Mother's Comfort Project, Orange Ribbon Campaign & Artists with Animals Mini Print Notecards
Mother’s Comfort Project brings volunteers together for sewing sessions to create comfy and cheery beds for shelter animals, as well as catnip toys for the cats. Since its inception volunteers have sewn and donated thousands of beds and toys to shelters and rescues in the Tri-State area. http://www.rational-animal.org/mother-s-comfort-project.html
You do not have to come for the whole day, but we would love it if you did! We need fabric & batting cutters, toy stuffers as well as sewers!
Rational Animal's Orange Ribbon for Animals campaign, http://www.rational-animal.org/orange-ribbon-for-animals.html , includes our Orange Ribbon for Animals and the Animal Guardian campaign. Our orange ribbon is trademarked and is the official awareness ribbon for at-risk animals in the United States. It represents support for animals who suffer from neglect, abuse and those whose lives and well-being are in jeopardy.
The Animal Guardian campaign advocates for guardianship, not ownership, of companion animals. It is part of the effort to change the common perspective of animals as property or unfeeling objects, to revering animals as sentient beings who do not exist to be used by others, but for the right to their own life; and in the case of household pets, for humans to be their guardian and companion for their entire lives.
Our "Artists for Animals" mini print notecards feature the beautiful photography of fine art photographers represented by Morrison Hotel Gallery. Each photographer generously donated their photographs to support Rational Animal's campaigns for at-risk animals. Featured are these artists in intimate moments with their animal friends: John Lennon, Bridget Bardot, Neil Young, David Bowie, Robert Plant, Billie Holiday, Bob Dylan, Patti Smith, Nelly and The Beatles. http://rationalanimal.storenvy.com/products/6812197-artists-with-animals-mini-print-notecards For more information about Rational Animal and our other campaigns, please visit www.rational-animal.org Please consider supporting Rational Animal by making a donation, or purchasing items in our store, http://rationalanimal.storenvy.com/. All proceeds go directly to support our projects.

Keeper Talks are scheduled on a day-by-day basis. Check the board next to the wall map in the Main Lobby for details.
A walrus sucks herring out of a giant straw, a sea otter plays a toy retrieve game for a scrumptious prize, and penguins bob for fish. Please note that feeding times are subject to change on a daily basis, based on the animals' needs. Check the schedule at the Aquarium's main entrance to confirm times.
Translate for a penguin.What are the penguins braying about? It’s likely they're either saying “Here I am!” “Why’d you do that!” or “Hello, friend!” Do the octopus wave? The giant Pacific octopus is an eight-armed hunter and master of camouflage who uses the suction cups of his tentacles to grab prey.
Discover the real Mr. Moms. For seahorses, it is the males that carry the babies. With tails entwined, the female seahorse deposits her eggs into her mate’s pouch.
Saving Penguins: The Wildlife Conservation Society saves penguins and their habitats, which are threatened by pollution—such as from oil spills—and coastal development. WCS conservationists also work to prevent excessive penguin egg and guano collection, and to create sustainable alternatives to fishing when it imperils the birds’ main food sources. http://www.nyaquarium.com/contact-us.aspx

New York-Presbyterian Hospital Animal Assisted Therapy
Five campuses in New York
See link below for complete info/
Dogs, Man's best friend plays an important role on our Inpatient Rehabilitation Units. The Therapeutic Recreation department at NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital works closely with the Volunteer Department, The Delta Society and the Good Dog Foundation to provide teams of trained dogs to visit patients as part of a therapeutic intervention.
Dogs are now learning to be facilitators in therapeutic settings. Research on the health benefits of animals is extensive and the results are being put to good use. They are shown to increase social and verbal interaction, to help maintain function and improve ability to perform activities of daily living among the elderly.
They has also been shown to decrease loneliness in residents of long term care facilities, enhances relaxation, and the most striking finding is that it lowers blood pressure.
Dogs can give someone a reason to take a walk, improve balance, retrieve objects, sit for a good brushing, or just provide companionship, non-judgmental support, and a fun-loving attitude. We hope to welcome many more visits from our new friends and old friends alike! Locations, numbers: http://nyp.org/services/rehabmed/contact.html

PepperTree Dog Adoption Clinic
Latham Petco, 664 New Loudon Rd, Latham, NY 12110
The primary purpose of Peppertree is to help find homes for dogs in need who represent the character and temperament commonly associated with Golden Retrievers friendliness, intelligence and a peaceful, loving nature. Those of us who formed Peppertree worked for many years with a Golden rescue group, GRROWLS-NY, which continues to assist Goldens and almost-Goldens in upstate New York. http://www.peppertree.org/adoptinfo.php
In the course of this work, we became increasingly aware of the many Golden mixes, Golden "wannabes" and the utterly non-Golden dogs who exhibit these same wonderful characteristics and who very much deserve a second chance. Since GRROWLS is there for the purebred and almost-purebred, we felt that a refuge was needed for the "others of Golden spirit.
