ACC remains open for adoptions, drop-off of animals that require emergency medical care or that pose a public safety risk, and those being dropped off by government agencies.
For help, please call (212) 788-4000 (10AM – 6PM, 7 days a week)

The shelter is over capacity and we are out of space for new arrivals. We need to suspend dog intakes to focus on caring for the animals already in the shelter and finding them forever homes or placement.
If you have found a dog, we are asking our community to consider keeping them in your home instead of bringing them to the shelter. There are steps you can take to help that pet reunite with their family directly: nycacc.org/services/lost-and-found
No, the intake suspension is only for dogs.
Stray or lost dogs that require emergency medical care can be brought to the care center for surrender.
