We anticipate returning to normal operations on Saturday, June 3rd. If you are looking to reclaim a lost pet or are inquiring if your lost pet is with us, please call 518-434-8128 ext. 216 to be connected with a team member who can assist you. Don't worry, members of our team are still on hand every day caring for the animals. In addition, a member of our team will be checking general voicemail, email and Facebook messages as often as possible. Thank you!

We rely on your generous donations to support our vital services for the animals.
