Get to know some of our pets!
All of the dogs that are available for adoption are shown here. The page is updated as soon as an animals gets adopted, and every Wednesday we add the dogs that will be available on the coming weekend. The new dogs are usually available to meet and adopt beginning at 2pm on Friday.
If you are not able to adopt at the moment, but want to help an animal in need, please consider sponsoring one of the critters here at Pets Alive Westchester. For more information, please visit our Sponsor A Pet page.
We are open for adoptions from 10am until 4pm seven days a week. On Friday evenings adoption hours are extended until 7:30pm, Saturdays until 6:30pm.
Please note: You must have an approved application in order to see our dogs. If you fall in love with an animal and do not meet our adoption requirements... well, that's bad for both of us! Please respect our policy.
You can fill out the application online or in-person. When we receive your online application we will be in touch with you within 24 hours. If approved, you can come in to adopt at your convenience during normal business hours.
If you come in and fill out an application here, in most cases we can approve the application in a matter of minutes while you wait. Please understand, however, that if your application is missing information or if your references are not available, the approval process will be delayed. Once approved you are able to adopt.
Please uderstand that we want our animals in wonderful homes as soon as possible. We don't offer appoinments to meet specific animals, and all of our approved applicants have the same opportunity to come, meet and adopt our animals. So if you see your newest family member on our website, act quickly so that you are not disappointed!
A couple of notes:
Thanks so much for wanting to offer a home to a one of our animals!
We spay and neuter all our animals. They are up-to-date on shots and micro-chipped.
The adoption donation for dogs start at $100 for seniors (over 7), $300 (under 7 ) and $350 for toy breeds and specialty and pure breeds.
We charge an adoption fee to prevent people from getting "free" animals and selling them to labs or pit bull rings. We also charge a fee to try to offset some of our costs.
The adoption fees doesn't cover the expense of treating, medicating, housing, feeding and providing care for these animals. It costs us $125 to spay and neuter an animal, $20 to microchip them, $30 to get them up to date on all shots, $15 to treat them for fleas/ticks, $30 to treat them for worms, and $40 to test them for parvo. If you did all that at the vet, your costs would be triple ours.
