Our Adoptable Pet List

Our Featured Pet...

Candy is our resident drama queen. If she were a Soap star, Candy would be Joan Collins or Susan Lucci before her Emmy. Candy is thoroughly animated and opinionated. But she's really a softy at heart and a fun fun cat. She'd be more than willing to play a starring role in the lives of the right family. We are currently holding auditions. And yes, Candy will be there. Autographs gladly given.

Adopting a friend

The Humane Society of New York has a great adoption matchmaker who will gladly take your profile and match you OR your cat or dog with the right animal companion. You may download an application [PDF file] by clicking here and either email it back, fax it or bring it in with you. Please feel free to submit your application! Hopefully we'll have a perfect match waiting for you.

Our adoptions almost always take more than a day. We want to make sure it's just the right match for everyone.

You can also set your Petfinder preferences to email you automatically when a particular kind of pet here at the HSNY has been newly posted.

Who We Are

For over 100 years the Humane Society of New York has been a presence in New York City, caring for animals in need when illness, injury or homelessness strikes. In 1904 we were founded to protect the city's horses against abuse. Members fought for laws to punish negligent owners and place watering troughs in streets and parks. As funds allowed the Society expanded to include a free medical clinic and a small adoption center for cats and dogs. Today our hospital and our Vladimir Horowitz and Wanda Toscanini Horowitz Adoption Center help more than 30,000 dogs and cats annually, and their numbers continue to grow.
