Animal Care Centers of NYC will accept pets, including dogs, cats, rabbits, and other animals kept as pets, at Care Centers for a fee. They will not pick up unwanted pets from the homes of pet owners.

If the pet cannot be adopted or placed with a New Hope Partner, it may be humanely euthanized. 

The cost to surrender a pet is $0 per animal with an appointment and $50 without an appointment. This fee will be put toward the cost of your pet’s care during their stay with the Animal Care Centers.
