Individuals from all over New York City come to Animal Care Centers every day of the week for reasons as diverse as reclaiming lost pets, adopting new furry family members, and getting resources to help them keep their pets in their homes.
We strive to find loving homes for homeless and abandoned cats, dogs, and rabbits, both by adopting animals directly to the public and by partnering with more than 200 dedicated animal placement organizations (our New Hope partners). Our field services division responds to calls from the public to help keep NYC communities safe and rescue animals in need, and we have facilities in all five boroughs.
There are so many ways to get involved with ACC:
Volunteering - Volunteers are a vital part of our organization, and play a huge role in caring for the animals in our care centers. Primarily, they interact with our shelter pets to provide them with exercise, attention, comfort, and socialization to reduce stress, improve their health, strengthen their trust with humans, and increase their adoptability factor.
Fostering - Tens of thousands of pets come into ACC each year. Foster parents provide a clean, safe, loving environment for homeless pets and help them prepare to find a new forever home. After receiving foster care, these pets are healthier and happier, which means they are well-prepared to be adopted by a loving family.
Donating - There are a number of convenient options for making your gift to ACC. Your donation will help ACC continue to find permanent loving homes for the thousands of animals we rescue each year.
Join us in our mission to end animal homelessness in NYC!
