Have you been considering adding a furry friend (or two!) to your family? Now is your chance! This Saturday, August 15, hundreds of shelters nationwide will participate in an exciting “Clear the Shelters” event. Participating organizations will reduce or completely waive their adoption fees to help connect adoptable animals in their care with safe and loving homes.
Our Adoption Center, located in New York City, will take part in the event, waiving all adoption fees for dogs and cats Saturday.
The ASPCA has also provided support for the event in the form of grant funding to a select number of participating organizations across the country. “Clear the Shelters” is sponsored by the NBCUniversal-Owned Television Stations division of NBC Universal and Telemundo.
We look forward to hearing the many happy stories that will result from this exciting event. Please help us Clear the Shelters by finding a participating shelter near you and giving a homeless pet a second chance.
Kiki is a lovable, four-year-old American Bulldog available for adoption. This bundle of energy loves to explore the world around him, and is especially happy to have the freedom and space to run around when he’s outdoors. When he’s out for a walk, Kiki will sometimes pull on the leash, so he needs an adopter who can handle a little bit of weight. As excited as Kiki is to investigate his environment, he doesn’t always enjoy being around other dogs and will likely never be a dog park dog.
When Kiki is at home, he loves to laze around with his toys. He doesn’t always like to share them, but our Behavior specialists can give his adopter some tips on how to encourage communal toy time. Kiki does well with kids and has lived with young human siblings before. He would do best in a home with kids 10 years of age or older. Adopt Kiki today!
Kiki is available for adoption at the ASPCA Adoption Center. If you are interested in adopting Kiki, please call our Adoptions Department in New York City at (212) 876-7700 ext. 4120.
This black-and-white beauty is Teodora, a sweet and playful cat who is ready to be an excellent partner-in-crime to a lucky adopter. Teodora loves her friends and has no problem showing lots of affection, but she’s also independent and enjoys her stints of solitude. Teodora can be a little skeptical of new company, but if strangers approach her slowly and extend a hand for her to sniff, she usually warms up pretty quickly. She loves to play with feather toys, and enjoys a good scratch on her head and chin, but isn’t crazy about back or belly rubs.
Teodora would do best in the home of an experienced cat adopter with kids 14 or older. She would prefer to be the only cat in the home. Adopt Teodora today!
Teodora is available for adoption at the ASPCA Adoption Center. If you are interested in adopting Teodora, please call our Adoptions Department in New York City at (212) 876-7700 ext. 4120.
Have you ever considered adopting a kitten? Summer is a great time to do so! During feline breeding season, commonly known as kitten season, animal shelters experience an influx of cats and kittens in need of loving homes. The ASPCA Adoption Center in New York City currently has dozens of kittens available for adoption. To help match these adorable felines with loving adopters, the Adoption Center is holding a Summer Adoption Purr-motion from Friday, July 24 to Monday, September 7. Read all of the exciting details below:
Weekdays: $50 adoption fee for kittens under five months, $35 adoption fee for kittens five months to one year; cats over one year are free.
Weekends: $75 for kittens under five months, $50 for kittens five months to 3-year-old cats.
We will continue our BOGO (or, adopt a kitten, take home a second kitten with no adoption fee) promotion during this time.
We hope you’ll consider adopting a kitten (or two) of your own this summer! If you are not in New York City, please use our shelter finder to find adoptable pets in your area.
Please note: while we have many kittens waiting to find loving homes, the individual kittens pictured here are not necessarily available for adoption.
Bear is a two-year-old Akita/Shepherd mix who is ready for a new home. This tender-hearted pup has a soft spot for his friends and loves to cuddle up in the laps of people he knows. It can sometimes take Bear a little while to warm up to new people (particularly men) but he is quick to make a new buddy after a proper introduction.
In 2012, Bear was involved in a car accident that left him with a serious leg injury. Although the leg was amputated, Bear’s three strong stems are quick to take this curious little adventurer anywhere his heart desires. Since he’s always excited to discover new things, Bear would do best with an adopter who can handle some light pulling during a walk. Like most of us, Bear can get uncomfortable when he’s interrupted during a meal or chewing on a toy, but our trainers have some special tips on how you can encourage him to share. Adopt Bear today!
Bear is available for adoption at the ASPCA Adoption Center. If you are interested in adopting Bear, please call our Adoptions Department in New York City at (212) 876-7700 ext. 4120.
