Adopt a Friend

The Yonkers Animal shelter is a municipal shelter located on 120 Fullerton Ave.  It has many new friends to offer, so stop by any day of the week and give these pets a chance and a loving home!  Monday-Friday 11:00am-3:30pm and Weekends 12:00pm-3:30pm.

This is Darby!  He is a 7 month old Pointer/American Staffordshire Terrier Mix.  He LOVES people and seems very friendly towards other dogs.  Scratch his back and he'll love you forever.  Give Darby a home!

The shelter has a cat room filled with beautiful cats of all different types.  At the moment, there are also an array of kittens.  How can you say no to those faces?!?

If you are unable to adopt, you can still help the cause.  Old blankets, dry/wet cat/dog food, cages, toys can all be donated.

You can also donate, and even put your name on a brick, towards the construction of the New Yonkers Animal Shelter:

Plans are also in the works for Yonkers to build a new animal shelter.  The current one was built 50 years ago as purely a temporary holding place, not one for adoption.  The shelter is near capacity, only able to hold 140 animals.  Therefore, the conditions are very cramped and the cages small.  Plans for a new animal shelter are in the works but they are over 2 million dollars from their goal.  This shelter will be able to hold 50% more animals and will have grassy areas for them to run around.  With such a large city like Yonkers, there is no other option!  It needs a large shelter with a focus on adoption rather than just a holding place.  Bring Yonkers into the future and donate to the cause.
