Rescuing and Rehoming Animals in Need in New York City

If You Rescued an Animal or Need to Surrender a Pet 

Please note that BAA is NOT a shelter. BAA is a rescue organization that coordinates private foster homes and adoptions via online listings. If you can house your animal until we find another home, we are happy to post him or her in our adoption listings. If you cannot house the animal, we will direct you to the resources below.


If You CANNOT Temporarily House the Animal

Please visit the links below to find local shelters, low-cost veterinary care, and tips on rehoming an animal.

CAUTION: DO NOT POST “FREE TO A GOOD HOME” ADS – animals given to strangers for free often end up in cruel, abusive hands. If you are adopting out the animal yourself, ALWAYS require an adoption fee, and ask the adopter as many questions as possible about their experience with animal care. Contact us if you need advice or have questions.


If You CAN Temporarily House the Animal

We are happy to post animals in our adoption listings if you can house them until we find another home. We suggest a $25 donation to support our rescue work. In order to post, we need the following information about your animal:

  1. Medical info: generally, we require all animals in our listings to be fully vetted, i.e., up to date on shots, spayed/neutered (if old enough), and tested for FIV/FeLV. Please visit the link above on local vets and low-cost vet clinics. If you are unable to afford the cost of vet care, we can discuss options with you.
  2. Personality info: please provide as much detail as possible, i.e., cute quirks, favorite way to be petted, do they like to snuggle, are they chatty, do they follow you around, favorite toy, etc. You never know what tiny detail will touch a potential adopter’s heart!
  3. Clear photos: please provide at least 4 clear, cute photos including at least one in which they’re looking at the camera. The photos are make or break for adoption listings, so try to make them good!
  4.  Short video (optional, strongly recommended): a short video in which they’re playing, snuggling, being petted, audibly purring, etc. Potential adopters love these!

Once we receive this info, we can post your animal on AdoptaPet, Petfinder, and Craigslist. All interested applicants are thoroughly screened to ensure a safe and loving home. Please understand that while our adoption listings do have a high success rate, having your animal posted is not a guarantee that he or she will find a home. The longer you can temporarily house the animal, the higher the success rate.

  • Meet Harrison, one of the many cats our rescuers are taking care of. He was recently diagnosed with hyperthyroidism and FIV+. The excessive hormones affect each of his organs, including an increased metabolism. This constant stimulation can eventually lead to heart failure. Harrison needs to get surgery NEXT WEEK, but the cost can run up to $2,500. His medication alone already costs $100/month. We want to get him healthy so he can find this #RescueCat a forever home! Will you chip in to help permanently cure Harrison’s hyperthyroidism?

  • Thurgood + Liberace; The bonded brother's that could! These sweet 8 month old kittens are “world champion cuddlers and trained dancers.” They prance around their foster home, full of joy and enthusiasm for life—curious, spirited, and loving, despite their humble beginnings. They adore humans and will make any forever family the happiest in the world. They can't wait to be the loves in your life! ♡ Living the rough life of street cats wasn’t in the cards for Thurgood (full orange tabby) and Liberace (white and orange tabby). They were fortunate enough to be rescued and put into a foster home, with a surrogate kitty mama to teach them the wonderful ways of the domestic cat. These bonded siblings are now more than ready for someone who will call them their own and will add twice the love and fun to your home! ♡ Thurgood is the more outgoing one, very friendly, curious and energetic, while his brother Liberace likes to hang back and watch how Thurgood fares before engaging himself. ♡ Thurgood and Li...

Thurgood and Liberace are neutered, up to date on vaccines, and FeLV/FIV negative. If you’d like to meet this amazing duo, contact Tara at catsbkny@gmail.com!

  • WINK, it's only Wednesday! Meet, ZOE: a Special Sweetheart's Story... This pretty kitty with a bubblegum pink nose, Zoe, was rescued from a backyard in Brooklyn, where she was persistently friendly and unfailingly good-natured, searching for the right person to take her in. It worked, and she found herself a hero! However, Zoe unfortunately had a very bad infection in her eye, which had to be removed for her own good. ✧ But this little detail doesn’t stop Zoe for a second. She thinks she’s as pretty as ever—and we’re inclined to agree with her! Having one eye doesn’t impact on her health, her mobility, or her personality. In fact, she’s feeling happier and healthier than ever without the infection, and her gratitude for being saved can barely be contained. Zoe loves to be pet and to prove it, she’ll roll over onto her back and show off her belly, the ultimate sign of trust. All this, and her precious purr just keeps on rumbling. We can hardly believe how sweet and friendly she is—which ju...

✧
Zoe is approximately 4 years old, spayed, and current on vaccines. She tested negative for felv/FIV. She’s all-around healthy and ready to meet you! Plus, she can go to a home with or without another cat! If you’d like to schedule a playdate with this special girl, contact Tara Green at catsbkny@gmail.com! ✧
