Animal Care & Control to Receive 2,000 Bowls of Food

By Michele C. Hollow of Pet News and Views

Hill’s Pet Nutrition and Animal Care & Control (AC&C) share a mission. They both work hard to bring pets and people together. Through its shelter program, Hill’s feeds homeless pets in nearly 1,000 shelters every day. This time, Hill’s requested to host a giveaway on Pet News and Views, and that the donation—2,000 bowls of pet food—be donated to AC&C.

I’ve toured the Hill’s facility and was quite impressed. You can read about my visit by clicking here.

Known by locals as AC&C, it’s the largest pet not-for-profit in the northeast. As a not-for-profit organization since 1995, AC&C has been responsible for NYC’s municipal shelter system, rescuing and finding loving homes for homeless and abandoned animals in NYC (I’m a native, and proud of it). To service all NYC communities, AC&C facilities operate in all five boroughs. The Bronx and Queens are receiving centers. Manhattan, Brooklyn, and Staten Island are full service adoption centers. AC&C partners with 150 shelters and rescues in NYC. It’s part of the Mayor’s Alliance. “We are the triage center,” says Julie Bank, executive director of AC&C.

“Our goal is to place every cat and dog that can be placed,” says Julie. “Every animal that comes in our doors receives medical attention.” When Julie says, “every animal,” she means it. AC&C has welcomed foxes, chickens, and rabbits (the third most common pet after cats and dogs). They have even, on occasion, had to treat lions, tigers, and bears. Wildlife and farm animals are referred to other agencies that care for them. The majority of the animals at AC&C are cats and dogs.

“AC&C is very excited to partner with Hill’s Science Diet on this project,” says Julie. “This food will go a long way to care for the animals and save lives. We are pleased to have a long lasting standing relationship with Hill’s Science Diet.”

“Hill’s Pet Nutrition is very proud to support the Animal Care & Control shelter of New York City, through Pet News and Views,” says Arnaud Brel, Senior Product Manager of Shelter & Professional Endorsement. “When Michele C. Hollow approached Science Diet with the idea, we thought it was a natural fit with our Hill’s Food, Shelter & LoveTM program.”

Since 2002, Hill’s has donated more than $240 million worth of Science Diet brand foods to nearly 1,000 animal shelters, nationwide. It has also helped more than 6 million pets find new homes.

Leave a Comment
I am happy that Pet News and Views is the go-between for this donation. Can you leave a comment and tell us what makes a shelter or rescue special or why you volunteer? Please include the name of your shelter or rescue.

A Note from Michele
Many of you know me. I am the person who writes this blog. It has come to my attention that AC&C is overrun with problems. Since I posted, I heard from many of you and have been disheartened to learn about AC&C’s mismanagement and neglect towards the animals in their care and the abuse to the volunteers. Some of the accusations really trouble me. I enjoy using my blog as a go-between for animal shelters and pet product/food manufacturers. I think Hill’s is quite generous, and I’m happy to be aligned with them. I’m not so sure about AC&C. I have spent the last two days talking to people and researching stories about AC&C. I plan on doing a follow up story soon.

    My favorite animal shelter is Bideawee in NYC. Bideawee works with AC&C.

  • kristi radu

    It’s really great what those good people are doing for animals. It’s a pity,however,that are still many homeless animals all over the world. I think that in every country the gouvernment should help people who want to create such organizations, open shelters for animals.

  • Warren

    Thanks Michele for being the go-between. Thanks to Hill’s too.

  • Larry

    I’m also a New Yorker, and AC&C does some great work. I love that they don’t turn anyone away. They really need everyone’s support. Thanks Hill’s.

  • Carla

    For me, it’s Jersey Animal Coalition!

  • In my opinion shelters and rescue operations are special because they exist at all. How awful to contemplate a world w/ even more throwaway animals roaming the streets and starving. In addition to feeding it would be wonderful if the companies which are sponsoring contests whould find a way to sponsor neutering programs which are trying to stem the tide of growing animal populations. We need both.

