Your Pet's Health & Safety

Keeping your furry friends safe and healthy is your top responsibility as a pet owner. These resources can help improve your pets' health and prevent or address threats to their well-being.

Reduced-Cost Veterinary Care

If you need financial assistance to help pay for veterinary care for your companion animals, there are programs available that can make routine care or emergency treatment more affordable.

Emergency Veterinary Hospitals

These New York City area veterinary hospitals are open 24 hours or open late to provide after-hours urgent care. Bronx residents are advised to use Manhattan.

Pet Poisoning

Many substances you might encounter at home or outdoors can be toxic to dogs, cats, or other pets when consumed, inhaled, or touched — including some medications, foods, and other products that are safe for humans.

Spay or Neuter Your Pet

Spaying or neutering helps your pet live a longer, healthier life, saves you money, and fights pet overpopulation and euthanasia.

Microchip Your Pet

Having your pet microchipped is one of the best ways to increase your pet's chances of getting home if he or she is lost or stolen and winds up at an animal shelter or veterinary office.

License Your Dog

New York City law requires that you license your dog, and update the license each year. When you license your dog, however, you're doing something more than simply complying with the law. You're giving your dog a ticket home in the event that she or he becomes lost.

Free Pet Food & Supplies

If you live in the New York City area and need a little help affording food and supplies for your pets, there are programs that can help.

Prepare Your Pet for Emergencies

In the event of a fire, natural disaster, or terrorist attack, you and your pets' survival depend on your preparation. Resources from these organizations can help you plan ahead for your pets in the case of an emergency.

Pet Lost & Found Resources

Losing your pet can be a frightening experience, but many lost animals do make it home again — especially when people work together.

Temporary Housing for Pets

Sometimes, life brings challenges that make caring for beloved pets difficult or impossible. Before giving up your pets because you temporarily don't have a place where you can all live together, explore these other options.

Domestic Violence & Pets

Victims of domestic violence who have pets often face the agonizing decision to flee and leave their pets behind, because very few domestic violence shelters accept pets. These resources might be helpful.
