Adopt, Foster or Donate to the Best Friends Animal Hospital in NYC


Best Friends partners with shelters, rescue groups, and spay/neuter organizations nationwide to find loving homes for pets waiting for one. You can help by adopting, fostering, or donating to support our mission.

Have been to multiple cat adoption centers around town, and this one stands out as being the cleanest and most modern – many cats and kittens are available for adoption here!

General Medicine

Wellness care for pets and disease prevention is at the core of what we do at our Upper East Side veterinary hospital. From the moment your pet enters, we work with you to help them live a long and healthy life by offering medical dental care, diagnostic testing services, and other essential services for an extended lifespan.

At our core is a no-kill mission: through adoption, rescue, and spay/neuter programs for dogs and cats, supporting shelters and rescue groups across the country, and mobilizing communities for homeless pets. To achieve this mission, we rely on caring people like you who will adopt, foster, donate, or volunteer their time – so give animals another chance!

As a leader of the humane movement, you will build relationships with local and state organizations, policymakers, and community leaders to expand the impact of Best Friend’s efforts. In addition, you will help shape its direction forward while driving culture shifts for animal welfare through coalition-building influence/advocacy work.

The Sanctuary is at the core of our organization, set amongst Utah’s beautiful red rocks. Here, you will meet animals that inspire our mission of saving more lives and our welcome center, where tours, membership applications, city and hiking trail maps, and shopping can occur.

Surgical Medicine

Surgical care is an integral component of our lifesaving mission. Surgical care provides invaluable lifesaving opportunities by offering this form of medical treatment for pets that affect the quality of their lives and can even prevent death, such as severe infections and injuries that cannot be effectively addressed with medication alone. Best Friends provides training, support, and assistance to animal shelters, rescue groups, and spay/neuter programs across America. Nursing student David Sprague fosters dogs at Best Friends Sanctuary as he volunteers, which has become his happy place. Savannah used to be shy and suffer from skin conditions but is now learning to navigate life with her new family. We also provide disaster response teams for animals affected by hurricanes and wildfires in Maui, Hawaii – we need people like you who will adopt, volunteer, or advocate for needy pets!

Emergency Care

Best Friends is leading the no-kill movement across America by providing lifesaving adoption, spay/neuter, and support programs for dogs and cats and supporting shelters and rescue groups nationwide. Additionally, we help save animals affected by natural disasters through disaster response efforts. Volunteers at our Lifesaving Center in New York City help foster shy cats such as Savannah with health issues matching adopters with their ideal pet; nursing student David Sprague fosters dogs at our Lifesaving Center while driving for our organization; nursing student Vicki Williams mentors new volunteers while being Elton’s matchmaker!

Cat Care

Best Friends is leading the no-kill movement by running lifesaving adoption programs, providing assistance and care to shelters and rescue groups, mobilizing communities on behalf of pets, and mobilizing communities on their behalf. Our network includes thousands of public and private covers, rescue groups, and spay/neuter organizations that need caring individuals like you to adopt, foster, donate, volunteer, or advocate. Together, we can Save Them All.

Sara Virgil was browsing online when she came across an image of Fluff Fluff, an adorable white and black cat that recently returned to Best Friends after its adopters noticed she was struggling to breathe. Best Friends staff immediately referred Sara to a cardiologist, where it was confirmed that Fluff Fluff suffered from heart failure.

Sara knew she could help the sick kitty by adopting her, and now Fluff Fluff has a new name and is living a happy and contented life with Sara as her pet parent. Fluff takes all her medications regularly without complaint; she has even gone on a diet to reduce weight. Sara considers her the “best medicine.” She’s doing very well now, with Sara lovingly considering her “the best medicine.”

Dog Care

The Best Friends Animal Society is America’s premier no-kill animal Sanctuary, situated amongst the majestic red rocks of southern Utah and offering sanctuary for up to 1,600 animals at any one time. Their network partners consist of public and private shelters, rescue groups, spay/neuter organizations, and animal welfare groups who work tirelessly in communities like yours across America to save the lives of dogs and cats by adopting, fostering, donating, and volunteering – they need caring individuals like you to join in this cause so we can achieve no-kill by 2025!

I have been to various cat adoption centers in NYC, and this one stands out as the cleanest and most modern (I can’t speak for their canine counterparts). A good selection of kittens and adult cats was available to view in spacious, bright rooms designed by animal behavior specialists – volunteers were constantly in these rooms playing with and cleaning after them!

The Best Friends Animal Hospital is an ideal option for anyone in Brooklyn searching for quality care for their animal companion. Accepting many insurance plans, their staff is knowledgeable and experienced. Furthermore, financing solutions like CareCredit and Scratchpay provide extra financial flexibility when unexpected vet bills are due; their online store sells pet food and supplies.