  • Clarice

    I’m here in NYC, and I adopted a part pit/part lab mix from AC&C. She is the best! Thanks Hill’s.

  • Ng Lee

    It’s great that you are using your site to help others. Bless you Michele. And thank you Hill’s for your donation.

  • Katherine

    My two cats are rescues from Animal Haven in NYC.

  • Cory

    What a great partnership and great thing to do! Thank you to Michele and Hills!

  • Leslie Strauss

    I won a Hills Science Diet promotion contest and received a free 4 pound bag of grain free pet food for my rescue dog, Copley. The food actually smells delicious and I was so happy to see that cranberries are part of the mix, because it also means that Copley can share in eating all of the contents of my Greek yogurt mix-ins.

    Michele, I am so proud of you and what you do for all pets, but especially, for shelters and rescue groups.

    Just to give you an update on Copley, we have now been together for almost 4 months. He is still barking a lot outdoors, but, I am seeing improvement, and I can even get him to walk off-leash on our property. He has been especially trustworthy on our driveway, which pleases me to no-end.

    Darrell’s best friend met Copley yesterday and the visit was very successful, but, it may have been because Darrell’s friend is a dog owner, so I am sure Copley smelled that all over him and felt that he was safe to be around.

    Also, I purchased new floor fans for the living room and bedroom. Copley has become addicted to the breeze. It is so funny to watch Copley in front of the fan, he’s either stretching, napping or on his back twitching. I know he’s okay, but it looks like he has a jolt of electricity going down his spine when he lays on his back. As soon as I get some cute pictures, I will post them on Facebook.

  • Debra

    I hope you get enough comments to reach your goal. We have 2 rescue dogs at our house 🙂

  • Lisa

    Good for you Michele! I saw someone got all crazy on FB about this contest. I feed my cat Hill’s y/d, just like you do too and I know all animal shelters need assistance. I prefer no kill shelters, but I do understand when some put down sick and injured pets. It’s sad. What we really need to do is spay/neuter and take care of our pets and then we wouldn’t have to worry about a pet over population. Thank you.

  • Laura

    Good job Hill’s and Pet News and Views.

  • Ginger

    I don’t really have very much personal experience with shelters except for my local Greater Birmingham Humane Society. That’s one of the few that I’ve been to. I adopted my cat from there so they’ll always be special to me.

  • Cheryl

    I feed my dogs Hill’s and am glad they are donating to AC&C.

  • Amy

    Thanks PNAV for all you do to help the animals.

  • Georgina

    My favorite animal shelter is the ASPCA. They also have come a long way.

  • Larry

    My favorite shelter is ASPCA. They have also come a long way.

  • HP

    Great that this is happening to help x

  • John Cause

    Hi Michele,
    Thanks to Hill’s for their generosity and sponsorship!
    Our cat & dog are rescues. Miss Kitty came from B’ham ASPCA and Lucy I found where she was dumped.
    My favorite shelter is Pell City ASPCA in Alabama.

  • Robert

    I saw the person on FB too. Sorry Michele, don’t take it to heart. You did the right thing by stating your case and then stating that you will not continue going back and forth. And my favorite shelter is Bideawee in NYC. I know you did a contest with them in the past. They do such great work and their follow up is wonderful.

  • Ralph

    Great job Michele and Hill’s. Every animal deserves to be loved.

  • Susan

    Love what you are doing with PNAV Michele! Great helping shelter animals. Keep it up.

  • Scott

    My favorite is Best Friends. They do such great work in adoption, TNR, and education.

  • Erin

    NOAH (Northwest Organization for Animal Help) is a wonderful adoption and spay/neuter center in Washington state.

  • Nancy

    We love A Different Breed Animal Rescue in Dallas: http://www.adifferentbreed.org

  • Margarita

    Angels with Paws in Lakewood, CO, is great.

