KIRK UPDATE! Back in May we told you about Kirk, a tiny terrier who arrived neglected, abused and severely matted, with a deep strangulation wound on his front left leg. We feared he'd need the leg amputated, but he's made a miraculous recovery! After a month of medical treatment and rest, his leg is mostly healed and he's putting weight on it when he walks! 👏 👏 👏 Kirk is an excitable, happy-go-lucky guy who loves people. He'd prefer to be the only pet, but gosh, he sure does love humans. Adopt Kirk! . . . #animalhaven #maltese #maltesemix #poodle #poodlemix #tongueouttuesday #tot #recovery #doggo #rescue #newyorkcity
If we had to choose one classification for Dewey Decimal, it would probably be the 100's - Philosophy. When Dewey Decimal isn't busy reflecting on the meaning of life, he's pondering questions such as, "when will I find a new home?" and "which human(s ) will give the best under-chin scritches?" If you'd like to help answer these questions for Dewey Decimal, come meet him at Animal Haven and become his person! . . . #animalhaven #tabby #tabbycat #orangecat #adoptme #purrfect #formerstray #orangetabby #cats_of_instagram #cats_of_world #deweydecimal
ADORABLE PUPDATE! Maddie was adopted about a month ago and we just received the cutest update! Maddie's new mom says, "Just wanted to reach out and let you know that Maddie (now "Ducky" ) is very loved in her new home in NYC!! Thank you all so much for the amazing work you're doing and bringing this new joy in our lives." 💜 This puts a smile as big as Ducky's on our faces! 😁 . . . #animalhaven #adopted #rescued #pupdate #successstory #saved #rescuedogsofinstagram Pic courtesy @izzybe11
Is it just us, or does Yoyo seem like he's in on the joke?! This senior sensation is still looking for a home, but in the meantime, he's become close with some of our staff. As the self-appointed head of the Welcome Committee, Yoyo jumps with glee when we arrive, then runs to your feet and comes in for a cuddle. Honestly, if you're having a bad day, Yoyo's sweet greeting makes you forget about it. Since he's deaf, Yoyo prefers love on his terms. Yoyo loves affection, as long as he's the one to initiate it. This little lion would make an awesome addition to a relaxed, low-key, all-adult household. Adopt Yoyo!
Nudge nudge, wink wink: just a reminder that Ben is still looking for a home! If you're looking for a super-playful pup with a happy-go-lucky personality, Ben is your guy. He's a true "toy hound" and loves nothing more than bouncing around a room, throwing his toys in the air and reminding us that joy is contagious. Ben is the perfect size - a medium-sized "pocket pittie" for a NYC apartment, and he loves to get active and explore around the city. That said, he'll also be content with a house in the 'burbs or some digs near a hiking trail. Want to wake up to this smile every day? Adopt Ben! . . . #animalhaven #ben #floppyears #adoptabull #lovabull #rescuedismyfavoritebreed #dontbullymybreed #pitbulls #pitbullsofinstagram #adoptme
Cali is looking for a home!😻This gorgeous 4-year-old girl is a little shy at first but is a big fan of chin scratches and a gentle pet behind the ears.

"Welcome to Animal Haven - I'm Mollie! How may I help you?"
