Fantasy Photo Fun Time!

Did you know that in 2020, TASP spent over $35,000 helping 233 animals who would have otherwise been sent to the shelter or worse? The donations we receive at our Fantasy Pet Photo clinics are a vital part of our fundraising. All proceeds of our photo clinics go 100% to the care of the region’s animals in crisis; allowing us to keep saving needy pets of all species when they need us most.

Visit our Events Calendar page to find the photo clinic nearest to you. For a $10 donation, take home a framed keepsake photo of your pet against one of over twenty different digital backgrounds.


Personalized Dog Mom Mother’s Day Shirt!

Robin sez, “Get a load of the extra-neat T-Shirt Mom got for Mother’s Day! Available in just about any color of the rainbow, Mom‘s royal blue one shows off her pretty red hair, don’t ya think? And check it out! The shirt spells, “Mom,” the way I would spell it…..with a big pawprint heart! And do ya see my name written across that heart? Yep, that’s the way I wanna always be for my Mom, written across her heart.

Sending a big shout out to all of you who purchased one of these ultra-cool shirts for Mother’s Day gifts! And thanks to the kindness of Sixty4DesignStudio, you can still get a T-shirt like this for YOUR Mom, or a special Mom in your life. For just $20, they’ll send you a shirt like this in the color of your choice, with the name or names of Mom’s kid(s) written across the heart, just like ours. Sixty4DesignStudio is continuing to donate $10 from each sale directly to the TASP General Operations account so TASP can keep on helping Moms (and Dads and kids, too) keep their pets safe, healthy and loved, even through tough times. So who needs a holiday to celebrate a special Mom?

Fantasy Photo Clinics – Update!

COVID lockdown may still be keeping us socially distanced, but thanks to the wonders of technology, TASP continues to keep the Fantasy Photo Fun flowing indefinitely!  

Continuing indefinitely, The Animal Support Project’s Fantasy Photo clinics are being offered in person at local Benson’s Pet Centers and also ONLINE! 

Now, if you can’t make it to Benson’s, you can order your TASP Fantasy Photos ONLINE each month, at your convenience, in the comfort of your own lockdown……and know you’re continuing to help our community’s pets stay safe and healthy while you stay safe and healthy, too!

COVID-19, Riots and The Animal Support Project….NOW WHAT?

Right now, many folks are reading this message while still in isolation or quarantine or curfew. You may be wondering how The Animal Support Project will be dealing with the changes in all of our lives brought about by the arrival of the Novel Corona Virus and the Random Acts of Crime occurring here in the Capital Region and throughout the state.

Like everyone else, TASP faces some challenges ahead.

We face a loss of revenue from having to temporarily call off our popular Fantasy Pet Photo fundraisers and our tag sales. Add to this an already-evidenced reduction in donations due to the financial stresses many of our supporters are facing after the State imposed mandatory shutdown of so many businesses in NY and then “vampires” decided to destroy what was left of local businesses.

These are realities we can’t get around……CLICK HERE TO READ MORE


The Paws2Protect FREE FLEA AND TICK CAT COLLAR event at Troy Area United Ministries was a blast!

Folks did what they had to do to get to the event to take advantage of our free Seresto cat collar offer. Free spay-neuter-vaccination vouchers were also handed out to those who needed them, too! What an awesome day! Thanks to TAUM and our volunteers for making the event a success!


TASP Tag Sale Update

WHEN’S THE NEXT TASP TAG SALE COMING?

Good question! 2019’s weather was so unpredictable, we only managed to get one extra-short tag sale produced.

This year, COVID is presenting us with a different kind of storm.

So we’ve opted to keep saving up donated goodies until the weather is clear and the virus situation is behind us. If all goes well, we’ll see y’all on the grassy knoll next to Sterup Square for a glorious Memorial Day weekend tag sale. 

In the meantime, if you know of an animal-loving local business or real estate agent who would donate an INDOOR space where we could run our tag sale, please click on CONTACT/FORMS on this home page to email us details. ASP gets so many wonderful items donated, we hate to have Mother Nature destroy them in this unpredictable Upstate New York weather. After all, that’s not helping animals, is it? An indoor venue in a high-traffic, conveniently located spot would be the ideal place for local folks to shop the TASP stash of fine donated items and help local pets when they need us most. Thanks for keeping your eyes and ears open about this for us!


9th Annual Pet Connection Pins for Pets Bowling Event – 2020 Event Postponed!

THANKS to all of you who came out to support local animal rescues (including TASP) at the 9th Annual Pet Connection Pins for Pets Bowling Event at Spare Time Family Fun Center on May 3, 2019. Unfortunately, COVID-19 has prevented this year’s Pins for Pets event until further notice. But stay tuned for updates!


Casey’s update… 1 week after surgery…

 Casey and her family needed help and TASP responded! Tax-deductible donations can be made through Razoo or PayPal. Please scroll down to the donation buttons on the left side of this page. Thanks for caring!


The Pollination Project

thank you

The Animal Support Project would like to say a sincere THANK YOU to The Pollination Project for the generous grant we were just awarded. The wonderful people at The Pollination Project understand how important our Fantasy Pet Photo fundraisers are for bringing in the cash we need for helping the animals in our community. They granted us enough money to buy a new laptop computer, software and supplies. Now we won’t have to worry about our old equipment breaking down!
