Since 1904 the Humane Society of New York has been a presence in New York City, reaching out to animals in need when illness, injury or homelessness strikes. Open seven days a week, its hospital and The Vladimir Horowitz & Wanda Toscanini Horowitz Adoption Center help more than 38,000 animals annually, and their numbers continue to grow. Without the help of the Humane Society of New York, many of these animals would be euthanized or die.
