How *YOU* Can Help:

While we are always seeking forever adoptive homes for animals in need, we are also in need of many other things and there are numerous ways you can help ESAR save lives...

1. ALWAYS MOST APPRECIATED: You can make simple monetary donations via paypal for the animals. Unlike larger groups, every single penny goes toward animal care and saving lives, as the staff is all volunteer. Just click below! (Also remember to contact your employer as many companies match charitable donations made by their staff!)

2. You can participate in our volunteer opportunities:

Staffing Events - Year round we need volunteers to help staff our public weekend events at Unleashed locations on the UES and the UWS! We need people willing to handle dogs, talk to the public, answer questions, walk dogs, monitor cages, and take applications for our awesome adoptables! Email us at:

Volunteer Drivers - If you have a car (or a zipcar account!) and are willing to donate your vehicle and time, we would love to have you drive for us! Whether it be to events or to a home visit to get an animal into his or her forever home, driving around with us is always a good time! Email us at:

3. You can become a foster parent:

We are always in need of foster homes for our precious critters - Cats and Dogs alike! If you would like to become a foster parent, please fill out our foster/adopt application and email it to us at

4. You can do a little shopping for yourself with iGive or Amazon Smile:

5. You can help us get the word out and recruit others to help! Get your friends to volunteer, get them to adopt, get them to foster, get them to donate, get them to care, get them to spread the word!!! We are thankful for any and all. Just share this page on social media with your contacts by clicking below:

6. You can donate basic supplies (new or gently used) like the following items. These items can be dropped off at any of our adoption events. However, if you are running short on time, you can try our amazon wish list to streamline the process and have what we most need now sent right too us!)
