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 ID 2050.

Petey 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 form. You can do this at the shelter or, if you want to speed up the process, download 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.

Volunteering and Donations

We are always looking for volunteers. To find out more about volunteering with the Yonkers Animal Shelter Volunteers, please click here. Donations are always welcomed at the shelter. We accept old towels, blankets, dog and cat food, canned and dry. We also participate in the Heinz Homeless Pet Program and would appreciate any redemption symbols. They can be sent to the shelter % Yonkers Parks Dept.,285 Nepperhan Ave., Yonkers, NY 10701.
