Over 20,000 pets are surrendered to our municipal animal shelters every year. We're here to help. But, it's not simply a matter of providing food to needy pet owners. It's also important to ensure they have support and resources. In 2016, we were able to assist 170 pets directly with our programs, and we were able to refer 54 pets to other organizations for assistance.
For $15 a month: We are able to provide a vaccine to a cat or dog, a 13lbs bag of dry cat or dog food or cat wet food for a month to an existing pet in our programs!

"Keeping families and their pets together"
Healthy Pets Project of NYC, Inc. was created in order to help pet owners in crisis care and keep their pet companions at home.
We are a group of individuals that believe strongly and wholeheartedly in the bond between a human and a companion pet. Each pet and each person has a unique story, and they deserve our support.
We want to take the stigma off pet owners that even though they love their pet, sometimes they just can't afford NYC Veterinary care.
By providing pet owner support, services and education, we want to prevent owners from surrendering their companion pets to our municipal shelter. Our goal is to diminish the number of homeless and abandoned pets in New York City.
Access to information and accessible care is crucial to a pet's wellbeing. It reduces their chance to be relinquished to the municipal animal shelter.
Please check out our Resources page for articles on how to care for your pet.
Healthy Pets Project of NYC Inc., may be able to provide Veterinary assistance for your pet, but cases are reviewed thoroughly. Unfortunately we can not help all cases that contact us. You may be referred to other veterinary hospitals/clinics.
We also may provide Food Packages for pet owners in need in Brooklyn, Manhattan and Queens. Others will be referred to other organizations in the NYC area.
If your pet is in need of emergency veterinary care (examples: bleeding, non stop vomiting, not eating for more than a day and lethargy). Please check out the ASPCA (open 8:30am-4pm) or the AMC (open 24hrs) for their programs and services.

Healthy Pets Project of NYC Inc. only operates in NYC.
Due to COVID-19, We are not able to provide spay/neuter at this time. We encourage pet owners to wait until August,2020 and see the plan for Low Cost Services for NYC.Basic vaccinations and spay/neuter are essential to creating a healthy start for a companion pet. The lack of this basic service can be deadly to pets.
We provide this service through one of our partners. It is done once a month (usually Saturday) at Veterinary clinic.
