Adopt A Pet In New York City: Featured Animals For 1/13/2014, 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.

In celebration of the new year, Animal Care & Control of NYC (AC&C) is having an adoption special every Friday, Saturday, and Sunday in January 2014. AC&C encourages people to make adoption their New Year’s resolution, and become the cat, dog, or rabbit person they were meant to be! Every weekend in January, adult cats will be available for a $20 adoption fee; adult dogs for $40, and rabbits for $35.

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.

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).
