As part of the NYC Emergency Management Animal Planning Task Force, the ASPCA helped launch the NYC COVID-19 Pet Hotline to provide NYC residents with the emergency resources, support, and information needed to care for their pets during the COVID-19 crisis. This system will direct New Yorkers to vital services including pet food and pet supply distribution, emergency medical services, emergency animal boarding, and animal surrender services. If you or someone you know needs assistance- please call the NYC Covid-19 Pet Hotline at (877) 204-8821. The hotline will run from 8 am-8 pm ET, seven days per week.
