What could be better than finding your life-long match? On the heels of Valentine’s Day, the ASPCA has teamed up with OkCupid and Draftfcb New York to help single pets find their perfect companions! Several of our adorable adoptable cats and dogs now have their very own profiles on the well-known dating site.
Each OkCupid pet profile incorporates our Meet Your Match® program which evaluates the animal’s personality and matches it to an adopter’s preferences.
If you're a member of OkCupid, keep your eyes out for our furry singles looking for love. If not, you can still check out the dating profiles of Karma, Bella, Mona and Florsheim. You’re not going to believe how cute they are!

Lights, camera, action! If you watched NBC’s Today Show this morning, you probably saw a segment featuring three newly famous ASPCA adoptable dogs: Wishbone, Nautica and Bam Bam.
These adorable pups made their TV debut for a segment with hosts Kathie Lee and Hoda, and taste-tested homemade dog meals from veterinarian and talk-show host Dr. Katy Nelson. They were joined by U.S. slopestyle ski competitors Joss Christensen, Gus Kenworthy, Nick Goepper—recent gold, silver and bronze medalists, respectively.
Bart is a friendly guy who likes a balanced lifestyle. He enjoys giving and receiving affection on occasion, but he also enjoys quality alone time camped out on his favorite comfy chair or couch cushion.
This special cat has been under our care for more than two years! While he’s uncomfortable with extensive handling in the shelter environment, we think he’ll loosen up once he’s living large in his new forever home. He’d prefer to be the only pet in your home, and will get along fine with teens 13-and-up. Adopt Bart today!
Bart is available for adoption at the ASPCA Adoption Center. If you are interested in adopting please call our Adoptions department in New York City at (212) 876-7700 ext. 4120. To learn more about Bart, please visit his page.

Recently, we told you about Baby, an adorable pup who has been in our care for more than a year and a half. This sweet dog, a victim of animal cruelty, has come a long way since we first met her, and she’s still waiting to find a loving home.
In July 2012, a Good Samaritan found Baby tied to a tree, abandoned in the summer heat. Fortunately, they contacted the ASPCA, and Baby began her road to recovery that day at the ASPCA Animal Hospital.
Dr. Bonnie Wong, the ASPCA veterinarian who treated Baby, recalls that she had a severe neck wound consistent with having a chain embedded in her neck for a long period of time. Baby’s body was in poor condition; she had a skin infection and scars on her face where it appeared other dogs had attacked her. After extensive treatment, including repetitive wound care and antibiotic treatments for her skin, Baby’s condition improved and she was ready for adoption.
Since then, Baby has waited and waited for someone to take her home. In the time she’s spent at our Adoption Center, our staff has grown immensely fond of this “oversized lap dog.” She is incredibly friendly and loyal, and we can’t wait until she has a permanent place to call home.
If you’re interested adopting Baby, please call our Adoptions department in New York City at (212) 876-7700 ext. 4120. To learn more about Baby, please visit her page.
Every day the ASPCA partners with committed individuals and groups working tirelessly to save the lives of more animals in need. Many of these heroes work behind the scenes, rarely getting the acknowledgement they deserve.
Today, however, we have a unique opportunity to not only publicly thank and recognize one of our closest partners, Jane Hoffman of the Mayor’s Alliance, but also help her organization win a $50,000 grant. Earlier this year, we nominated Jane, founding member of the Mayor's Alliance for NYC's Animals and current president and chair of their board of directors, for a unite4:good humanitarian award. We were thrilled to learn recently that she was named a finalist, and as such will receive at least a $25,000 grant, but she is now relying on public votes to receive the top honor, the Unite4:Humanity Inspiration Award.
We nominated Jane because we are keenly aware of her hard work and unwavering dedication to the Mayor’s Alliance, which was established to apply creative, targeted solutions to NYC’s homeless animal crisis. Under Jane’s leadership, the Alliance is making strong headway on increasing adoptions; increasing access to spay/neuter, micro-chipping, and dog licensing services; and increasing awareness of animal shelters and rescue groups and the animals in their care. In other words, if New York animals are our best friends, Jane Hoffman may be theirs.
