Every now and then, we come across a special adoptable pet who needs a little extra help finding a home. This week, we’re shining our Adoption Spotlight on Ronny, a special cat who will make one lucky adopter very happy.
Ronny came into the ASPCA’s care in October 2013. When this sensitive guy first entered the ASPCA Animal Hospital, he was very nervous and had several health conditions requiring medical and dental care. In fact, Ronny was so anemic that he required a blood transfusion. But even while he was very sick, it didn’t take long for his sweet and loveable personality to shine through.
Ronny loves his special food and will do just about anything for a snack—he’s even learning some cool tricks such as jumping on stools and sitting on command. Ronny’s a fast learner, and he’d love to have you teach him a few more tricks.
This resilient guy prefers to have all four paws on the ground, but shows his affection with plenty of chirping and leg rubbing. He loves attention and being stroked by his favorite people! Ronny’s the kind of cat who can get along with everyone, and with the right introductions, we think he’ll become fast friends with your resident dog or cat.
This sweet boy is FIV positive, and his traumatic past left him with large scar on his neck and a few medical needs that will require lifelong care. His conditions can be well-managed with a special diet and monthly shots.
Ronny is a special cat who has been through so much and would love nothing more than to join a forever family who will love and take care of him. If you’re interested in adopting Ronny, please call our Adoptions Department in New York City at (212) 876-7700 ext. 4120. To learn more about Ronny, please visit his profile page and be sure to check out the video below to see him in action!

This handsome cat has a few special medical conditions and can be particular about his litter box, but our Behavioral team can walk you through the best ways to manage his needs. Adopt Paddy today!

Exciting changes are in store for New York City’s shelter pets this year!
Last week, the New York City Health Department and Animal Care & Control of New York City (AC&C) announced several big changes that will go a long way toward improving conditions and outcomes for homeless animals—including a new, $5 million adoption facility. The organization will receive more than $8 million in City capital funding for improvements this year.
AC&C is one of the largest animal welfare organizations in the country, taking in more than 30,000 animals from New York City’s five boroughs every year. In partnership with the City, AC&C will use the new resources to design and construct the new adoption center next to its full-service Manhattan shelter. The building will be dedicated to encouraging adoption of the shelter’s dogs, cats and rabbits.
The new funds will also go toward increasing the organization’s fleet of mobile adoption vans in Queens and the Bronx to help more animals in their own neighborhoods. Resources will also be put toward heating, air conditioning and ventilation system upgrades at AC&C’s Brooklyn Care Center to help reduce the spread of shelter diseases.
The ASPCA has invested over $1 million in grant funding for AC&C infrastructure over the past five years, and we provide continued support through the provision of spay/neuter surgeries for the organization’s shelter animals, resulting in the highest release rate the animal sheltering system has seen since its inception. We’re thrilled that this additional funding will ensure AC&C can continue to provide animals with quality care and expand its adoption efforts to help even more animals across New York City find permanent, loving homes.
"The ASPCA’s work with AC&C over the past several years to drastically reduce euthanasia rates and increase adoption numbers demonstrates how much we can accomplish for New York City’s homeless animals through diligent work and effective collaborations,” said ASPCA President and CEO Matt Bershadker. “We are grateful to Mayor de Blasio, [New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene] Commissioner Bassett, and AC&C’s Executive Director Risa Weinstock for recognizing the value of investing in our sheltering infrastructure with the goal of ending animal suffering across the city.”
We will continue to support Councilmember Paul Vallone’s efforts to establish full-service shelters in Queens and the Bronx, which will be crucial moving forward to make New York City a place where no adoptable animal dies needlessly.