  • Lucy

    Jersey Animal Coalition in South Orange/Maplewood, NJ.

  • Lola

    Mount Pleasant Animal Shelter in East Hanover, NJ, does a wonderful job of pairing pets with people.

  • Nia

    ASPCA in NYC is my favorite animal shelter and lobbying group.

  • Will

    I love St. Hubert’s in Madison, NJ. I adopted a dog from there about 7 years ago.

  • Shuli

    Love St. Huberts too.

  • Shuli

    Mount Pleasant in East Hanover deserves a shout out for all the wonderful things they do to help animals.

  • Harry

    I’m also a Mount Pleasant fan.

  • Meredith

    Great site Michele and good cause. I love Bidewee.

  • David

    Good job Michele and thank you. Hill’s nice to read about big companies doing good.

  • Victoria

    I feed my two boxers Hill’s adult food. They love it.

  • Fred

    My cat comes from St. Huberts in Madison, NJ.

  • Dan

    As your other readers said, you are doing a great service helping animal shelters. I wish all shelters had enough resources. It’s such a beneficial thing you are doing.

  • Ann

    yay Michele and yay Hill’s. I was pleased to learn that Hill’s donates so much food nationwide.

  • Adam

    Good for you Michele. I like how you are using your blog to help others. That what others should be doing too. Great job. And I feed my Dalmatian Hill’s

  • Joseph

    I favor Mount Pleasant in East Hanover, NJ. They sure could use additional food and supplies.

  • Mary

    What makes a rescue special are the volunteers and the workers who do such a good job presenting and caring for the animals in their care.

  • Kim O

    Great article Michele! My favourite shelter is Cat Shelter Felix in Serbia and The Blind Cat Rescue and Sanctuary in North Carolina, US.

  • George

    St. Huberts is my favorite because that is where I adopted my pit/boxer mix.

  • Chris

    Amazing stuff you’re helping facilitate, Michele! Rescue is one of the best ways for animals to find homes because I’ve noticed that the rescuers are very picky about who they place animals with, and that benefits everyone in the end.

  • Zavier

    “Since 2002, Hill’s has donated more than $240 million worth of Science Diet brand foods to nearly 1,000 animal shelters, nationwide.” Every pet food company should do the same–especially the big ones. It generates good will. Thanks for your blog and thank you Hill’s.

  • Lesley

    AC&C does euthanize and I wish they and other shelters didn’t, but I’m sure they can use the food. So, I think you are doing the right thing by helping.

  • Carol Hupp

    thank you Hills for all you do for the animals!!!

  • Roberta

    Nebraska No Kill Canine Rescue in Lincoln has great volunteers.Thanks Hill’s.

  • Kelly

    My favorite shelter is Bideawee in NYC because my dog comes from there and he was well cared for while he was seeking his forever home.

  • MaryLee

    My dog, Ginger, a golden retriever was rescued at my local shelter, and she is a purebred. A lot of people don’t realize that there is gold to be found at animal shelters. About 20% of dogs at shelters are purebreeds. It’s better to go to a shelter than a breeder. Good job Michele for helping shelter animals. And great job to Hill’s.

  • Irene

    Keep up the good work. I saw that nasty post on FB. yes, AC&C does euthanize, and I wish they didn’t. However, it is hard to place thousands of dogs and cats each year. That woman on FB should be yelling at the people who dump their dogs and cats, who don’t spay/neuter their pets, and who don’t seem to care. That is where her anger should be. Thanks Michele for all you do to help animals.

  • Correction: The name of the organization is Animal Care & Control of NYC, not Animal Care & Coalition.

  • Debra

    My cats eat Hill’s adult formula and they are doing well. Glad to help out with a comment.

  • Katherine

    I adopted my dog at a Greyhound rescue. All rescues and shelters work so hard and the need is so great. So thank you Hill’s.

