Toyota of Manhattan Donates $2,500 to Mayor’s Alliance for NYC’s Animals

August 23, 2012 Leave a comment

On Monday we presented a check for $2,500 to the Mayor’s Alliance for NYC’s Animals, the second winning non-profit of our Big Apple Giving Campaign on Facebook. Maggie O’Neill, Director of Development and Steve Gruber, Director of Communications came to accept it on behalf of the organization.

The donation will go towards helping to advance their life-saving programs which include transporting cats and dogs from shelters to loving homes through the Wheels of Hope program. In 2011 alone they were able to transport more than 14,000 animals and this grant will help them transport a few thousand more.

The Mayor’s Alliance for NYC’s Animals is a coalition of more than 150
animal rescues groups and shelters working with Animal Care & Control of
NYC (AC&C) to end the killing of healthy and treatable cats and dogs at
AC&C shelters.

Congratulations again to the Mayor’s Alliance for NYC’s Animals for being the second winning non-profit of our Big Apple Giving Campaign on Facebook. We look forward to contributing to even more deserving non-profits in NYC through our social media initiative.
