The city has added a pet hotline to its list of COVID-19 resources available.
For many of us a pet is a part of the family, which is something city officials say they understand and ultimately why they are making these services available.
The new services include a pet hotline where you can be connected to whatever services you need for your pets. Those services provided by the city’s Animal Planning Task Force, which is a collaboration between both city agencies like the Office of Emergency Management and several nonprofits including the ASPCA and the Humane Society.
City leaders say they hope the hotline will help any New York City residents who have questions or concerns, whether that means connecting them to emergency veterinary care or food and supply distribution.
The ASPCA president says critical animal care resources are available for pet owners, and now they’re just trying to make sure anyone who needs it has an easy way to access it
Pet hotline operators are available from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. every day.
