The mission of Animal Center of Queens, Inc. (ACQ) is to educate and inform the public about responsible companion animal ownership, the importance of early training, the necessity to spay and neuter to prevent pet overpopulation which leads to abandonment, cruelty, and euthanasia, and that pet ownership is a lifetime commitment.
We are a not-for-profit "no-kill" boarding facility that has no government funding, and exists solely on the low cost community services we provide and the donations that come from animal lovers like yourself.
The ACQ operates a boarding facility in Queens County in New York City and is a member of the New York City Mayor's Alliance for Animals. We help homeless and displaced companion animals with temporary shelter, food, human companionship, medical care, low cost spay-neuter services through local veterinarians and behavior training until a suitable home can be found.
ACQ also provides low cost companion animal behavior training at our facility as well as doggie day-care and puppy head-start.
