NY Giant Geoff Schwartz Helps Shelter Dogs Get a New Start in the New Year


Sponsors Adoption Fees of Several Dogs at Animal Care & Control of NYC (AC&C)

NEW YORK, January 30, 2015 – Geoff Schwartz, offensive lineman for the New York Giants and big time pet lover, is helping a bunch of dogs at Animal Care & Control of NYC (AC&C)  get a new start this new year by sponsoring their adoption fees. The big game may not be till Sunday, but AC&C already has its MVP.

“A giant thank you to Geoff Schwartz for being one of New York’s Kindest,” said AC&C Executive Director Risa Weinstock. “We hope his support will help not only the sponsored dogs, but countless other shelter animals, find loving homes as 2015 kicks off.”

“I grew up with some great dogs,” said Geoff Schwartz. “Today, Oslo @OsloPepperoni is my best buddy.  I’m happy to be able to bring the same joy I’ve experienced to other families.”

AC&C adoptions include vaccinations, a pre-registered microchip, spay/neuter, a free office visit at a participating veterinarian and a free identification tag.

Sponsored dogs this weekend include, but are not limited to:
