Animal Abuse or Neglect

Report animal cruelty to 

Adopt Don't Shop!

  • All retail stores get their animals from kitten or puppy mills, in which all the animals are kept in extremely neglectful, inhumane, and horrid conditions.  Learn more by going to PETA, Humane Society or other welfare organizations.

  • Breeders often show a pretty front, but are often puppy mills themselves.  Even the 'good' breeders often put profits and physical characteristics above the health of the animals.

  • PetFinder.Com is a wonderful site to find your perfect companion!  Don't let 'it's hard to adopt' be a reason, it should be hard, the shelters often do their best to find the right fit!


If You Find a Lost Pet

  • If an animal is acting in a threatening or dangerous manner, protect yourself and call 911 immediately.

  • Do not try to handle or physically restrain an aggressive or fearful dog or cat.

  • If an animal appears sick or injured, call 311 - do not try to make physical contact.

  • If you find a dog that has a New York City dog license tag, use the NYC Dog eLocator to help reunite them with the owner. Enter the 7-digit number on the dog license tag, your name, email or telephone number and an email will be sent to the dog’s registered owner asking them to contact you.   An email is also sent to the NYC Department of Health, which will try to contact the owner by telephone or mail.

  • If the animal has identification, you can also contact the owner directly. Identification comes in many forms, so please check the animal thoroughly for a tag or-tattoo.

  • You can bring an animal to most shelters and veterinary hospitals to scan the animal for a microchip.

  • If you find a pet (with or without identification), you also can file a report online or bring the animal to a shelter.

  • Check social media - Facebook often has local and national lost dog pages.


If You Lost Your Pet

  • File a lost pet report, and check ACC’s website daily for new lost and stray arrivals.  

  • You may not recognize your pet from the pictures and descriptions posted online; consider visiting a few shelters to see for yourself - find out shelter hours and locations.

  • Look for your pet right away. Check everywhere, especially places that your pet has been before (for example, parks and neighbors’ yards/bushes). Search your neighborhood during the day AND night.

  • Put signs around your neighborhood, in local stores (especially pet stores and grocery stores), and in veterinarians’ offices (where allowed) for a 3-mile radius. Your signs should be large enough to be read from 10 feet away.

  • Tell your neighbors (including all neighborhood children), your postal carrier and sanitation workers that your pet is missing.

  • Visit to check listings of local shelters and rescue groups in your area. The website will post ads for your lost pet.

  • Keep searching for at least a few months. People sometimes find a pet and keep it for a while before taking it to a shelter or abandoning it on the street where they found it. Lost pets have been reunited with their families after long periods of time – don’t give up.

  • Post pictures of your dog on social media:  Facebook often have local and national lost dog pages.


  • Ensure your dog has a current license tag attached to its collar or halter; securely attached, and always worn.

  • Attach identification tags with current information.

  • If your pet has a microchip, keep your personal information up to date with the company that services the microchip.

  • Consider buying a GPS device, such as Fi or Whistle.

  • Never let you dog go off-leash unless the area is properly fenced in - the dire statistics of lost or killed dogs by vehicles tell the story.

  • Never us a so called 'e-fence' or electric fence.  Besides being inhumane, they are dangerous if the dog does run across the line and gets shocked, it ensures that the dog will not return for fear of being shocked again.
