Yonkers Animal Shelter
Our Pets of the Month
My name is Valentino
, and I'm a very affectionate, special two year old boy. My
tail was amputated after I got hit by a car. As a result, I have
occasional accidents and need an outside litter box. I can be
an indoor/outdoor cat, so if you have a screened-in porch, garage
or basement I will make you a great cat. Please ask for me by
is a great dog. He is affectionate and he is intelligent. Petey
is also very handsome. He is interested in the environment, people
and other dogs. He is very well adjusted in spite of the tough
life he has lead. He would make someone a great companion. Please
ask by ID #1842.
We are constantly in search of new homes for all our wonderful
pets, both cats and dogs. The Internet has given these unfortunate and abandoned
animals a new lease or "leash" on life.
Who We Are
We are the Yonkers Animal Shelter, located at 120 Fullerton
Avenue in Yonkers, New York. We are a municipal shelter run by the City of Yonkers.
We are open daily Monday through Friday 11:00 AM to 3:30 PM and Saturday, Sunday
and Holidays from 12:00 noon to 3:30 PM. The adoption fees are CASH ONLY.
Adopting a Friend
We are interested in finding permanent homes for all of our
pets. These animals are asking for a chance to show you their affection and
love. If you are interested in a pet please give our animals a chance. Potential
adopters are required to fill out our pre-adoption
. You can do this at the shelter or, if you want to speed up the process,
it here and complete it
before you visit us. All animals will be spayed/neutered through the adoption
fee. This will insure a healthy and contented animal.
