Many dogs and cats may need homes since shelters and rescues had to close or have limited staff. First, sit down and make this a family decision and recognize that kids of all ages may say they will do the work to care for a per but in reality Parent(s) have to ultimately take responsibility for the care of any animal: Do you have the time? What benefits do you see for all your children? Can your family afford the costs of caring for a pet: food, medical and other items. Make sure you explore the responsibilities of taking on a puppy or kitten, an untrained or trained pet, and what is involved? Also realize everyone gets attached to a pet and they may get sick or die at one point which will impact your family. That is life but given the age of your children and the age of the pet exploring this issue as adults is important.
Focus on positive life experiences and recognize each child’s unique temperament which will enhance the mental and social wellbeing of everyone in your family.

is honored at hotel’s annual event
NEW YORK, NY – (July 7, 2015) - Every year The Algonquin Hotel honors its most famous resident, Matilda III, The Algonquin Cat, with a celebration. This year the event will be held on Wednesday, August 5,from 5:00PM – 7:30PM in the hotel’s iconic lobby. The Algonquin will honor members of NYPD’s Animal Cruelty Investigation Squad and the event will feature a cat fashion show by Ada Nieves: “A Feline Salute to NYC’s First Responders.” Ada Nieves is a certified animal fashion designer by the Fashion Institute of Technology of New York City. She will stage the show in the hotel’s Oak Room and the fashions will feature costumes inspired by the city’s Police and Fire Departments.
Guests attending will be required to make a $30 donation for entrance. 100% of the proceeds will benefit the Mayor’s Alliance for New York City’s Animals. The Mayor’s Alliance will have an on-site mobile adoption unit parked in front of the hotel from 3:00PM – 7:00PM. The $30 donation allows all guests access to the fashion show and includes a reception with special hors d’oeuvres. Additional funds will be raised throughout the evening with raffle prizes, including a variety of pet products. The grand prize is a custom-designed cat tree house, created by Pet Tree Houses. (It’s truly the cat’s meow.)
About The Algonquin Cat:
“Everyone knows that season four of Scandal is set to premiere tonight on ABC – and that everyone is desperate to know where Olivia Pope jetted off to. But there’s an even bigger scandal out there that the ASPCA wants to uncover: pet homelessness. In fact, the biggest scandal of all is that there are millions of pets in shelters across this country who just want a loving home. Well, the ASPCA wants to fix that.
By creating these six e-cards featuring famous lines from the show with animals available for adoption right now at the ASPCA Adoption Center, the organization would like to remind everyone to make pet adoption their first option and help get a handle on the number of homeless animals waiting in shelters for loving homes.”

About Matilda: The longstanding tradition of having a “house feline” at The Algonquin began in the 1930s, when hotel owner Frank Case took in a stray. The first seven Algonquin cats were males, all named Hamlet, while subsequent felines have been females, all named Matilda. The current Matilda has reigned since December 2010, welcoming guests at the Front Desk, while still maintaining her modest if slightly haughty style. She is a beautiful Ragdoll adult cat who never reveals her age.