We love a good 'survivor' story, so we'd like to introduce Pisces! At only weeks old, Pisces and her three littermates tested positive for a potentially deadly virus called feline panleukopenia, which is the leading cause of death in cats. Highly contagious, cats with this infection typically have a very poor prognosis and we feared that she and her littermates wouldn't survive. But after weeks of intensive treatment and care by our medical team, we have GREAT NEWS: all four kittens survived and they are healthy!! 💞 Now three months old, Pisces and her siblings (Aries, Libra and Capricorn ) are ready to find love. Come meet these adoptable kitties at Animal Haven! [PS - they're wearing cones because they were just spayed!] . . . #animalhaven #survivor #panleuksurvivor #purrfect #kittenplay #kittensofinstagram #kittens_of_world #kittens_of_instagram #kittenstagram
Have you ever seen a more beautiful face? Erin just arrived at Animal Haven from Miami, where she had landed in a shelter with series injuries, most likely the result of a car accident. Her physical injuries have healed, and now Erin's heart is learning to heal. Erin is a total mush and bonds to people quickly. Because of this, she becomes anxious when left alone. Our amazing friend @mrsyobe has helped Erin work with a veterinary behaviorist and she's making progress. But we're looking for a home for sweet Erin where her new family will continue working with her to ensure her progress continues. She is 40 pounds of pure love, and her her person or people will be lucky to call her theirs! Stop by Animal Haven to meet Erin - you will fall in love! #animalhaven
Meet Margie! This precious little senior beagle came to us from a local shelter just last week. Our poor girl looks like she could have been abused -- definitely neglected. 💔💔 She is covered in scars and has a slight limp. But don't let any of this deter you! She is seriously the sweetest dog in town. 😉 And because of that, she'd probably do best in a quiet home full of love so she can relax during her retirement years. Who can blame her? And even better, she doesn't seem to be bothered by cats or dogs. In fact, she is currently rooming with another pup at the shelter and all is going well. They just went on a walk together around the block. Adorable! To meet Margie, please visit us at 200 Centre Street in NYC Tuesday-Sunday between 12 and 6pm. She is waiting for you. #animalhaven #beagle #seniordog #seniorbeagle #beagles #adoptdontshop #rescuebeaglesofinstagram #rescuedogsofinstagram #rescuedog #dogsofinstagram #beaglesofinstagram #beaglesofinsta #adoption #seniordogs #seniordogsrule #beaglesrock #beaglesrule
When a Good Samaritan found this itty bitty kitten crying and alone last week, she brought him to Animal Haven for help. Only days old, he wouldn’t survive without round-the clock feedings and care. One of our staff members jumped in and took little Mingus into foster, where she’s been hand-feeding him every two hours (yes, that means throughout the night! ) His latest milestone: Mingus opened his eyes and is starting to play! He’s about two weeks old now and cute-as-a-button. Mingus still has about 6 more weeks of care before he’ll be ready for adoption but, in the meantime, he’s getting all the love and care a neonatal kitten needs to thrive!! . . . #Repost • @lorenzo_rigatoni_yu #animalhaven #bottlebaby #kittens_of_world #kittenplay #adorbs #adoptdontshop #tabby #kittens

This precious, 10-year-old puggle is blind and diabetic, and he's just gone to a home with loving parents and a blind, diabetic puggle sister, Gracey! Here's Roomba following Gracey around, getting to know his new BFF. These two couldn't be cuter together and we are THRILLED that they get to spend their lives as a dynamic duo.

Today we celebrate fathers! 💜 Ube (formerly Drogo ) is pictured here with one of his dads, @calebygoh , the day they became a family last month. This lucky little kitty has another dad, D (double the dads! ), and a feline sister, Soya (formerly Savannah ), adopted from a separate litter at Animal Haven just a few days before!

