      • Canines and felines of New York State residents who receive public assistance AND have adopted an animal from a qualified nonprofit or government organization.
    • To be eligible, designated beneficiaries and their pets must meet the following criteria:

        • Adoption from a government shelter or nonprofit animal welfare organization in New York State. (No proof of ownership shall be required given the difficulty in identifying a consistent or decisive form of proof, especially with respect to cats (e.g., barn cats); therefore, only proof of low-income assistance or adoption from an eligible shelter shall be required.)

Ineligibility:

  • New York City is excluded from the APCP program. 
  • Regardless of the above criteria, animals adopted from organizations whose adoption fees include the cost of spay/neuter services are NOT eligible for spay/neuter services through grant projects funded with APCP funds.
