The overpopulation of pets is caused by abandonment, lack of funds, cruelty and improper medical care. The New York ASPCA is committed to helping animals in Queens and throughout the City that have been abandoned, born on the street or are being mistreated. Should you want to adopt a pet, give up a pet or report any form of animal cruelty, here are some organizations and numbers you can call.
Amazing Animals Rescue and Adoptions
Amazing Animal Rescue and Adoptions finds good homes for abandoned animals. They trap and spay or neuter animals. For those that are friendly, they find suitable homes. For those deemed unfriendly, they release them to their original homes. Call for appointment.