Oh hai. 😍 This wee gal just arrived after being rescued from a hoarding situation, along with her litter mates. She is not - we repeat, she is not - yet ready for adoption. Little buddy still needs to grow and will be ready once she’s old enough to be vaccinated (another few weeks ). But this insanely cute face was too good not to share, heading into the weekend. Happy Friday! . . . #animalhaven #weekendvibes #puppylove #chihuahuasofinstagram #rescuedogsofinstagram #ohmygawd #adorbs #squee #puppies #puppyoftheday #newyorkcity #adoptdontshop #happyfriday
CHEF NEEDS YOUR HELP! When 3-month-old Chef arrived at Animal Haven, we didn't think she'd make it through the night. She had an upper respiratory infection so bad that one of her tiny eyes had ruptured, and on top of that, she was severely hypothermic, shaking, and anemic from a flea infestation. This tiny girl was in horrific shape. We rushed her to the vet, where we feared we might have to say goodbye. But we knew we had to give her a chance. With some compassionate overnight care, medicine and fluids, Chef began to perk up. Her body temperature warmed and she began breathing regularly. Chef is now back at Animal Haven, where she's receiving lots of love, frequent hand feedings and subcutaneous fluids to ensure she stays hydrated. Once she's healthy enough, her right eye will need to be surgically removed, but we're hopeful she'll be able to live a long, happy life in a loving home. Chef isn't quite out of the woods yet, but with your help, we can continue giving Chef the fighting chance she deserves. Click the link in our bio to donate, or find us on Venmo @animalhaven 💜
There are lots of 'Wednesday' traditions - wearing pink, pushing through #humpday and celebrating our #WCW. On Wednesdays at Animal Haven, we snuggle puppies! Ok, ok, so we do that most days, but today we're snuggling 4-month-old Chica! She just arrived to us from Antigua and we're already mildly obsessed. Chica's zest for life is quite enviable - she's simply a joy to be around! Want your own precious pup to snuggle at home? Come meet Chica at Animal Haven! . . . #animalhaven #adoption #rescue #adoptablepuppy #snuggles #puppyoftheday #puppygram #nyc
What better way to start #Caturday off than with beautiful Sionna! She is a shy, 1 year old girl that was dropped off at @nycacc when her previous family could no longer care for her. It was understandably a very stressful transition at first, but Sionna seems to have settled and enjoys head scritches on her terms. If you're looking for a beauty with a little bit of #catitude, stop by Animal Haven to meet Sionna! . . . #animalhaven #adoption #adoptme #sealpoint #rescuecat #catslife #catsofig
This week, we received seven small dogs via one of our rescue partners, and they are some of the most terrified and shut down dogs we've ever encountered. These dogs were rescued from a hoarding situation in Mississippi where they had been living on a rural property with around 250 other chihuahua mixes. Yes, you read that right: 250 dogs freely roaming, with little to no human interaction. Several amazing rescue organizations have helped along the way, and these seven have now made their way to Animal Haven, where we're beginning to socialize them and teach them how to trust humans. Right now, though, they are so terrified and shut down that several of them try to climb the walls when we enter their cabin to deliver food. But they are safe now.💜Our staff has already begun the long, slow process of helping them learn that people can be good. We'll be sure to keep you posted on their progress. . . . #animalhaven #hoarder #chihuahuamix #chihuahuasofinstagram #rescue #socialization #chihuahuagram #fearfuldog #dogtraining #nyc
What in the cuddly cuteness do we have here?! We're absolutely obsessed with this adorable bonded pair, sisters Theodora & Tamara.

