Sean Casey Animal Rescue is a non-profit, no-kill animal shelter. They specialize in the rescue, care, and rehabilitation of cats, dogs, birds, reptiles, and other small mammals.
Founded in 1998, the shelter has been saving and rehoming over 2,000 animals every year. Just about any animal you can think of has come through their doors: 100-pound land tortoises, potbelly pigs, goats, and all manner of farmyard animals have all somehow ended up living in New York City!
Dozens of animals are dropped off every day by the city’s Animal Care & Control Department. The shelter also takes in injured, neglected, abandoned, and unwanted animals from private owners, shelters, zoos, and other public organizations.
Their mission is to provide all animals in their care the best quality of life possible. Many receive critical medical treatment and may need a period of rehabilitation before they can be rehomed or released back into the wild.
In addition to their comprehensive adoption program, Sean Casey Animal Rescue is committed to impacting as many lives as possible through community education and support.

These issues are correctable! Your dog isn't broken, they're just damaged. You can fix them with enough love, patience, and a good training plan.
During the COVID-19 pandemic, finding good dog trainers can be hard. Like everything else, dog training is moving only. but there are great online dog trainers that are proven to work and can help get your new pup on the right path.
