What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Since the founding of ACC in 1995, our organization has undergone profound changes. Animal Care Centers of NYC's mission is to end animal homelessness in NYC. Our strategies to serve New York City's shelter animals have been shaped over two decades by the number of homeless animals in NYC, the struggles among individuals and families who are without sufficient resources to keep their pets and our commitment to keep NYC safe for people and pets alike.

About ACC

Individuals from all over New York City come to Animal Care Centers every day of the week for reasons as diverse as reclaiming lost pets, adopting new furry family members and acquiring resources to help them keep their pets in homes. We strive to find loving homes for homeless and abandoned cats, dogs and rabbits, both by adopting animals directly to the public and by partnering with more than 200 dedicated animal placement organizations. We also provide field services to local emergencies and calls from the public to help keep NYC communities safe and rescue animals in need. With facilities in all five boroughs, ACC has an integral role in improving the lives of pets and people in NYC.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Our mission is to end animal homelessness in NYC and we strive to find loving homes for abandoned animals both by adopting to the public and by partnering with animal placement groups.

ACC is dedicated to working together with the community of NYC to provide the best level of care for the approximately 20,000 animals who enter our shelters each year. Our devoted and compassionate staff collaborate with our New Hope rescue partners, fosters, volunteers, donors and animal welfare advocates around the city. We will continue to raise awareness of the importance of ACC's work and the needs of the homeless and abandoned animal population of NYC. Animal Care Centers of NYC also offers Community Resources programs dedicated to assisting pet owners throughout New York City with services such as free pet vaccination clinics, pet food pantries, and Surrender Prevention assistance, which kept nearly 4,000 at home with their families, rather than in our shelters. These programs help New York City pet owners keep their pets healthy and in loving homes for life.

ACC is invested in growing our many programs and departments, such as the Adoptions, Foster Care, Behavior and Enrichment, to continue to provide the best care for the animals that enter our doors. As one of the largest animal welfare organizations in the country, ACC also works with over 300 groups of dedicated rescue organizations called New Hope partners in an effort to find homes for the thousands of animals we rescue each year.

Animal Care Centers of NYC (ACC) has introduced several forward thinking changes to our operations and created new programs to better accomplish that goal, including; Dog Playgroups, dedicated to improving in-shelter experiences for dogs; Cat Condos, which provide privacy and comfort for cats; a Mobile Adoption Center, which brings adoptable animals to neighborhoods across the city as well as an Admissions Department, which decreases intake through surrender prevention counseling services. ACC is proud of what we have accomplished and we are committed to in the coming years, seeking out and seizing every opportunity to make ACC the most humane open-admissions animal welfare organization in the nation.

Balance sheet

Fiscal Year: Jul 01 - Jun 30

SOURCE: IRS Form 990 info

The balance sheet gives a snapshot of the financial health of an organization at a particular point in time. An organization's total assets should generally exceed its total liabilities, or it cannot survive long, but the types of assets and liabilities must also be considered. For instance, an organization's current assets (cash, receivables, securities, etc.) should be sufficient to cover its current liabilities (payables, deferred revenue, current year loan, and note payments). Otherwise, the organization may face solvency problems. On the other hand, an organization whose cash and equivalents greatly exceed its current liabilities might not be putting its money to best use.
