Happy National Dog Day! Today Animoto is celebrating Animal Haven, a local adoption shelter right down the street from our NYC Headquarters. Animal Haven’s mission is to find homes for abandoned cats and dogs in the greater NYC area. The folks at Animal Haven believe in community, and that’s why they work together with other NYC adoption shelters, provide programs that enhance the bonds between animals and people, and have a highly rated volunteer program.
During Hurricane Sandy, Animal Haven turned their adoption shelter into an emergency rescue center for animals that were affected by the storm. Despite the fact that the shelter was without power for an entire week, the animals remained their top priority. Workers used flashlights to navigate the shelter and care for the animals. When they were unable to open the electronic storefront gate, they hoisted extra supplies through the second-story window.
Animal Haven provides homes for 50-100 pets a month, including some of the cuties in the video below. A big “Thank You!” to Animal Haven for all the great work you’re doing for the animals you care for as well as the community! There are lots of ways to celebrate National Dog Day. Check out a few of them here!
