Adopt A Pet In New York City: Featured Animals For 8/25/2013, Courtesy Of NYC's Animal Care & Control (PHOTOS)


Every week The Huffington Post New York features city animals up for adoption, in partnership with Animal Care & Control of New York City.

A nonprofit organization, AC&C gives shelter to more than 30,000 dogs, cats, rabbits and other animals each year.

Interested in a new pet? AC&C has adoption centers in Manhattan, Brooklyn, and Staten Island, all open daily from 12 p.m. to 7 p.m.

This week check out “The Real Housecats of New York City,” an adoption special through Sunday, August 25. The adoption fee for cats seven months and older is $10, while kittens six months and under are $40.

There is also a special off-site adoption event this weekend! The one dog pictured below, Tootsie, will be available for adoption at the 25th annual Ecofest in Times Square this Sunday, August 25. Tootsie is one of several AC&C dogs (and cats) who will be at the outdoor environmental festival (Broadway, btw. 45-47th St) from 10am-2pm.

All AC&C adoptions include vaccinations, a microchip, spay/neuter, one month of free pet health insurance and a free office visit at a participating veterinarian.

For more information on adopting, go here, or call (212) 788-4000.

Anyone interested in adopting a specific animal in the slideshow below can email, with the animal’s A# (in the parentheses next to the animals' names).
