Adopting A Friend

Please note: Our adoptable dogs are NOT at our shelter. They are all in foster homes.


If you have questions, please email adoptions@socialteesnyc.org. Please DO NOT call the shelter.


If you are interested in meeting/adopting one of our dogs, please complete an application at http://socialteesnyc.org/applications/


Most of our cats are at our shelter, feel free to come visit them during our regular hours!


Who We Are

  • Social Tees Animal Rescue (S.T.A.R.) is a non-profit, strictly no-kill 501c3 organization that takes abandoned animals from kill shelters and provides them with safe haven and veterinary care until we place them in proper, loving forever home.  
  • We rescue, rehabilitate and place over 3000 dogs, cats, birds, and reptiles per year.
  • All dogs and cats for adoption are spayed/neutered, tested, vaccinated, de-wormed, de-flead, de-mited, microchipped and more.
  • We also run a special program for underdogs and undercats through which we take on as many amputees, blind, senior, sick, and injured animals as possible.
