Foster a Pet, Volunteer with Animal Care & Control of NYC

New York City is facing a surge of pets abandoned or given up for adoption and the Animal Care & Control of New York City, a non-profit and the largest pet organization in the northeast, is looking for foster pet owners and volunteers to help care for the animals they take in!

AC&C regularly rescues nursing moms with babies, kittens and puppies without mothers, and injured and ill animals. Their doors are always open to receive animals in need but these animals may need extra love and attention to get healthy and ready for adoption.

Join the Foster Program, which places them temporarily in the homes of caring individuals who help prepare them for forever homes. Foster volunteers give the animals the time and care they need.

AC&C is entering a very busy time of the year and really needs more volunteer fosters. If you are interested in fostering a pet or just volunteering, please visit their website at

You can also adopt a pet at the Manhattan Care Center, located at 326 East 110th Street (between 1st and 2nd Aves.)

Shelter Hours: 8AM – 8PM, 7 days a week. Adoption Hours: Noon to 7PM, 7 days a week.
Closed on all Holidays and certain Training Days.

  1. The law that was formerly “Intro. 655” (aka Jessica Lappin’s self-proclaimed shelter reform bill) is bogus and a death sentence for animals. We are looking at the numbers and do expect to see a surge in the kill-rate as a result of this law. Shame on all the council lackeys who supported this sleazy bill.
