  • Community

    Our Humane Education program engages individuals of all ages to model compassion and respect while addressing topics related to animal welfare. Our Law Enforcement Department plays a critical role in addressing cruelty to animals in our community. Our organization maintains an SPCA designation and is charged with investigating and enforcing the animal cruelty laws of New York State. We are working to make spay/neuter services affordable and accessible to qualified pet owners, feral cat caregivers, and rescue & adoption organizations through a variety of programs and services. Our special adoption programs place even more pets into loving, responsible homes by making adoption fees more accessible and providing help in finding just the right pet. We employ a full-time Behavior & Training Manager and support staff to address the enrichment and behavioral needs of all pets in the shelter. As a result, we are able to give more pets second chances at loving homes.

  • Environment

    We are committed to addressing the overwhelming problem of pet overpopulation and provide multiple resources for spay/neuter services. Affordable spay/neuter services are available to caretakers of feral cats to help control feral cat populations as part of our endorsement of Trap- Neuter- Release, or TNR. Our SNIP (Spay Neuter Incentive Program) provides low-income families access to spay/neuter services for their household pets at a greatly reduced cost.

  • Social

    We have programs that encourage personal and global responsibility towards animals. We teach humane education to people of all ages to promote compassion and respect towards animals while addressing topics related to animal welfare, as well as social justice issues.

  • Employees Culture

    We have a TREAT program that recognizes employees who go above and beyond their required duties with prizes of gift cards and paid time off. We have Staff Appreciation Days where the shelter is closed to the public and all employees enjoy a complimentary lunch, games, and prizes. We offer quarterly Compassion Fatigue Seminars to all employees to help them cope with the emotional and physical stress of working in an animal shelter.
