JOIN IN THE FIGHT! HELP STOP CRUELTY TO ANIMALS!!!! IF YOU SEE A ANIMAL BEING NEGLECTED OR ABUSED CALL YOUR LOCAL LAW ENFORCEMENT AGENCY!!!!!!!
Thinking of Getting a New Dog?
Please adopt from shelters! These dogs deserve loving, permanent homes.
Be a responsible pet owner! Having a companion animal is a year round commitment. We have dogs for adoption all through the year!
Thank you! To everyone who supports our adoption program! Have you already adopted a new best friend from us??? Please send us a picture and let us know how they are doing!!!!!!! We would love to hear from you!!
IF YOU LOVE ME...LICENSE ME!
Please...Don't forget! New York State requires ALL dogs of age 4 MONTHS OLD AND OLDER to be licensed. If your dog is under 4 months old but leaves your property, it also must be licensed. License early and renew on time to avoid inconveniences! Also keep the license tag on your dog, NOT in his records folder! If your dog becomes lost(it can happen to anyone) this tag is the best way to a quick recovery! Dog licenses are issued through your City or Town municipal clerk's office.
ALSO...Look for our Newsletter printed, on the 15th of February,May,August,and November. These can be found at our shelter, various businesses,and veterinarian offices in Jefferson County. Call for exact locations.
