Yonkers Animal Shelter, located at 1000 RidgeHill Boulevard in Yonkers, New York is a municipal shelter run by the City of Yonkers.

Interested in adopting? We are constantly in search of new homes for all our wonderful pets, both cats and dogs. These animals are asking for a chance to show you their affection and love. If you are interested in a pet please consider meeting our beautiful animals. Our volunteer adoption coordinator is available to discuss our adoptable animals with you. Please email Leslie for assistance or call her at 201- 981-3215. Potential adopters are required to fill out our pre-adoption form, which can be done at the shelter or, if you wish to speed up the process, downloaded here and completed in advance. Please note, all adoption fees are CASH ONLY and you must be at least 21 years of age...
