In many metropolitan cities, there is no shortage of stray animals roaming around without a home to call their own. New York City is no exception. The cold winter months are the worst time for these animals to be on the street, with many shelters not having the money and resources to bring them all in.
Attorney Ross Abelow aims to change that with the launch of a GoFundMe campaign. GoFundMe is a popular website that has recently been a preferred platform for anyone seeking to raise money for a number of different causes.
Abelow started the page to help provide New York City shelters with the necessary money to house these stray animals. Most shelters face a harsh reality of not having enough funding to support extensive care for animals. They especially cannot support the increase in strays coming in during the winter months, when there’s often a shortage of food, blankets, and proper medication. Abelow started the fundraiser in mid-January and aims to raise $5000 to help New York City shelters.
