NYC Pet Laws

New York City has a few laws it requires its pet and their humans to follow.


  • If you allow your cat to have access to roam outdoors, they are required to be spayed or neutered.

  • All cats over three months of age must be immunized against rabies.

Getting around the city with a dog can be a bit challenging at times. Knowing the public transportation rules can save you a lot of hassle. Below is a quote provided by

"Only small-size pets in carriers are allowed on MTA buses, subways and trains, as well as in taxis. Properly harnessed service animals are also permitted on mass transit. Taxi drivers may, at their discretion, pick up dogs without carry cases. The City is also home to several pet-taxi companies that can help transport pets that are not allowed on ordinary public transit."
