Join AC&C and many of our rescue partners at this spectacular holiday adoption event, presented by the Mayor’s Alliance for NYC’s Animals, in partnership with the Petco Foundation. We’ll be outside the Union Square Petco with a bunch of adorable cats and kittens in need of loving homes. Stop by (special thanks to the North Shore Animal League, one of our dedicated partners, for lending us a mobile adoption vehicle) to meet our fantastic felines!
Thank You for being one of New York's Kindest!

Due to your kindness, Animal Care & Control of NYC (AC&C) has SOLD OUT tickets for our Dinner & Awards presentation.
You can still make a donation or purchase ad space in the event journal
that will help the animals in our care.
A new and improved Animal Care Center in Staten Island, years in the planning, is about to take shape! Earlier this week, AC&C Executive Director Risa Weinstock joined Staten Island Borough President James Molinaro, elected officials, City agency heads, and the family of Tommy Monahan for a groundbreaking ceremony to get the exciting project underway.
Arthur and August, NYC's famous "subway kittens," have been adopted!
Thanks to their new guardians, and to everyone willing to help these two!
If you were interested in adopting the subway kittens, please keep in mind we have MANY other great kittens and cats in need of loving homes. View them online and please come by our Manhattan, Brooklyn, and Staten Island Care Centers.
If you're not ready to adopt, please consider becoming a foster volunteer. Arthur and August were in foster care before they were adopted, and we're always looking for people who can temporarily open their homes to kittens and other animals in need. Our next orientations are this Tuesday and Saturday- sign up today!
Tune in to this recent episode of wNYC’s Soundcheck (93.9 FM) to hear AC&C Behavior Supervisor Jen Abrams and others discuss the calming effects of music on dogs. AC&C recently teamed up with The Animal Rescue Mp3 Project, and thanks to this group, soothing music now plays for dogs and cats at our shelters.
AC&C’s most recent commercial features a few of New York’s Kindest and the animals they love. New Yorkers can catch it on NY1, the Discovery Channel, A&E, the History Channel, and Animal Planet. The 30-second spot is also being shown in a couple of local movie theatres.
