Large Wildlife and Dogs
During normal business hours, Animal Care Centers of NYC (ACC) accepts reports by phone of large wildlife (such as deer), stray or abandoned dogs, or wandering dogs that appear to be lost pets.
You may also bring a lost dog to a Care Center drop-off location.
Healthy Adult Cat
ACC does not capture or trap healthy stray or roaming cats and they do not accept reports about healthy mother cats that are still taking care of their kittens. However, you may bring in stray cats to one of the ACC Care Centers. Always use caution when trying to catch a stray animal.
You should leave mother cats with kittens where they are. The kittens will leave their mothers when they are able to take care of themselves.
ACC will accept a report by phone if you have found kittens that appear to be orphaned. You may also bring a lost kitten to a Care Center drop-off location.
You should always use caution if you choose to help a kitten. You should try to bring in a mother with her kittens whenever possible.
