Mobile Adoption Calendar & Locations
The ASPCA Mobile Adoption program brings shelter pets and potential pet parents together by traveling to communities throughout New York City's five boroughs. Our state-of-the-art Mobile Adoption center travels multiple days each week to a neighborhood near you. Adopters can spend time with a cat or kitten (and the occasional dog) and go home with their new furry friend the very same day.
All of our animals are spayed or neutered, up-to-date on vaccinations, microchipped, and come with a leash or carrier, as well as a certificate for free follow-up veterinary care at the ASPCA Animal Hospital. Adoption fees range from $75 to $200.
Our knowledgeable adoption counselors are on hand to provide all the information you need and help you find the purrfect match. Please note that Mobile Adoption events are subject to change. For more information about our Mobile Adoption schedule, please call (212) 876-7700 ext. 4900.
Please note: In general, we primarily bring cats and kittens on our offsite events. If you are interested in adopting a dog, please visit the ASPCA Adoption Center  at 424 E. 92nd St in Manhattan.
When you are ready to visit the ASPCA Mobile Adoption Center, please note the following to facilitate the adoption process:
- You must be 21 years of age or older to adopt.
- Please bring two forms of identification. A government issued photo ID (driver's license, state identification card, military ID, etc.) and proof of current address. (A telephone, utility or cable television bill qualifies.)
- You may be asked to provide one personal reference, reachable by phone.
- Be sure to check your building's policy relevant to pet ownership to avoid any landlord concerns.
- If you have any questions, please call the Adoption Desk at (212) 876-7700, ext. 4900.
- In most cases you can take your new pet home on the same day. Please take a look at our Adoption Tips  before you pay us a visit.
