Adopt a pet to help save lives
When you adopt a homeless dog or cat from a shelter or rescue group in New York City, you’re saving the life of a loving and loyal animal.

You’re also making space for other pets to find families of their own. And that’s huge. By adopting, you are part of a historic change in how our country regards pets in shelters and you’re helping to Save Them All.
