There's a reason Friday's Child is now a part
of Her New York, if only to say thank you.
Goldie sleeps with the dolly and the little teddy bear Joni gave me when my cousin, Martha died. She is safe here in this corner from Jupiter insisting on being ... well... Jupiter. She is also finally safe enough to rest from the exhaustion and weariness that happens when someone tosses an animal, no longer wanted, into backyards and onto street corners. And she is safe enough to rest from being neutered right before those kittens were ready to be born. Mending takes times and Goldie is now safe enough to take it.
Meanwhile kittens and puppies abound, all waiting for their own little corner to rest in and sure, every picture posted makes you want to turn your home into a haven for every single abandoned animal.

But wait! You don't have to become an animal hoarder. There are so many other wonderful ways to help.
Do you want to participate in
Not everybody can bring an animal home. Not everybody lives in New York. That's why Social Tees just started an Amazon Wish List. It's easy, it's fast and you never have to risk any allergies or a plane trip when you click a button.
And if you live in New York and are in the neighborhood, stop by the 5th Street Store front 5-7pm weekedays and the Petco adoption events weekends!
Do you want to foster or adopt???!!!!
It's easy. All you have to do is fill out a form.
WHAT'S FOSTERING, YOU WONDER?!
Fostering lasts a few weeks, and Social Tees can provide supplies if you need them. Fostering is SUPER important because it's much healthier for our animals to be in homes than in cages, and it expands our shelter virtually.
AND for every cat and dog that is placed in a foster home, Social Tees can pull another out of the kill shelter. So if you are an animal-lover with commitment issues, FOSTER!!!
For more info on fostering, check out our FAQs here.
