App allows iPhone users to search the most accurate and up-to-date list of available AC&C of NYC animals
NEW YORK, NEW YORK, April 10, 2015 – Animal Care & Control of NYC (AC&C), the only open-door animal welfare organization in NYC, today announced the launch of its new mobile app for iPhone. The app connects directly with all three Animal Care Centers in Manhattan, Brooklyn, and Staten Island and provides the only official listing of AC&C animals available for adoption.
A clear menu shows categories from which users can select: dogs, cats or rabbits. Other features include:
- Access to the most accurate, up-to-date list of available animals
- One-tap access from each photo to more pet information and descriptions
- The option to bookmark “favorite” adoptable pets
- The ability to email pre-populated inquiries directly to AC&C adoption counselors
- Contact information and directions to all three NYC Animal Care Centers
The app also lets users share pet profiles and photos with friends via Facebook, Twitter, text or email.
“Our goal at AC&C is to connect as many families as possible with loving pets who need homes,” said Risa Weinstock, AC&C’s Executive Director. “The app for iPhone makes this process easier than ever by connecting potential adopters with accurate information about our available animals in a simple, easy to use format. This will ultimately result in more adoptions and lives saved.”
At any given time, AC&C has between 250-500 animals looking for a home. By having an app that showcases each of these animals the nonprofit organization hopes to bring attention to the fact that there are so many wonderful pets available right in NYC. Animal Care Centers are open daily for adoptions, 12pm-8pm Monday through Friday and 10am-6pm Saturday and Sunday.
The AC&C app is available for free from the App Store on iPhone by searching “ACC of NYC” at www.itunes.com/appstore/. (Direct link: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/acc-of-nyc/id970913334?mt=8).
