In August, we took in 3,092 cats and dogs, and 620 were adopted. Another 1,517 were placed with our dedicated New Hope partners, and 166 cats and dogs were returned to their owners. 140 animals were in foster (some of them may also be counted in other categories).
YTD (through August) we've had 3,985 cat and dog adoptions. Help us reach our goal of adopting out 1,000 more animals than we did last year! Statistics for each month--cats, dogs, and other animals--are available online toward the end of the following month. Please see nycacc.org/Statistics.htm.