  • Jake

    Helping 6 million pets find homes. That is wonderful.

  • Sarah

    I got my two cats from Jersey Animal Coalition in South Orange, NJ.–your hometown.

  • We have supported PurrEver Ranch Sanctuary in Tennessee. Rita cares for older and special needs cats and has sacrificed her own health and well being for the cats.

  • Edwin J. McGrath

    Thank you Hill’s,AC&C and Michelle for all you do

  • Buffy

    We got to support all animals in need no matter how!!! Thanks Michelle for all you do!!!

  • Lori Smith

    It’s an honor and a pleasure to work with Michele on this effort for AC&C. The sole purpose and goal of this partnership is to provide homeless pets with a good meal. We don’t want any pet to go hungry and ultimately hope to help these pets have a better chance of finding their forever home. HPN

  • Dusty Debandi

    Tennessee Bloodhound rescue center rescues bloodhounds and find forever homes for them and is greatly understaffed and under financed. Thank you Hill’s for all that you do and for supporting the many animals that you help to feed. Also, mucho thanks to Michele for all of your hard work.

  • June

    I got my dog from JAC–Jersey Animal Coalition.

  • Fiona

    Leaving a comment and hoping that other companies do the same–donate to their local shelters and shelters across the country.

  • sue mcguey

    The shelter of my choice is my local one….Brampton Animal Shelter…Ontario….Canada
    Since living in Brampton my dogs have come from there plus, two dog rescues! Thank you Hill’s for giving much needed support!~

  • Lisa

    You go girl!. Yay for you. You’ve got a lot of support from so many of us. Thanks for all you do Michele and thanks to Hill’s!

  • Danuta

    6 million pets find new homes. Great help for the animals.

  • DogGirl

    Thanks Hill’s for donating to NYC ACC.

  • Thank You for supporting Rescue Efforts! We hope NYC ACC goes No Kill!

  • Steven Biggio

    Whatcom County (WA) Humane Society is expanding into a new facility, thanks to an anonymous donor who gave them 1.5 million dollars. I believe this is the same donor that raised the reward for the senseless and horrific murder of one German Shepard puppy and the brutal beating of his sister, now named Hope, from $500 to $5000.
    The new building will have a cage free shelter for cats, and bigger and better areas for dogs, including a Clinic to treat strays. The Vets now work in a space the size of a closet.
    Thank You.
    I grew up in Wantagh, LI and remember that the Nixon’s had Checkers buried in the Bideawee Pet Cemetary near Wantagh H.S., keep up the good work Michele.
    There ARE good people in this world. Too bad there aren’t enough.
    Peace,
    Steve and Meow-Meow, (my rescue I had to have grace my house. My others live on friends farms and property out in the County in Forever homes).

  • Toby

    Thanks to Hill’s for the great work they are doing. You deserve a medal too Michele.

  • Carrie

    I vote for St. Hubert’s as being a great shelter. The volunteers are like family, and the staff treats us well.

  • I try and help out with Gulf Coast Cocker Spaniel Rescue, Oldies but Goodies Cocker Spaniel Rescue, and Camp Cocker Rescue as much as I can in spreading the word. As cockers age, so many are neglected or abandoned and these groups give so much to help.

  • Dalia Hettfield

    I Love Animals so much and I try to do my best and help everyday. I Love the Associations and shelters that help them. They are my HEROES, because they are humble and sometimes people don’t even know who they are.
    Thank You so much from the bottom of my Heart for everything you do. I Love You all!!!
    Have a very Blessed day for you, yours, and everybody here and everywhere!!!
    Much Love, Light, Gratitude
    B.D♥

  • I know of several great rescue organizations in my community and the people who work tirelessly for the sake of the dogs. I have friends all working with Homeward Bound, Peppertree, and the Dog House in upstate NY, and I applaud them all.

