Cat Adoption / December 15, 2021

Animal Care Centers of NYC has hundreds of animals available for adoption every day. If you are looking to add an awesome dog, cat or rabbit to your family, ACC is the right place to find your new furry friend. We have been matching pets with people for over 17 years, and when you visit one of our Care Centers, our staff and volunteers will work with you to try to find your perfect loyal companion.

Before adopting, we suggest you do your research on pet care and the right animal for your family, as this is a long-term decision. ACC has a wide variety of flyers available for your review and education.

If you are looking for a particular breed, please be sure to fill out a Breed Request Form, Cat or Dog, and we will contact you by e-mail when your requested pure-bred dog or cat comes to one of our Care Centers.

Please note that we cannot guarantee that we will find what you are looking for since special breeds do get adopted very quickly at our Care Centers.
