Owning and Caring for Pets: Resources by County

Pet Adoption and Resources

Clinton County

The Clinton County S.P.C.A. offers great information on animals, adoption, local events, and the many ways people can donate and volunteer.  Another great venue is Elmore's Rescued Treasures Thrift Store.  This thrift store accepts donated goods which in turn are sold to support shelter operations at Elmore S.P.C.A, Peru, NY.  

Essex County

The North Country S.P.C.A. in Westport also is a great venue that supports homeless animals and connects people and pets that are up for adoption.

Franklin County

The North Country Animal Shelter has great resources from pet adoption information, newsletters, care tips, and local events. Serving the communities of Saranac Lake is The Tri-Lakes Humane Society.  The website has great information for adoption, ways to get involved, and even a pet food pantry. The North Country S.P.C.A. in Elizabethtown allows people to sign up for newsletters and contains a featured pet finder that helps people locate a "new best friend" as well as a Friends for Life Medical Crisis Fund page.
