Our Mission

"Adirondack Save-A-Stray is a no-kill 501(c)3 non-profit animal shelter/rescue organization. ASAS helps stray, abused, unwanted, and abandoned animals in need. Our doors have been open for close to 30 years and we have rescued and found homes for more than 75,000 animals. ASAS also offers many services to the community including a pet food bank, low-cost wellness clinic, pet medical services, and we are very community orientated when it comes to families and their pets."

In order to continue our mission at Adirondack Save A Stray, we take a donation at the time of adoption. We receive no local, state, or federal funding. We exist solely on the generosity of public and private donations. Your donation will help cover the costs of care and help us continue to rescue more innocent lives from being euthanized. The adoption fee is a tax-deductible, non-refundable donation-- You are NOT buying the pet.

It is our sincere hope that you, and any other people involved in the care of your future pet, have given the idea thorough consideration and are willing to accept the responsibility that owning a pet entails -training,house-breaking, possible illness, etc... Animals require your patience, dedication, and most of all love. In return, you will receive the companionship and love of your furry friend for life. It is our wish that you enjoy your new pet and that he/she becomes an integral part of your life.

Please think carefully before you adopt, especially if you are pregnant or have children under the age of four.

Our helpful staff will answer any questions and guide you in the adoption process, making it a pleasurable experience for both you and your new pet. They are also able to give you information on how to support our cause by becoming a member of Adirondack Save A Stray or by donating items from our wish list.
