** The ASPCA Adoption Center in New York City is currently closed for in-person visitors.
Thank you for your interest in adopting a cat from the ASPCA Adoption Center! Due to staffing shortages our adoption program is currently on pause, and we remain closed to in-person visitors. You may still view adoptable cats below and submit an application, but expect that any communication from our staff about next steps may take several weeks or more. In the meantime, we recommend checking out other shelters across the city, such Animal Care Centers. We appreciate your patience and interest in the ASPCA!**
