Animal Mukti

Founded by Sharon Gannon and David Life, together with Janet Rienstra of Meta Records, Animal Mukti is a free spay and neuter program of the Humane Society of New York. Prior to the founding of Animal Mukti in 1999, approximately 100,000 cats and dogs in New York City died needlessly each year, 40,000 by euthanasia and the rest by neglect, abandonment and abuse. Since its founding, Animal Mukti has helped reduce the number of needless deaths by approximately 37%. The Humane Society of New York helps more than 30,000 dogs and cats annually by offering professional veterinary care 365 days a year, as well as shelter and adoption services. The Humane Society has long been noted for its innovative, highly individualized approach to animal care. The quality of each animal’s life is paramount and the Humane Society is dedicated to finding just the right, responsible and reliable home for each animal in its care. The Animal Mukti program relies on donations to continue offering free spay/neuter services to all. For more information or to make a donation, please go to
