After a LONG Kitten season, our dogs need some attention...from YOU!

We have a bunch of great dogs that need a furever home.  Visit our facebook page and/or come on over to the shelter and visit them. Your life could change for the better, furever.


It is going to be very hot these next few days, so friendly reminder to keep your pets cool and hydrated!  AND....


Parked cars are deathtraps for dogs: On a 78-degree day, the temperature inside a parked car can soar to between 100 and 120 degrees in just minutes, and on a 90-degree day, the interior temperature can reach as high as 160 degrees in less than 10 minutes. This is WITH all windows cracked/opened!

Aside from this, it is illegal in most states.


OCTOBER 14 will be here very soon!

We have a packed house! Kittens, cats and dogs galore! We are bursting at the seams! If you or anyone you know is possibly in the market for a new furry family member, please check us out on Facebook! We update fastest there. 


As we are sure some of you know, it’s kitten season!

We do have a few litters currently in foster care although they are not ready to be adopted just yet, they will be soon. 
This year is always a bit of a crazy time, so we suggest that anyone looking to add a new fur-baby(or two) to their home fill out an adoption application as soon as you can. This will not only make the process easier for us, but for you as well!
You can find applications on our website at they can be emailed to, faxed to 845-679-0339 or you can drop them off at the shelter directly) or you can stop by the shelter between 9 and 3. 
We will be sure to post pictures of the available kittens as soon as we can. 

As always, thank you for your support!
