California residents will soon be able to enjoy a trend that's already popular in Japan—cat cafes! Two of these cute cafes, where people can savor their coffee while watching playful kittens, are set to open in Oakland and San Francisco by the end of the year.
The new cat cafes will not only add an extra shot of adorable to one’s afternoon coffee break, but also help more felines find their forever homes by bringing confident shelter cats out into the public eye. Don’t worry about receiving a side of hairballs with your latte; food preparation and the kitten play area will be kept completely separate.
There are numerous health benefits of pet ownership, so a little kitten pick-me-up is the perfect complement to an afternoon coffee break. The increased exposure these shelter cats receive will help them and other homeless felines find homes.
Helping pets at our Manhattan Adoption Center find loving homes takes time—and a little bit of luck. That’s why we’d love for you to help us spread the word about four cute pets who have spent quite a while waiting to find their forever homes: Teresa, Schwinn, Ghost and Romeo!
By sharing one of our fun St. Patrick’s Day-themed photos on your social networks, you’ll help these dogs and cats move one step closer to finding their pot of gold—a family to call their very own!
Tiny pup Karma would love to meet you. In fact, Karma loves every person she meets! She’d enjoy nothing more than to spend a nice long afternoon on the couch curled up in your lap.
Karma also likes to meet other dogs. She’d do best in a home with kids 10-and-up. Adopt Karma today!
Karmais 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 Karma, please visit her page.

Staff favorite dog Baby is still looking for her forever home! She’s come a long way since she was found tied to a tree in July 2012, winning the hearts of everyone she meets with her abundant kisses and cuddly nature. Baby would love to be your constant companion and doesn’t like to be left along for long hours. In the past, adopters have been unable to spend the time with Baby that she needs, leading her to exhibit negative behaviors associated with separation anxiety. However, exercise seems to help her overcome her fear of being alone, and she would gladly accompany you on a morning run or afternoon stroll.
The adorable pups, Bam Bam, Nautica and Wishbone, made their small-screen debut alongside hosts Kathie Lee and Hoda and U.S. slopestyle ski competitors Joss Christensen, Gus Kenworthy and Nick Goepper—recent gold, silver and bronze medalists, respectively.
We’re thrilled that all three dogs have started their new lives as beloved pets! Stay tuned for updates to come as Bam Bam, Nautica and Wishbone settle into their new homes.
