Animal Care & Control of NYC (AC&C) is one of the largest animal welfare organizations in the country, taking in approximately 30,000 animals each year. AC&C is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit that rescues, cares for and finds loving homes for animals throughout the five boroughs. AC&C has a contract with the City of New York to be an open-admissions organization, which means it never turns away any homeless, abandoned, injured or sick animal in need of help, including cats, dogs, rabbits, small mammals, reptiles, birds, farm animals and wildlife. It is the only organization in NYC with this unique responsibility. For more information, please visit our web site.
AC&C has hundreds of animals available for adoption every day! If you are looking to add a wonderful dog, cat or rabbit to your family, AC&C is the right place to find your new furry friend. We encourage you to learn more about the adoption process, download an adoption application, and visit one of our three Adoption Centers:

New York, NY 10029
Brooklyn Animal Care Center

If you can open your home temporarily to a cat or dog in need, please consider becoming a foster volunteer with AC&C! We regularly take in nursing moms with babies, kittens without mothers, and injured and ill animals. These animals may need extra TLC to get healthy and ready for adoption. The AC&C Foster program takes animals out of the shelter environment and places them into the homes of caring individuals. Time commitment is flexible! Sign up for a foster orientation to learn more.
