Celebrate New Animal Shelter Coming to the Bronx!

Join NYCLASS as we celebrate Mayor de Blasio's allocation of $10 million in the City's budget to build new full service animal shelters in the Bronx and Queens! The animal advocacy community has been working for this change for years and are excited to see this first step towards building and maintaining full service animal shelters in every borough, so all New Yorkers have easier access to bring a furry friend into their family. Come celebrate this victory for NYC's homeless animals!

*Please note:* Make a right on the park path and you'll see the dog run! For directions, please click here. Please RSVP below. Canine companions are welcome to attend, too!

Nonhuman Rights Project Screening of Unlocking the Cage

Join the Nonhuman Rights Project screening of Unlocking the Cage from May 25th-June 7th.

"They used to bark at me when I walked into the courtroom,” says animal rights attorney Steven Wise, founder of the Nonhuman Rights Project. It’s Wise’s unorthodox position that cognitively complex animals (e.g. chimpanzees, whales, dolphins, elephants) should be granted personhood rights that would protect them from abuse. The world-renowned documentary team of Chris Hegedus and D.A. Pennebaker (DONT LOOK BACK, THE WAR ROOM, STARTUP.COM) captures Wise’s progress: from the halls of academia to animal sanctuaries and zoos, and finally into the courtrooms where he makes a compelling case for clients Merlin, Kiko, Hercules, Leo, and Tommy. This is a touching, funny and legally provocative movie: Given that the Supreme Court has ruled that corporations are people, why not chimps?

*Steve, Chris, and DA will participate in Q&As after the 7 p.m. screenings on May 25th, May 26th, and May 27th and after the 4:40 p.m. screening on May 28th.*

 Please RSVP on the Nonhuman Rights' Facebook page here.
