New York City has opened a temporary shelter in what used to be a vacant warehouse in Ocean Hill Brooklyn. The facility has some 20.000 sq/ft and with capacity for up to 700 pets.

The facility will be run by a group of specialist from the   American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals. As of last week there were near 150 animals already in the shelter and hundreds more were expected. Owners can board their pets for up to 30 days free of charge.

Veterinarians from NY and other parts of the country check every pet brought in. They are helped by pet behaviorist that check and label each pet by their level of "friendliness".

ASPCA officials said they were able to negotiate with the landlord a rental fee of $20.000 per month for the space and celebrity chef Rachel Ray had donated $500.000 in cash and food supplies from her pets food line.

The shelter has currently 48 animals that arrived without owner, mostly transferred from other shelters.

If you need help boarding your pet or need more info about this initiative please contact the ASPCA or check more info here
