The ASPCA Animal Hospital (AAH) exists to relieve suffering and provide life-saving care for animals who have been victims of cruelty and neglect, and for cats and dogs whose owners are experiencing financial challenges.


AAH is open Monday through Saturday from 8:00 A.M. to 4:00 P.M., and closed on Sunday.
Important! Before visiting AAH, please call first: (646) 259-4080. Please be aware that you may be referred to another veterinary clinic to handle your emergency/urgent care situation. While our wish is to be able to assist every animal possible, we are limited to the number of emergencies we can effectively see on a daily basis.


AAH is located at 424 East 92nd Street (between 1st and York Avenues), Manhattan, New York City.

Who We Serve:

In order to provide care for the city’s most vulnerable animals, AAH provides urgent care exclusively for animals whose owners’ total annual household income is $75,000 or less. However, meeting this income requirement does not guarantee financial assistance.

To qualify for financial assistance, please bring one of the following documents with you:

  • EBT CARD (Benefits card)
  • SSI Award Letter
  • VA Benefits Letter
  • Proof of Unemployment or Workers’ Compensation
  • Proof of TANF benefits (Temporary Assistance for Needy Families)

Find a Veterinarian:

Due to the high volume of emergencies seen at AAH, we are limited to providing emergency care for pets whose owners are experiencing financial challenges. We are not able to perform checkups, vaccinations and preventive care such as heartworm, flea, and tick prevention. To find a veterinarian in your area, please visit the American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA) website which will assist you in locating an accredited veterinary practice.
