Adopt a Pet from the ASPCA

**The ASPCA is committed to prioritizing the health and safety of the community, the animals in our care and our staff, and we are keeping a close eye on developments related to the COVID-19 crisis as they evolve. The ASPCA Adoption Center in New York City remains closed to in-person visitors and our adoption program is currently on pause. You may still view adoptable dogs and cats and submit an application, but expect that any communication from our staff about next steps may take several weeks or more.

Our Los Angeles program is entirely foster-based and currently offering remote adoptions.

Thank you for choosing adoption! We appreciate your patience and support throughout the adoption process and hope you find your match.
