Priscilla is a beautiful pit bull mix who has a real zest for life. Those huge ears and contagious smile charm everyone she meets, and she isn’t shy with returning those feelings. She is young, so she has a lot of energy and needs some basic training to help her adjust to life as a well-mannered pet. Some running exercise each day should help calm her down. She would be happiest in a home with children older than 12 . (Credit: ASPCA)
China is quite the glamorous kitty and will let you know when she’d like some admiration and attention. She is a staff favorite at the ASPCA, where you’ll often find her stretched out snoozing on her favorite pillow. Note that she makes a great subject for Instagram photos.
China is on medication to control her history of seizures but treatment is affordable and simple.(Credit: ASPCA)
Gary is a super-friendly and affectionate pup. But they don’t call this curious goofball a busy body for nothing—he’s happiest when he’s on the move! He’d make the perfect companion to your afternoon stroll or run through the park. Gary likes to play with other dogs and with proper introductions, he could make a few canine buddies. This lively guy would be happy to go home with an experienced adopter who will give him plenty of playtime and exercise. (Credit: ASPCA)
Ronny is a sensitive gentleman, preferring quiet attention. He’s been through a lot in his short life, so he needs a family who can be understanding of his delicate nature. He is FIV+, but can still live a long and healthy life. He can live with other FIV+ cats (he loves to make other feline friends) and even a small dog. He has physical and emotional scars, and needs a special family to help shine! (Credit: ASPCA)
Curious pup Otis leaves no stone unturned! This inquisitive guy loves to sniff around and explore his surroundings -- there’s nothing he’d like more than a Saturday by your side roaming Central Park. This funny guy will keep you laughing with his playful antics, but, like most city dwellers, he’s in a rush to get to where he’s going! At times, Otis will bark to let you know he wants something and may be protective of his food, but the ASPCA team is available to give you tips on how to control this behavior. Otis would do best in an adults-only household with an experienced adopter who can give him lots of exercise and playtime. (Credit: ASPCA)
Beebo is a young cat who is ready to play! This rambunctious kitty is very food-motivated, so much so that he has been known to try and break into cupboards or cabinets like a dog. Simple cat-proofing will help prevent him from doing this, as well as providing him with some food-dispensing toys that he can swat at and enjoy. He needs to be fed a prescription diet to prevent prior health concerns but it doesn’t make a difference to him. This photogenic feline with a distinctive Cindy Crawford-esque beauty mark would do best in a home with older children. (Credit: ASPCA)
Robbie loves to PLAY! Break out the mouse-on-a-string and get ready for playtime.
Robbie is also an aspiring singer -- he makes often makes a chirping noise that is adorable beyond words. Plus, he'll give you a high five in exchange for a treat. What more can you ask for from a feline friend?(Credit: ASPCA)

Hazel is very affectionate, but it takes her a while to get to know new people. She already understands "sit" and "down" and is eager to learn new tricks!
While she does love to run, Hazel has arthritis in one of her legs and some pain in her knees, so she needs a family that will monitor her diet and exercise.(Credit: ASPCA)
Kathy is a sweet and sensitive kitty looking for a supportive home. She has diabetes and needs some special care, but will repay you with love. (Credit: ASPCA)
Feather marches to the beat of her own drum, and will let you know when she feels like receiving attention and when she’d prefer to have some of her own space. She can be very playful and would love an adopter to give her plenty of enrichment with fun interactive games. She would do best in a home with older children and should be the only pet in the home.

Cece was getting a bit overwhelmed in the shelter environment so she is living the high life as a foster kitty in the office of an ASPCA staff member. Cece is shy at first and takes time to come out of her shell but needs a family to see how special she really is. (Credit: ASPCA)
