Ross Abelow, a New York City lawyer, cares greatly about the welfare of homeless animals. He has started a project to help homeless animals find homes. He plans to do this by raising money to help house unsheltered animals at animal shelters. The funding is going to come from a Go Fund Me campaign that was started by the lawyer. Abelow hopes to get $5000 from the campaign that can be used to help stray animals. The funds are going to be donated to local animal shelters, and they will use the money to help care for stray animals in New York City. The campaign was started in mid-January of this year, and it is still going on. He hopes that the campaign will help reach animals that otherwise would not be cared for.
There are quite a few homeless dogs and cats in New York City. These animals are forced to survive in very dangerous conditions. Local shelters in New York City and elsewhere are aware that many animals are sleeping on the streets. However, they aren’t able to bring them all in. This is due to a lack of resources rather than unwillingness to take them in. In order to care for the animals, shelters need to have sufficient food and blankets to care for them. They do not always have this. Ross Abelow hopes to give the shelters access to these supplies through his donations. The money that he is raising is a relatively small amount. However, it is enough that it can be used by shelters to purchase supplies for quite a few animals. This could enable shelters to bring quite a number of these animals. Furthermore, it could help a lot of animals to find permanent homes. People commonly adopt animals from shelters in New York City and elsewhere.
The winter is a difficult time for strays. The cold makes survival on the streets difficult for homeless animals. Often times, shelters do not have space to take in all homeless animals. In many cases, stray animals are simply left to wander the streets. This season has been especially difficult for homeless animals in New York City. The weather this winter has been particularly cold, and this has contributed to the deaths of many homeless animals.
