Wildfires are devastating communities across California, causing more than 300,000 people to evacuate their homes and threatening many more. The Camp Fire in Northern California -- one of three blazing across the state -- is the most destructive in state history. We want to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you find access to shelter. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know the most effective ways to contribute.

The goal of Zani's Furry Friends is to rescue animals, dogs and cats in particular, and to help those adoptable animals who come into the NYC shelter system find new forever homes. On a larger scale, we wish to contribute by being a small part of a much needed local and regional effort to decrease euthanasia by promoting rescue of perfectly good family companion animals who are all too frequently dumped in the city pounds--an unfortunately all too common occurrence in our throwaway society.
To achieve this goal, our desire is to match companion animal to appropriate home with the appropriate family. To expedite these transitions from shelter to home, we provide a home environment, vet visits/medical attention, grooming, training, reference checks/home visits, transport, and support for both animals and adopters.
As a New Hope partner with Animal Care and Control of NYC and as an Alliance Participating Organization we hope to contribute to making New York City a No Kill city. We are not nave enough to believe that no animals will be euthanized--rather that adoptable ones will have a second chance.
We are a group of fosters dedicated to giving cats/dogs a loving home environment while they await their furever homes. We pull almost exclusively from the overcrowded city's kill shelters when the dog/cat has run out of time (which can be as little as 0 hours for an owner surrendered pet to 3 days for a stray) and end up on the daily euthanasia list. We host weekly adoption events in NYC (Sundays) and post our cats/dogs on our website in 3 states (NY, CT, RI). We adopt both locally and out of state in the hopes of helping them find the right furever home.
