Animal Care Centers (ACC) of NYC had a record placement of homeless animals in NYC last year – 90.9% for dogs and 88.4% for cats. Read on for an infographic that illustrates this upward trend and the reasons behind it.


Says Matt Bershadker, President & CEO of the ASPCA:

"The progress ACC made last year—and has sustained over the last 10 years—reflects their longstanding dedication to continuously improving the welfare of New York City animals. It also illustrates their commitment to partner with organizations such as the ASPCA to create impactful programs, including critical efforts to help owners in communities where basic pet care may be unaffordable or inaccessible.”

In addition to ACC’s placement of homeless animals through adoptions, regular transfers of animals to its New Hope Partners has helped increase the number of animals placed, as well as its innovative approach to preventing animal surrenders. In 2016, the ASPCA received more than 2,000 animals from ACC and completed more than 5,800 spay/neuter surgeries for them.
