​Volunteers & Employment

Folks, we invite volunteers and job applicants to our facility to pet and play with our adoptable animals. Our cats are all super affectionate, interactive and love humans. Our adoptable cats are taken off of the euthanasia list of Animal Care & Control ("ACC") of New York City. We partner with the best rescue groups in NYC such as K9Kastle, who take these cats from ACC. Most would likely not be alive now if K9Kastle had not taken them. K9Kastle, like most rescue groups, is an entirely volunteer organization. While waiting for their forever adoption homes, during their boarding at the Animal Adoption Veterinary Center our Vet Mobiles provide all medical treatments and socialization. We even provide ONE YEAR OF FREE VETERINARY SERVICES for our adopted animals and FREE LIFETIME ANNUAL EXAMS. We take in some of the sickest and most injured cats from ACC. You can now help us love these sweet angels, heal them, see them improve, and ultimately see them get adopted by their forever homes. Now THAT'S real pleasure ! 


Half Price Vet Services for Volunteers & Employees


Our paid staff gets the privilige of half price veterinary services for their personal animals and their personal rescues. Our volunteer staff also gets the same privilige. If you are a rescuer, or live with or care for several animals, by volunteering with us you can reduce your veterinary expenses by as much as 75% in comparison to market rates. Not only does your pocketbook benefit, so do your animals, and our animals. Our paid staff is extremely busy so their capability to socialize and pet and play with our animals is limited. This is where you can come in and enrich our animals' lives and at the same time reduce your expenses on your personal animals or personal rescues. You can drop by any Wednesday and put in an application to volunteer. We hope we see you soon !

"Bradley's Story" 

The impossible is possible at the AAVC !

"Bradley," was probably our most difficult rescue intake in our 35 year history. He needed one year of rehabilitation to make him adoptable and find him the "right" family. But it was all worth it as he lived a beautiful and long life to 15 years old in New Jersey. His family (below) loved him until his very last day, as all animals deserve.

Yearly Basic Membership $25
