To find out the status of at-risk animals, please visit the ACC Official At-Risk Facebook page.

If this is your first time visiting this site, please read the below information carefully.

For anyone who wishes to adopt, there is a mandatory deposit fee of $200 plus a transaction fee per animal to place an adoption reservation. The $200 covers $50 toward the adoption fee and $150 for the spay/neuter deposit. If the animal has already been spayed or neutered or is permanently waived by one of our veterinarians, the $150 deposit will be refunded at the time of the adoption. If the animal does need to leave without being spayed or neutered due to his/her medical condition, the $150 deposit will be refunded at the time they are brought back for the spay/neuter surgery or when proof of sterilization being done elsewhere is provided to ACC. If you do not follow through with the adoption, the entire $200 deposit will be considered a charitable donation to ACC's Special Treatment and Recovery Fund (STAR). Also, if the adoption fee for an animal is less than $50, the difference will be considered a charitable donation to the STAR Fund. Similarly, in-shelter pricing promotions do not apply to at-risk animals.

To complete an adoption, please click reserve on the animal of your choice. That animal will be loaded in your cart and you will have 15 minutes to complete the adoption process. In order to complete your reservation, you need to check out (top right corner). At this point, you will enter in your credit card information and a receipt will be emailed to you as confirmation of your reservation. If you have any issues, please email adopt@nycacc.org for help navigating the website.

Kiki

Reserved
Kiki was placed at risk due to behavioral concerns; Kiki has tolerated minimal handling in the care center and appears uncomfortable with interaction at this time. Kiki has escalated rapidly to lunging and growling at handlers; we feel he would be best set up to succeed in an experienced foster home who can allow him to decompress and acclimate at his own pace. Kiki is otherwise healthy.

Skyler has deteriorated during her stay in the care center and has begun to show human directed aggression such as hard barking or lunging at people passing by. This may be as a result of kennel deterioration and/or a fear based response to new people. For these reasons, Skyler is recommended for placement with a new hope rescue partner that can provide the necessary behavior modification.
