At-Risk Animals


Thank you for your interest in adopting from Animal Care Centers of NYC. Our At Risk List is posted each day (except Saturday) at 6:00PM and remains viewable until 12:00PM noon the following day.

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.

Remix

A volunteer writes: How do you make a classic family dog even more fun? Remix! Black and white and adorable all over, this snuggly sweetheart lives to love on people and his intake notes speak for themselves...Remix was running in circles and rolling over for belly rubs, always looking to play and wagging his whole body the entire time, he even let our counselor pick him up! Crouch down at his level and he'll smother you in hugs and smooches, take his paw and he'll lavish yours with kisses, show him a lap and he will climb into it. No one is cuddlier than Remix! He walks well on leash, seems very house trained and greets dogs of all sizes with friendly good manners and while he never had a chance to socialize with other pups in his previous home, he's already made some special lady friends in playgroup. Remix also enjoys tug toys, which he's happy to share, and games of chase and apparently he even likes being groomed! Come meet this lovebug extraordinaire at our Manhattan Care Center today, you'll be so glad you did.
