Animal Care & Control of NYC (AC&C) is the largest pet organization in the northeast rescuing nearly 40,000 animals each year. As a not-for-profit organization since 1995, AC&C has been responsible for NYC's municipal shelter system, rescuing, caring for, and finding loving homes for homeless and abandoned animals in NYC. To service all NYC communities, AC&C facilities operate in all five boroughs.
To promote and protect the health, safety and welfare of pets and people in New York City.
We envision the day when residents, their property and neighborhoods, will be safe from the dangers and nuisances of irresponsible pet guardianship, and every pet born will be assured a good home and care all its natural life and will not suffer due to abuse, neglect or ignorance.
We value the integrity of each employee, volunteer and partner contributing to the professional delivery of excellent customer service and the humane treatment of animals, in an atmosphere of open, honest communication, predicated on our trust in and respect for each other.
