NEW YORK–Stella & Chewy's will be the sole sponsor of Adopt NY, a new initiative launched by Dog Habitat Rescue and Project Pet Inc.
Adopt NY's mission advocates a citywide no-kill policy and encourages local adoption of animals from the New York area. The organization also aims to educate the public about the importance of rescuing.
An adoption website, adoptny.org, showcases New York adoptable rescue dogs and cats and makes it easy for potential owners to connect with rescues. A series of adoption events, sponsored by Stella & Chewy's will be held throughout the New York metro area.
"We have partnered with Dog Habitat Rescue in the past and we have seen firsthand how they save dogs and find them good homes, some that others have considered beyond saving," said Marie Moody, founder and president of Stella & Chewy's. "We think if more New Yorkers know about the amazing animals in the city that are being euthanized for lack of space and resources, they'll embrace our mission and first consider adopting."
