How many dogs should a family of 4 have?If you have four people in your house, you should have four pets. Others say that you should have as many pets as you can care for well. New dogs are a lot of work and take extra time than current dogs.
How We Help
The ASPCA works closely with numerous social welfare agencies in New York City to provide veterinary services such as spay/neuter and vaccines and additional resources for pet owners. We also work with pet owners who may choose to surrender some of the animals in their home and help them adequately care for their remaining pets.
In severe cases that require police intervention, the ASPCA will work with local law enforcement and prosecutors to rescue, care for, and help get justice for the animals. Our assistance may include field rescue, temporary sheltering, investigative and legal support, forensic services, veterinary and behavioral care and, where there has been either a voluntary relinquishment of animals or court ordered forfeiture, placement of animals involved.
