Adopt a Pet from the ASPCA

Thank you for your interest in adopting from the ASPCA! Please take a look at our adoptable dogs and cats below, and if you’re interested in adopting, click the “Adopt Me” button or complete the adoption survey linked for that pet. If our team determines that you and the pet you’ve applied for are a good match, you’ll hear from us with more information about our adoption process—which may take up to a week.

If you are adopting from New York City, please wait to visit the Adoption Center in-person until you’ve heard from our team, as we operate by appointment.

Our Los Angeles adoption program is entirely foster-based and currently offering remote adoptions.

Adopting a pet in the New York City, Los Angeles, Asheville or Columbus area? The ASPCA’s wonderful adoptable dogs and cats are waiting for you right now! View adoptable animals below.
