Early and friend 3Happy Tail: Early
Early (fka Storm) arrived at AC&C's Brooklyn Care Center last fall as a stray, only about 5 weeks old and 1 pound. Not yet ready for adoption, this cutie was placed in an AC&C foster home to put on some muscle and get some TLC. In December, he was adopted at the Best Friends Animal Society Super Adoption event at the Brooklyn Expo Center! And it wasn't long before he had a feline best friend himself (seen hugging Early here). Read more »

December and 2014 Statistics
In the last month of 2014 we took in 2,015 cats and dogs, and 616 were adopted. Another 1,131 were placed with our dedicated New Hope partners, and 138 cats and dogs were returned to their owners. 200 animals were in foster (some of them may also be counted in other categories).
In December, 87 percent of the cats and dogs AC&C cared for were adopted, reunited or transferred to placement partners.

In 2014, we had 6,184 cat and dog adoptions, and 80.7 percent of cats and dogs in our care were adopted, reunited or transferred to placement partners. Nearly 1,000 animals spent time in a foster home. Help us increase adoptions of cats, dogs, and rabbits in 2015 by adopting, fostering, or encouraging others to do so! Statistics for each month--cats, dogs, and other animals--are available online toward the end of the following month.
