Pets at Our Shelter:
Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:Thousands of dogs, cats, puppies and kittens are adopted out each year from the ASPCA’s Adoption Center in New York City.
About Our Shelter:The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA) was the first humane society to be established in North America and is, today, one of the largest in the world. Our organization was founded by Henry Bergh in 1866 on the belief that animals are entitled to kind and respectful treatment at the hands of humans, and must be protected under the law. Headquartered in New York City, the ASPCA maintains a strong local presence, and with programs that extend our anti-cruelty mission across the country, we are recognized as a national animal welfare organization. We are a privately funded 501(c)(3) not-for-profit corporation, and proud to boast more than 1 million supporters across the country.

- You must be 21 years of age or older to adopt.
- Two forms of identification. A government issued photo ID (driver's license, state identification card, military ID, etc.) and proof of current address (A telephone, utility or cable television bill qualifies.)

- Dog adopters, we strongly encourage all members of your household to come to the Adoption Center to meet the new pet. If you already have a dog at home, it's a great idea to bring him or her along as well, so that our expert behaviorists can help you find the dog who is best suited to your current dog.
- Be sure to check your building's policy relevant to pet ownership to avoid any landlord concerns.
