Adopt a Picasso Veterinary Fund Pet

Traditionally, animals with extreme medical needs who are taken in by animal control shelters are euthanized because the funds needed to pay for surgeries and other expensive treatments just haven't been available. But many of these animals would make wonderful, loving pets if only they had access to the medical treatment they need. The Picasso Veterinary Fund (PVF) was created to give these animals the second chances they deserve. By paying for medical treatment that otherwise would not be available to them, the PVF is saving lives that in the past would have been lost.

Administered by the Mayor's Alliance for NYC's Animals, the Picasso Veterinary Fund pays for lifesaving medical treatment for sick and injured animals transferred from Animal Care & Control of NYC (AC&C) to other Alliance Participating Organizations (APOs) for adoption. The PVF is now branching out to also cover animals impacted by domestic abuse situations, as well as those surrendered by owner/guardians due to medical/health issues. These animals get the veterinary care they need to get back on their feet, and then are put up for adoption when they are healthy enough to be placed in a good home. Since 2003, hundreds of dogs and cats have received medical treatment paid for by the PVF.

Foster Care

We are in desperate need of foster caretakers! There are many ways you can foster PVF animals. Whether you want to foster until you find the right dog or cat for you to adopt, foster for a short or long time, or foster temporarily until an animal finds his/her forever home, we could really use your help! To volunteer as a foster caretaker, please submit a Volunteer Application. For more information, contact us at adoption@AnimalAllianceNYC.org.
