Social Tees Animal Rescue is a not-for-profit, strictly no-kill 501c3 organization in the East Village of NYC that takes abandoned animals from kill shelters and provides them with safe haven and veterinary care before placing them in proper forever homes.
We rescue, rehabilitate, and place over 3,000 dogs, cats, birds, and exotics per year. All dogs and cats we rescue are neutered; up to date on vaccines; microchipped; tested; treated with defleaing, deworming, and demiting medication as necessary; and more.
Founded in 1991, Social Tees Animal Rescue is a longstanding member of the Mayor’s Alliance for NYC Animals and a participating shelter under the City of New York’s Animal Care and Control New Hope Program, which places animals in local no-kill shelters. We work closely with the ASPCA, the North Shore Animal League, and Petco. We have also partnered with rescue groups in Tennessee and California, where the euthanasia rates are higher than they are in the northeast, via which we rescue and find forever homes for hundreds of animals annually.
Social Tees Animal Rescue relies heavily on benevolent donations from the public, 100 percent of which are used directly to save animals’ lives. Click here to make a donation!
