In the animal community we always think of people helping furry, feathered and scaled ones. The Wildlife Conservation Society, which is the parent organization of New Yorks City's four zoos and aquarium, has turned the tables by collecting non-perishable people food and unwrapped toys for distribution by City Harvest.
Brooklyn Bark Dog Walking and Pet Sitting Service has long been shouting kudos to members of the animal community who devote themselves to animal rescue. Here is a twist of fate - the animals are devoting themselves human rescue.
Thank you, creatures! What's the deal?
Between November 28 and December 31, bring 10 non-perishable food items (packaging intact, please) or a new, unwrapped toy to:
- Prospect Park Zoo
- Bronx Zoo
- Central Park Zoo
- Queens Zoo
- NY Aquarium
and receive a free pass to the Bronx Zoo. You can opt for a free pass to the Aquarium if you bring your donation there.
City Harvest distributes more than 150,000 TONS of food to programs throughout NYC, feeding over 300,000 hungry New Yorkers every week. Our furry, feathered and scaled friends could not have found a better program to support in our City!
May we suggest a trip to the zoo - or the Aquarium - over the holiday season? And may we suggest that there is no better way to go than FREE. Well, yes there is, going because you are helping feed our neighbors who are hungry.
