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 Valentine's Day, AC&C's adoption fee for cats is $20 ($50 kittens 6 months and under), $40 for dogs ($75 puppies 6 months and under), and $35 for rabbits. The Furry Valentine Special lasts until February 19.

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.
