Jane Hoffman, with her cat Zoey, one of her five rescue animals (2 cat and 3 dogs). Jane is native New Yorker, she has a J.D. from Brooklyn Law School, an M.L.S. from Long Island University and a B.A. An attorney, formerly with the Wall Street firm Simpson Thacher and Bartlett, and was in private practice specializing in taxation, executive compensation and estate planning. She was also a senior consultant at Handy Associates, a management consulting firm, working on mergers and acquisitions.
She helped found the Mayor's Alliance for NYC's Animals (the Alliance) in 2002 and has served as president and chair of the board of directors ever since. The Alliance was created to work with the City of New York to apply creative, targeted solutions to NYC’s homeless animal crisis. Working pursuant to a 10-Year Strategic Plan (2005-2014), and with 150+ rescue groups and shelters that now participate in the Alliance (ranging from the ASCPA, a founding member, to small neighborhood-based rescue groups), the Alliance has succeeded in reducing euthanasia at our shelters.
