The Mayor’s Alliance for NYC’s Animals created the Helping Pets and People in Crisis program in response to the many requests we receive from people facing heartbreaking separation from their pets during times of crisis. The program attempts to provide assistance to individuals and families fleeing domestic violence; seniors requiring medical care outside of their home; and families facing eviction or other temporary setbacks.


By collaborating with traditional social services, we offer creative solutions and pet welfare services aimed at keeping pets with their families or reuniting them quickly once their situation is stabilized. If reunification is not possible, the pets are placed for adoption, sparing families already in crisis the further distress of relinquishing their beloved pet in a shelter.

Helping Pets and People in Crisis Toolkit

By assisting in more than 1,000 individual cases since the program’s launch in 2006, the Helping Pets and People in Crisis program has compiled important resources, information, and promising interventions that can help people, along with their pets, during the most challenging times in their lives. To make these resources easily accessible to social workers and human service organizations and to help them incorporate pet welfare into their work, we created the Helping Pets and People in Crisis Toolkit.

While this toolkit does not serve as an all-inclusive review of available options or resources when dealing with people and their pets in crisis, it is a suggested list of resources, research, assessment tools, and promising practice intervention techniques created as a reference guide for social service professionals. Much of this information is geared to those in New York City, but can be modified for different communities.

The Pilots N Paws web site is is intended to be a meeting place for those who rescue, shelter, or foster animals, and volunteer pilots and plane owners willing to assist with the transportation of animals. It is not the intent of Pilots N Paws to coordinate or arrange these valuable services, but to provide the environment in which those involved can come together in a common place and arrange or schedule rescue flights, overnight foster care or shelter and all other related activities.


Through the discussion board, those involved can exchange information about transports publicly so that they can set up an entire transport and share all information necessary to successfully accomplish the goal, and also allow others to volunteer their efforts if they see help is needed to save animals.

All participants are encouraged to check daily for various new listings on the discussion board for purposes of volunteering or assisting in an effort to save animals. The discussion board is also intended for participants to develop friendships and relationships and to get to know one another because we are all working for a common goal.

The only request for those participating is to be aware of the concerns of others. For that reason there are links to general information that is specific to pilots or those involved in the sheltering or rescue. Aviation is a wonderful alternative to ground transports, but those involved will have concerns not generally faced by ground transporters.