‼️RUMPLE NEEDS YOUR HELP‼️We're looking for a hospice foster for our boy Rumple, and we're hoping you can help spread the word and help us find a compassionate, caring person. Rumple has been in the shelter system for 781 days, and that is simply too long. At 12 years old, his mobility is declining significantly and he's experiencing some health complications that come with age. His body is aging, but he is mentally quite youthful and excitable (Rumple *loves* snacks! ). Though we make every effort to ensure he is comfortable and happy at our shelter, it's just not an ideal situation for Rumple. So we're putting the call out: Do you or someone you know want to take Rumple into your home? The main requirement is a home that can be accessed without stairs, and we'll provide everything else he needs. In his advanced age, he has actually taken to liking many other dogs, so he no longer needs to be the only dog in the home! We love this boy so much, and we know you do, too. He deserves to be curled up in a home, on a comfy bed, not in a shelter cabin. We don't know how much longer he has on this earth, but we're committed to making sure it's in a loving fospice home. Will you help Rumple? Email us at dogsandcats @ah -nyc.org. 💜 . . . #animalhaven #rumple #pleasehelp #fospice #foster #seniordog #seniordogs #dontbullymybreed #fostering

In the wake of Thomas' passing, we're focused on some of the other animals with special medical cases currently in our care. One of those animals is Nicky, a 4-month-old kitten who came to us last week from @nycacc He's suffering from a fractured front right paw with deep, open wound. Because he was found as a stray, it's hard to tell if his injury was a result of cruelty or an accident. But Nicky has the sweetest, most loving disposition and purrs all the way through his bandage changes. He still needs a little time for his wound to heal up before going home, but we're confident this spunky little fellow will be back to 100% soon! . . . #animalhaven #rescue #purrfect #adoption #rescuecat #injuredcat #onthemend #getwellsoon #catslife #stray
We promised to share an update on Thomas, and it's with tremendous sadness that we must let everyone know that he did not make it. Each time we take in a difficult medical case, we do so with the understanding that this might be the outcome, but it's never easy. While we were hopeful that Thomas' enormous mass was simply an abscess, the cytology report came back as malignant cancer. Doctors determined that he was in significant pain and the tumor was inoperable, so we had to make the devastating decision to let Thomas go. 💔 Many of you have provided monetary support and words of encouragement for Thomas, and we cannot thank you enough. Of course, we understand if anyone wishes for us to return donations made specifically for his care. Otherwise, we will honor Thomas' life by redirecting those funds to our other special medical cases via our Recovery Road Fund. Thank you to our incredible community of animal lovers - you inspire us to keep going every day.
Our dogs love to hike! What a wonderful way to spend the day. 🤗👍💪💜 Thank you to all the staff and volunteers who make it happen! 💫💫💫 #animalhaven #hike #hikingwithdogs #adopt #rescue #enrichmentfordogs #adoptdontshop #dogsofinstagram #rescuedogsofinstagram #rescuedog
It wouldn't be #Caturday without a little sass from our newest feline resident, Alexis. We had to wake her from a nap to get this photo, and let's just say she was less than pleased. One of the reasons we love cats so much is because of their "do-whatever-they-want, whenever-they-want, don't-give-a-flying-flip-about-what-you-think-about-it" approach to life. And Alexis embodies this mantra quite perfectly. 😹😹😹 In all honestly, Alexis is just a bit shy. After finding herself in the shelter system at 11 years old, it's been a confusing, probably scary change for her. So we're looking for an adoptive home where she can feel confident that no one will hurt her. Alexis is already starting to warm up and allow petting. 💕 Come meet Alexis at Animal Haven and help turn that frown upside down! . . . #animalhaven #grumpycat #longhairedcat #catstagram #adoptme #seniorcat #adoption #rescuecat #kittycat

Friendly reminder from Kyda, she’s still available for adoption! Kyda is spending a few weeks at “summer camp” (a super-fun sleepover where she gets to socialize with her canine friends, run and get all her zoomies out ) and she’s hoping to find a family who will keep this party going! We never like to judge an animal by their breed, but Kyda exhibits some pretty classic Malinois traits - she is incredibly smart, active, and loves to work for snacks. Kyda would love a home with someone who enjoys getting outside, hiking, running, etc. Kyda is a citizen of the world, and she wants to explore it with YOU! Interested in adoption? Contact us at dogsandcats @ah -Nyc.org to meet her. ❤️ . . . #animalhaven #adopt #adoption #activedog #malinois #belgianmalinois #malinoismix #workingdog #willworkforsnacks #kyda #chooseadoption #activelife #hikingbuddy #dogslife #doglovers #summercamp #dogsoftheday #newyorknewyork • Thank you to @simplychaotickatt for this adorable #boomerang!!
