NYC dogs and cats for adoption
A warning before you scroll down: You will NOT be able to resist these adorable faces.
Whether you have an active family or you're living the mellow single life, there's a New York City pup or kitty (or even a rabbit) with a similar personality looking for a new home.
All animals are either adoptable through Animal Care and Control of NYC or the Humane Society of New York.
Note that some animals listed her may have found homes by the time you seek them out. But don't worry! There are plenty of adorable pets looking for special human companions.
All adoptions through ACC include vaccinations, spay/neuter, a pre-registered microchipo, an ID tag, collar and certificate for a free exam at a veterinarian. All animals at HSNY receive vaccinations, are spayed/neutered and microchipped.

Bella, a 3-year-old husky mix, has beautiful blue eyes and a personality that shines. She's tall, elegant, playful and sweet.
