The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA) was founded 140 years ago as America's first animal advocacy agency. The ASPCA in New York City runs a shelter where you can adopt dogs and cats. They also have a volunteer program if you'd like to be hands-on with their shelter animals or assist the ASPCA with office work. A great place to adopt a pet!

Our rescue Cairns come from animal shelters and humane societies; others are released to us by their owners due to changes in family circumstances or to the owners realizing that a Cairn is not a good match for them; still others come from puppy mills and backyard breeders where they have been used as breeding stock. Our rescue Cairns are spayed/neutered, tested and if necessary, treated, for heartworm and other parasites, and brought up-to-date on their inoculations prior to their placement in loving forever homes

HELP PEOPLE IN CRISIS KEEP THEIR PETS! BECOME A FOSTER PARENT FOR AN ANIMAL IN NEED! The Mayor’s Alliance for NYC’s Animals and the Safety Net Program are working together to develop a foster care network for the pets of people in crisis. As our economy worsens, and people fall victim to foreclosure, eviction, and homelessness, an increasing number have been forced to relinquish their beloved pets simply because of circumstances beyond their control. As well, due to incidents of domestic violence, fires and illness, many people just need a safe, temporary place for their animal until they can get back on their feet. Often, individuals and families in crisis have few options but to give up their animals. These animals most often end up at a shelter where they risk euthanasia. SAVE A LIFE AND KEEP A FAMILY TOGETHER – BECOME A FOSTER PARENT FOR A TEMPORARILY HOMELESS ANIMAL!