We posted Embeth a while ago, but this girl just can't seem to get traction with an adoptive family. She's been at Animal Haven since January, when she was found as a stray. Embeth was pretty shy at first, but she's really started to warm up to people, and she is comfortable around the other cats in her community room. Embeth has a heart condition called hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, which is very common in cats. She doesn't currently need any medication for the condition, and she lives the life of any regular cat - lounging in the sunbeams and curling up for naps. Come by Animal Haven and meet Embeth! . . . #animalhaven #rescue #adopt #adoption #animalrescue #blackcat #beauty #hypertrophiccardiomyopathy #hcm #special #specialcat #meowAF #purrfect #kittykasa #blackcatsofinstagram #blackcatlove #blackcatsrule #catsofig #cats_of_world #cat_features #newyorknewyork #adoptme
From homeless to famous - many of our #animalhavenalum have found themselves in the spotlight after adoption. And Koki of @kokistateofmind is one of them! Today, Koki and his family are celebrating five years together. His dads say that since adopting Koki, "our lives have never been the same. Koki has brought joy to our lives and everyone who has met him, every single day over the last five years!" We're wishing a very happy #gotchaday to Koki, Vijay and Hector! (Koki was formerly known as "Animal!" while he was with us - yes, Animal! with an exclamation point - because he was that fabulous! ) • Repost @kokistateofmind **VIDEO**: Hi friends! Today is my 5-year adoption anniversary…can you believe it?!? Five years ago today, my dads adopted me from @AnimalHaven and we became the happy, loving family we are today. 🙌🏽❤️ Here is a video that celebrates my 5-year #gotchaday from the day I was adopted, to becoming BFFs with the @EmpireStateBldg and everything else in between. 🐶 Dads and I appreciate the love over the years. ALL OF YOU have contributed to the smiles on our faces each and every day! Thank YOU and cheers to even more great years together! 🙏🏽❤️ . . Extra special shoutout to @tiffanylacey218 @jenny coffey @shannonkirkman and the #AnimalHaven team for everything they do to find pups like me a forever home 🙏🏽👏🏽 . . 🎶: no copyright . . . . . #KokiStateOfMind #dogs #weeklyfluff #dogsofinstagram #adoptdontshop
Kirk has had a rough time so far. 😢 At 8 years old, this poor boy arrived extremely matted, dirty, and with a painful, exposed strangulation wound on his front left leg. We rushed him to our partner vet's office, where they shaved off his painful matts, helped get him cleaned up, and examined his injured leg. We're working to determine if Kirk's tiny leg can be saved, or if it will need to be amputated. For the time being, he's on pain medication and antibiotics, but he still can't bear any weight on the leg. That said, this itty-bitty guy has the heart of a warrior and a very big personality! 💪💪💪 If you'd like to contribute to Kirk's care, please click the link in our bio or find us on Venmo @animalhaven ❤️ . . . #animalhaven #recoveryroad #recoveryroadfund #recovery #healing #stopcruelty #rescue #animalrescue #adoption #adopt #terrier #makeover #warrior #heartofawarrior #coneofshame #maltesemix #poodlemix #littleman #doggo #getwellsoon #kirk #nyc #newyorklife #newyorknewyork

Griselda has been enjoying this holiday weekend by lounging in her cabin and staring at us with her big, gorgeous eyes. It is #SundayFunday, after all! 11-year-old long-haired beauty Griselda came to us this week from @nycacc after her previous family was no longer able to care for her. This poor girl was declawed, so she's understandably a bit hesitant to trust new people. But if you're patient and go slow with her, she'll allow you to give her a gentle scratch under the chin, and will return the affection with a light purr. Griselda would love to find a calm, mellow home where she can be the queen of her domain, without too much excitement. We're open today until 5pm and closed tomorrow on #MemorialDay, but back open with regular hours on Tuesday, 5/28. Come meet Griselda! . . . #animalhaven #cat #cats #longhairedcat #dilutetortie #domesticlonghair #shycat #purrfect #gorgeous #prettycat #catstagram #cats_of_instagram #cats_of_ig #nyccat #rescuecat #catslife #cats_of_world #cat_features #catlovers #catsofnewyork #catloversclub #catsoftheday #nyc #newyorknewyork
