The Animal Project


The Animal Project is a 501(c)(3) non-profit animal rescue and adoption group in New York City, based in Washington Heights. It has been run by Carol Moon and volunteers for over 10 years. We are partnered with the Petco Foundation and are dedicated to finding wonderful homes for cats, kittens and sometimes the occasional rabbit. In 2018 alone, we helped find permanent homes for over 300 cats thanks to wonderful New Yorkers like you.
