Operational Updates due to COVID-19

Last Updated 3.24.20
Please refrain from calling the Rescue, we are inundated with calls and have limited staff to monitor. Email is the best way to reach us -
We are CLOSED to the public, adoptions are being done by appointment only - through email. 


We are open for adoptions by appointment only for approved applications.
  • ALL OF OUR CATS ARE IN FOSTER - THANK YOU!! We do not need any more cat fosters at this time!
  • All applicants must have an approved application
  • Appointments can only be made by email - our phones are incredibly busy and with less staff, harder to monitor. 
  • When you get here, call to let us know you are here. 
  • We will not be able to walk you around to view dogs, so please check out our pets through the website ahead of time. 
  • Cat adoptions will be more difficult, we do not have a space available for you to get to know the cats before adoption. We will do foster-to-adopt in order for you to get to know the cat in your home. Our adoptions team is very knowledgable about all the pets in our care and will work with you to match you with a cat that is perfect for you and your family!
  • You will have the opportunity to meet the dog you are interested in before adoption.
  • No one over the age of 70 or otherwise compromised are permitted at the Rescue according to NYS Matilda's Law.


We are only allowing experienced volunteers with over 100 hours of service to come in. No cat volunteering - all cats are in foster homes. 
  • Call or text us when you are here so that we can sign you in.
  • Do not come in the building except to use the bathroom.
  • The white boards are moved outside.
  • Please bring your own leashes. 
  • Stay 6 ft. away from any volunteer or staff member - no matter what. 
  • Be extra careful with walking.


We are incredibly thankful to everyone that is bringing us donations! Please leave donations in the bin outside of the front door. If you need a receipt, please email
  • We are not accepting linen donations at this time. 
  • Any monetary donation can be made online - or via phone: 914-372-7878 - THANK YOU!