  • We have three great shelters in Pittsburgh – Animal Friends, Animal Rescue League and Western PA Humane Society. I guess if I had to choose just one it would be Animal Friends because I volunteered there when I was in grad school and adopted one of my cats while I was there. Thanks to Hill for their donation!

  • I volunteer at Phinney’s Friends to help low-income people keep their pets. phinneysfriends.org

  • Cynthia Woodcock

    Thank you for your incredible work.

  • I’m leaving a comment and hoping that other companies do the same–donate to their local shelters.

  • NayAug

    My favorite shelter is any shelter that takes care of the animals in their charge. That feeds them and gives them the medical care they need. 2000 bowls of food won’t feed every animal in need but it is a start. Thank you for working with theses companies to bring help and support to the shelters that do so much good. Thank you

  • Carrie

    I agree with NayAug. Any shelter that helps needy animals is great.

  • Judy

    My local shelter is Jersey Animal Coalition. But my favorite is St. Huberts. Both are in NJ.

  • Thank you Hills and Michele for all you do!

    My only local shelter is Cape Breton SPCA in Nova Scotia.

  • Robin

    I’m a fan of Best Friends Animal Society. They do such good work. There are a number of great shelters and rescues. I just want to see all the bad ones go away and be replaced by the excellent ones. Thanks Hill’s.

  • Justin

    Great job Michele! And thanks to Hill’s.

  • Cara

    What a wonderful site you’ve got here Michele. And I have been browsing other posts. I like the one about the products you don’t like. You are open and caring and I see you can change your mind about things.You really listen to your readers. Thanks for running this and I see other shelter contests. Great job, and I will be reading you often.

  • When animals are lost or forsaken by their owners, they ALWAYS have a home at a shelter. Pittsburgh is lucky to have three main shelters in the city, the Western Pennsylvania Humane Society, the Animal Rescue League of Western Pennsylvania and Animal Friends, and more than a dozen shelters and rescue groups in surrounding areas and counties, each of which does everything it can to find each and every animal it takes in–cats, dogs, bunnies, ferrets, birds, and even wildlife and livestock if need be–a good and loving home.

  • My favorite shelter is Best Friends in Kanab, Utah. They are a no-kill shelter and will give a pet a forever home until they are or can be adopted. I am for any shelter that is No-Kill. Every pet deserves to have a chance at a loving, caring life.

    I don’t even have words. I work so hard to get the injured and neglected animals OUT of the ACC and to REAL rescues. Some interesting and sad reading.
    Are kill shelters still necessary? Yes. Should they be run ANYTHING like the NY ACC systems? Absolutely NOT.

  • Amy

    TY Hill’s.

  • Rochelle

    Good job! I know AC&C is not the best place for animals. Yet, all shelters need food.

  • NYC Animal Care and Control is an absolute disaster area. Whereas I salute Hill’s, Julie Bank made a few lies in this article about the animals that make it out alive.

  • David Groves

    The shelter from which I acquired my pet rabbit had many rabbits from which to choose. They were well kept and handsome. We decided on Casey because he was the most affectionate of the 25 choices. When we paid our $30, the papers said we weren’t buying a rabbit, we were adopting one. Everyone there seemed to care.

  • ZaCloud

    Big thanks for the food donation; it will indeed help a lot of animals. But people need to do more research on the New York AC&C other than what they just say about themselves.

    http://johnsibley.com/2012/03/01/nycacc-moving-steadily-backwards/

    These are only very few stories out of a great many that happen, every single day there. Healthy animals are routinely misdiagnosed and killed. Severely injured animals are left to languish without treatment for weeks or months, and often die from the neglect. Rescues claim an animal and are told the pet is on hold, only for it to quickly be killed before they can get there to save it.

    While giving these animals food is important, a shelter should be held to ethical standards before being glorified in the media, and should EARN support through trustworthy practices. While animals should be fed, a death machine should not.

    If anyone cares for the animals, we need to pressure the shelter to actually do what it claims to do.

