(NOTE: On Petfinder.com, the ID number requested is not the Petfinder number, but our own internal five-digit one.)

You may also request one to be faxed to you; call (315) 265-3199 or e-mail shelter@potsdamhumanesociety.org. You can put the name of the animal, ID number, or you can file an open application and just enter “Puppy”, “Kitten”, “Cat”, or “Dog”. Provide required documentation (see application form).
