Animal Medical Center

Losing a pet is difficult and it can be hard to deal with feelings of grief and find closure. In honor of National Pet Memorial Day, join us to remember the pets we've lost and celebrate the lives we shared. Hear remarks from AMC's leadership and supporters, watch a pet memorial slideshow, and leave the event with a special personalized keepsake.  If you'd like your pet to be included in the memorial slideshow, please send an email to with your pet's name, picture, and 1-5 sentences. This could include a message of love or a favorite memory. This is a free event and is open to the public. Out of respect for others, we ask that you please leave any pets at home.  For more info call (212) 329-8872 or  click here

Peconic is an adorable Parakeet looking for a new home. He was found as a stray, just fluttering around someone's backyard. We would love a big cage with bird toys to play in and snacks to nibble on.

Lilac is looking for a new home! This pretty Pittie is a senior girl who is looking for the right fit. She enjoys lounging around the house, but also strolling in the yard. She gets along with select dogs and previously lived with cats. She would do best with an experienced dog owner, in a home without children. If your home sounds like a match for this gorgeous girl, come down and meet her in person!

Meet Serviette! This super handsome and snuggly boy just went up for adoption. Serviette came to us wrapped in a towel, being held by a small child. She was sent to our shelter by her parents who made her surrender her pet cat. They had just had a new baby and he jumped up in the crib and they weren't happy about that. (He didn't do anything bad. He was just curious.) So this little girl had to say goodbye to her pet, all on her own. This handsome boy is very affectionate and just wants a person to cuddle.

Gail is a beautiful 8-year-old lady who has certainly had some ups & downs along the way but continues to shine. She has been at Pets Alive now for 3 years and needs to find a home. She needs a few moments to warm up to strangers but after that, she's so very loving. After all she has been through, she still trusts people and finds comfort with them. Let's show her that her faith and trust have not been misguided. She's ready for a true furrever home. Is that you?
