Join the Mayor's Alliance for NYC's Animals for Adoptapalooza, our signature pet adoption extravaganzas! These public events feature wonderful cats, dogs, and sometimes rabbits for adoption from dozens of Alliance Participating Organizations. Each Adoptapalooza features additional activities, which might include advice on pet care, training, and grooming; product giveaways; microchipping; dog licensing; pet photographers; dog performances; or other fun activities for the whole family — two- and four-legged alike.

Reducing feline suffering by providing housing for homeless cats rescued from municipal shelters, sterilizing those stray and feral cats to reduce overpopulation and by providing necessary medical treatment.
The house in Oyster Bay is a closed–admission sanctuary for homeless cats that are rescued primarily from Animal Care and Control and The Mayor's Alliance for NYC's Animals. It features outdoor enclosed runs and offers a home–like atmosphere where the cats live uncaged (unless illness necessitates temporary caging). Caretakers live on the premises to accommodate daily care for the cats. Our on-site staff veterinarian checks each cat on a regular basis and provides any medical treatment necessary. All cats are vaccinated, tested for FELV/FIV, sterilized and microchipped. New cats are quarantined for 30 days prior to introduction to the resident cats. Due to our small size, we are unable to accept cats from the public. When space allows, we rescue and provide medical care for cats slated for euthanasia from overcrowded city shelters or the Mayor's Alliance through the New Hope Fund. The New Hope Fund was started through a generous donation from Sandra Atlas Bass and has continued with a generous grant from Maddie's Fund.
Due to the generosity of Maddie's Fund, PHLF received a $29,000 subsidy to help cover the ever-rising costs of medical care. We were able to place 109 cats in loving homes last year, and continue to pay for medical care for the rest of the cats in our care. Apart from our New Hope Fund, the subsidy also paid for and continues to pay for cats that are adopted with pre-existing heart murmurs. Our Have-A-Heart Fund, developed specifically from this grant, pays for costly echocardiograms for any cat that is adopted with a pre-existing heart murmur for the life of the cat. Since the inception of this program 5 cats with pre-existing heart murmurs were placed into homes. These funds will continue to allow us to provide premium medical care for the cats and kittens in our care. Our organization is using Maddie's Adoption Subsidy to help us pay for lab work and other costs that are necessary and making our cats as adoptable as possible.
PHLF would like to thank Maddie's Fund for their generous grant to our sanctuary.
