Who We Are
Our mission is to rescue abandoned, neglected and/or injured animals
and return them to their home or find them a new responsible home.
Volunteers are always needed for working with the dogs and cats, shelter greeter, groundskeeper, general maintenance & cleaning. Volunteer applications are available at the shelter or on our website yorkadoptapet.com. Volunteers under 14 years of age must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
We need foster homes for puppies and pregnant dogs and cats & kittens. Applications to become a foster home are available at the shelter.
We rely primarily on donations to care for our animals. Tax-deductible donations can be mailed to our address or on-line at our website.
A wish list is available at the shelter or on our website for non-monetary needs. Please call if you need further information.
Adopting a friend
York Adopt-A-Pet charges an adoption fee which varies depending upon
the care given to the animal.

Depending on their age the dogs are also given NasaGuard B vaccine for the prevention of kennel cough. A heart worm test is given for at risk dogs. All adult dogs are spayed or neutered prior to adoption. A deposit is added to the adoption fee for puppies not old enough to be altered. This fee is refunded upon proof of spaying or neutering, within a reasonable time period.
All cats/kittens receive a Felocell 3 vaccination which covers Panleukopenia (Feline distemper), Calici, rhinotracheitis and all are wormed. All cats 4 months or older are tested for FELV/FIV and vaccinated for feline leukemia. All adult cats are spayed or neutered prior to adoption.
