New York City is the largest city in the U.S. and it also has the worst canine overpopulation than any other state in the US. This is mainly due to irresponsible dog owners, who abandoned their pets, abused them, or simply can handle the responsibility. Some of the better cases involved the pet owners surrendering or given up their dogs to dog rescue groups or animal shelters.

There are hundreds of kill or no-kill shelters and rescue centers in the state of New York which aid dogs and other pets to become adoptable candidates. For shelter and rescue group information in New York State and New York City visit Pet Net.

Adopting a dog in New York City can be a major task, not because dogs are hard to find, but because of space. The majority of the residents of New York live in small apartments or compact homes.
