How dog-friendly is New York?
New York is a hugely diverse state, with New York City providing a contrast to more rural and suburban communities upstate. With this diversity comes a real range of standards for puppy and dog care.
A study by Pawsafe ranks New York as the 32nd most pet-friendly state in the country. According to Safewise, New York has the third-highest percentage of pet-friendly rentals, behind Florida and Washington. An estimated 44% of all rentals are pet-friendly. However, only 27% of New York residents own a dog. This is a solid amount below the 40% average among all U.S. households.

New York City pups
While it can be a challenge to raise a big dog in a little NYC apartment, the city does have some amazing perks for pet lovers.
Research from the Trust for Public Land (TPL) shows that New York City has the 27th highest number of dog parks per capita, with 1.7 dog parks per 100,000 residents. Many of these parks allow dogs to run off-leash between 9 p.m. and 9 a.m.
There are 28 off-leash dog runs in Manhattan alone. Many are separated into areas for small and large dogs and some have water features to keep your pet cool. You can use your early morning walks to find some new friends for you and your pup.
According to NYC Dog Data, the top dogs in the city are:
American Pit Bull
Of the various neighborhoods in New York City, Manhattan has the highest concentration of dogs, with an estimated 119,340 pups. After that, Brooklyn is the most populated district with over 88,742 doggos.
The city also has excellent services for dog walkers, pet care, vets, and more.
Animal welfare & dog shelters in New York
New York does a decent job when it comes to the treatment of animals at shelters. But there are some areas where the state can improve. Of the 80,855 dogs and cats that entered New York shelters in 2020, they only saved 85.6%. The “no-kill” state benchmark is a 90% save rate. We hope to see New York push for getting more pets in loving homes.
