Interested in adopting a pet — or just taking a peek at some cuddly canines up for adoption? There are dozens of deserving dogs up for adoption at animal shelters in and around New York City.
Animal shelters and pet rescue groups work hard to care for unhoused pets and connect them to loving homes. Hoodline used data from Petfinder to power this roundup of dogs currently available for adoption.
(Details like pet availability, training, vaccinations and other features are based on data provided by Petfinder and may be subject to change; contact the shelter for the latest information.)
Roxy, Italian greyhound mix
Roxy is a darling female Italian greyhound mix being kept at Woof Dog Rescue Inc.
She's mastered her house-training etiquette. She is already spayed, and she has had all her shots.
More about Roxy:
I’m Roxy, a precious 2-plus-year-old, 14-pound Italian greyhound mix. I was mistreated by my prior owners, and when I nipped one of them in defense, they sent me to a kill shelter. I’m a beautiful little girl that gets lots of smiles from everyone in the street, although I’m still a bit timid until I get to know you. I’m slowly learning to trust that people won’t hurt me anymore, and I now snuggle under the covers at night next to my foster mom.

Macky, mixed breed
Macky is a male mixed breed dog staying at AmsterDog.
Macky would do great in a home with children — he's a real "people pet." However, his ideal forever home would be a dog-free environment. Macky is neutered and vaccinated, and he's already house-trained.
Here's what Macky's friends at AmsterDog think of him:
Macky is such a lovebug! He has to be up your butt or in your lap at all times. He listens very well but still pulls a little on the leash. He loves food! He has gained almost 20 pounds since we’ve had him. Macky is very jealous and possessive and needs to be an only dog. I promise anyone will love him. He’s such a sweetheart.

Glory, bull terrier and American Staffordshire terrier mix
Glory is a male bull terrier and American Staffordshire terrier mix currently residing at Zanis Furry Friends ZFF Inc.
Glory loves cats, but his ideal forever home would be a dog-free environment. No need to worry: He's already house-trained, vaccinated and neutered. Glory is a special-needs pet, so please inquire about his specific care requirements.
Notes from Glory's caretakers:
Deaf Glory is a sweetheart who just wants to love and be loved. He gives gentle kisses, the warmest doggie hugs, gazes into your eyes even though he is partially blind, and walks beautifully — if slowly and creakily — on the lead. Ten years young, he was surrendered by the only person he had ever known and plunged into a frightening, lonely world of silence at ACC — for he is deaf. He deserves a loving home for his senior years. All he wants is to lie at your feet in a warm doggie bed, smiling up at you, safe, loved, cuddled.

Stormi, schnauzer mix
Stormi is a female schnauzer mix staying at Waggytail Rescue.
Stormi loves other dogs. She has had all of her shots, and she's spayed. She has mastered her house-training etiquette, too.
Stormi's current caretakers say:
Stormi is an 8-year-old, 14-pound schnauzer mix (maybe some dachshund?). This sweet girl is a ball of uber-friendly, active, well-behaved and loving scruff! With her big soulful eyes and her droopy ears and beard, she looks like a dog from an old Disney movie who gets lost, had an adventure and then ends up in a loving home with her new family, sleeping by the fire on a huge pillow. That could be you!

Daly's current caretakers say:
Get your daily dose of cute with Daly. She's a petite gal in a world so big! She is the biggest snuggle bug you will ever meet! She adores people and loves spending as much time with them as possible.

Ellie, mixed breed
Ellie is a winsome female mixed breed dog staying at AmsterDog.
Ellie will get along great with your other dogs, but she is looking for cat-free household. She's already spayed, has had all her shots and is house-trained.
Here's what Ellie's friends at AmsterDog think of her:
Through no fault of her own, Ellie is looking for a new home. With her family displaced and multiple housing falling through, she's been in boarding for 6 months. After multiple conversations with rescues and trainers, nobody was able to offer any help, either. Her mommy worries every day about her quality of life and knows that she's not happy being in a kennel. With no housing opportunities in sight, Ellie's well-being is the utmost priority.
