6-12 months.  Some animals require even more time because they must first be rehabilitated after previous abuse. It takes a great deal of money to care for these animals which includes food, shelter and proper veterinary support. They are all fully vaccinated, spayed/neutered, and fully examined by a veterinarian the moment they are rescued. Sometimes our animals require additional veterinary care particularly if they come from an abused or neglected background. We want them to be in the best possible shape to increase their chance of being adopted into a forever home. 

If you would like to help make a difference in the lives of our rescued animals and support our mission while you are reaching your own personal goal of running in this event, you can receive guaranteed entry by raising funds for Mighty Mutts.
