There have been many people who have had the sad experience of taking a stray animal they find on the streets of New York City to an animal shelter and have been turned away. They felt that the best thing for the animal was to place it in a shelter. Unfortunately, the shelter did not have the funding that was available or the space that was needed to take in more animals. This is a serious problem that animal shelters in New York City and in other places are facing. Fortunately, there are some people who are trying to do something about the problem. For example, Ross Abelow has decided to raise money for animal shelters in New York City.
In January 2016, Ross Abelow launched a campaign that will benefit strays in the New York City area. He wants to raise $5,000. Once this goal is met, all of the money will be donated to local shelters. The money will be used to address some of their biggest problems. More space can be attained where animals can be sheltered. Also, there will be more cash on hand to purchase things like food and blankets. Many of the animals that are brought to New York animal shelters need medical attention. The money can be used to pay vet bills and also to purchase medicine and vaccinations.
It is important for individuals to realize that this is an urgent problem that needs to be addressed. When animals are not in shelters during the cold winter months, they suffer and some even die. Even if an individual can only donate a small amount, the money they donate will be appreciated. The best way for people to help with this campaign is to use the Go Fund Me account that was set up by Ross Martin Abelow. People can make small donations by means of this account. If a lot of people make donations, this problem can be addressed as soon as possible.
