City Shelters are opening for Families with Pets

Despite previous policies, some shelters (e.g. Ozone Park) are taking in pets. It is unclear at present if all city shelters will but it seems most will provide arrangements for family pets (service animals have always been allow in crisis centers per Federal Law).

  • Be sure to bring your pets' food, medicines, leash and collar and papers showing shots.
  • If you have a pet you should make sure you get to the shelter early because your pets need to go through intake with volunteers.
  • To make sure your shelter takes pets please call 311