  • Elsie Au

    I used to volunteer at Paws and Claws Humane society in MN before I moved back to my country. Now, I have 5 rescued indoor cats and I and my family also take care of 9 outdoor cats that were either dumped or neglected by my neighbors. And yes, I got them all spayed/neutured and vaccinated. For me, I don’t have only one favorite shelter, any no-kill shelters with people who do care about animals are my favorite 🙂

  • Jeanne ODell

    I am not Happy with the NYCACC and the way it runs. I spend a lot of time networking the NYC animals and would love that time to do other things to make the world a better place.I also live in Western NY and Have adopted a NYCACC dog. She was to be euthanize and I made a middle of the night decision to save her. She is Happy and healthy and now a country girl!I make this comment so that maybe the animals that are now where she was gets the food. Can’t blame the animals because the city can’t run a shelter well.

  • Elaine Durbach

    What a lovely thought – the cats and dogs at the Jersey Animal Coalition Shelter, is one I support! Thanks NYC woman, from an adopted NYC-er.

  • Nyack Clancy

    Being from NYC, I know of Animal Care and Control all too well-and their shelter conditions are atrocious, in many ways- mostly from being under-staffed, and Mayor Bloomberg cut alot of funding in order to fix this city’s budget- animals certianly were not on his list of priorities.

    This shelter works with the Board of Health, and they rountinely euthanize out wildlife. Yes, “Control” means kill.

    Such as our geese, racoons, pigeons, squirrels- and rats,(like any other city), but Im not sure every other city places inhumane glue traps in public parks, where rodents will chew their own legs off trying to get free. Additionally, these barbaric glue traps get stuck on cats, dogs, birds or anything else that comes in contact with thyem, including small children.

    Animal Care and Control is not my favorite shelter in this city, though it is perhaps the one that is in the most desparate need.

    My favorite shelters are the Human Society and Bid-a-Wee.

  • nancy schetelick

    In this economy the pets are the first to go and shelter’s every where are over loaded with animals. People dispose of them like they are appliances, they can always get another one! What a crying shame. Money is tight and I am glad that shelter’s can receive much needed food for free from large companies.

  • Michele,

    I know your intentions are good here, and in fact, I wholeheartedly am in favor of food donations to the NYC ACC…the main reasin is I wouldnt trust them with any financial donations.

    Actually, I wrote a blog post about Julie Bank’s absurd comments in this article – See it here…

  • Littlestar

    Saddleback Valley Humane Society in Mission Viejo should be considered for donations, even though there is no
    “kennel” location for all the animals that are rescued and helped. They are a Foster Organization and SAVE many lives
    that would otherwise be destroyed DAILY.

  • Margie Bonn

    Feed the animals

  • nancy sands

    Just adopted another cat from the BARC shelter in Williamsburg, Brooklyn!

  • I’m from the UK so don’t think my comment will make much difference but my favourite no kill shelter is the SSPCA rehomming centre in Hamilton. Supprised Michelle to hear that Hills Science are donating food for the animals in the shelter as this company do horendous barbaric food testing on animals for their products.

  • Anything that helps the Animals like Dogs and Cart is good…I hope it catches on. Man’s best friends need a brake once in while. Thank God the Animals are not in China. They would be someones dinner. Saving Pet or any Animal is a Proud thing to do! Larry D. Grazier

  • Though I don’t live in New York State, I have used Hills’ pet food for many years for our rescue cats. All animal shelters and the animals will benefit from Hill’s generosity, regardless of location. Thanks Michele and Hills, for all you do for those cats and dogs who don’t speak human.

  • ivonne carlson maldonado

    My favorite shelter is Brighthaven in Sabastpool, Ca. they take in older and handicap animals and give them care and love until they are ready to cross the rinbow bridge, they also have adoption.

  • Hi Linda, I’ve been to Hill’s and toured their site. The dogs and cats I saw were treated well. In the story is a link to my Hill’s post.–Michele
