Weather Update: Due to the blizzard, this event will be held Sunday, Feb. 10, only. Please watch ASPCA.org/onelove for the latest information.
When Hurricane Sandy hit NYC, the ASPCA’s Cruelty Intervention Advocacy (CIA) program was preparing to remove more than 30 cats from a New York City apartment. In the immediate aftermath of the storm, CIA realized that the cats’ situation could quickly develop into a full-scale crisis.
The team took swift action, rushing to the apartment to provide immediate relief. With the lives of the animals potentially at risk, the CIA team acted quickly to remove the cats and bring them to safety.
Animal lovers of NYC, that’s where you come in! This Sunday, February10, at One Love, the ASPCA is hosting a pop-up adoption event for these very special cats, and we can’t wait for you to meet them! Each of the adoptable feline cuties is so cuddly, sweet and outgoing that you’d never suspect their lives haven’t been all catnip and stuffed mice.
You can change a life just in time for Valentine’s Day by giving a kitty a brand-new family to love. And if one isn’t enough for you, consider taking home a pair of BFFs! Some of the cats are available in bonded pairs.
Is it snowing by you? Well, you could have snow all year long by adopting one of our furry snowballs! These frosty white pets promise cozier snuggles than a snowman and are guaranteed to keep you toasty on cold winter’s night. Check out their cute photos now! And remember, even if you can’t adopt a new pet today, you can help find these cuties a home by sharing their photos on your Facebook and Twitter pages.

Here’s what Briana was dealing with when she came to us: starvation, dehydration, flea infestation and, perhaps most horrifying, a deep neck wound from a collar left on so long it became embedded in her flesh.
Briana recovered beautifully over several months, revealing herself to be a mellow, soulful lady who loves to play with toys and receive attention from people.
Know anyone who’d be interested in ringing in the new year with a loyal companion like Briana? Check out her page for more info.
This resilient, amazing pup deserves to learn what a loving home is like.
You’ll never guess who loves puppy kisses as much as we do? Yep, international supermodel Irina Shayk! Irina visited our Adoption Center last year, and the impression our adorable pets made had her coming back for some more love!
During her visit, Irina met Lady, one of our sweetest senior rescue dogs. In her usual fashion, Lady’s charm and playfulness turned Irina into an instant advocate for Lady’s adoption. Along with her admiration of Lady, Irina expressed her hopes that animal lovers would make adoption their first option.
We absolutely loved having Irina at our Adoption Center, and we hope that she continues to spread her passion for pet adoption. Please share this video to show your support, too!
Okay, we admit it. Lady comes with certain limitations. She’s a senior. Her limited vision and hearing make it so she can’t live with cats or most other dogs. And well, she needs daily medication for her arthritis. WAIT! Don’t click away quite yet. Even if you can’t personally provide a home for Lady, we could really use your help in spreading the word.
Although Lady has endured a lot of suffering in her life, she adores hugs and kisses, playing tug-of-war, and—it’s true—sitting in your lap! Despite her charming personality, she has been at our shelter for nearly two years. So we’re asking all of our supporters to use social media to help Lady find a home for the holidays. Please share this flyer on your Facebook, Twitter, blog and other social networks. Together we can find her a home!
If you live in a teens-and-up household and are interested in adopting this sweet girl, please call our Adoption Center in New York City at (212) 876-7700, ext. 4900, or come meet this special Lady in person.
