Foster FAQ

BoroughBreak

Animal Care Centers of NYC’s (ACC) ‘BoroughBreak’ program pairs members of the community with shelter dogs for field trips! Outings can last from one hour to all day and can include a hike, a trip to the beach, a fun car ride, or even a long nap at home. Whether you already have a dog or aren’t ready to have one, it’s a great way to get your pet fix in.


The BoroughBreak program was created in order to help reduce kennel stress and provide dogs with enrichment and increased visibility. Outings give the shelter valuable insight into how the dogs behave outside a shelter environment. It’s also a great excuse to spend a day doing something new or exploring New York City.
