Interested in adopting a pet — or just looking at some cuddly canines up for adoption? There are dozens of deserving puppies 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 puppies 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.)
Ghost, German shepherd mix
Ghost is a male German shepherd puppy being kept at AmsterDog.
Ghost is vaccinated. Have no fear: He is already house-trained.
From Ghost's current caretaker:
Meet Ghost, a gorgeous 9-month-old, 46-pound shepherd mix who needs someone to love him! This goofy boy loves to play, run, make you laugh. At 9 months, he needs a lot of exercise but also enjoys cuddling and snoozing! Ghost was dumped at the shelter more than once, and that fear of being abandoned is still with with him. He suffers from separation anxiety and will need some training and special medication, which will be provided for him.

Mazzy, Labrador retriever and pit bull terrier mix
Mazzy is a winsome female Labrador retriever and pit bull terrier puppy currently housed at Rescue Dogs Rock NYC.
Mazzy plays well with others — she loves other dogs. She is vaccinated, too.
Mazzy's current caretakers say:
Meet Mazzy! Mazzy is a female Labrador retriever/pit bull terrier mix who was rescued in Texas. Our veterinary partner estimates that Mazzy is 7 weeks old at the time of intake in early March 2020. Mazzy was suffering from a horrific skin condition that was evidence of the neglect this baby has experienced from the day she was born. But now that she's a Rescue Dogs Rock NYC girl, those days are over and she will never know neglect again.

Gracie, black Labrador retriever mix
Gracie is a winsome female black Labrador retriever puppy being cared for at Stray From The Heart.
Notes from Gracie's caretakers:
Gracie is part of our International Compassion Program and remains in Puerto Rico, where she was rescued until a home for them can be found in the States. You cannot meet her ahead of adoption. Gracie is not only beautiful, she is the sweetest girl ever! She's a typical puppy, very sweet and playful and loves affection. She's about 7-8 weeks old now and weighs around 8 pounds. We expect her to grow to a medium-sized dog.
