Adoption Information:

  • We are not able to put animals “On Hold” for adoption. This listing is updated daily, so please contact us if you have questions about a specific animal.
  • If you are interested in adopting a specific listed animal, we recommend visiting the shelter during our open hours.
  • Our cats are housed in community cat housing, so you may go in and meet the adult cats up close and personal. Our kittens live in Kitten Homes, keeping litters together and socialized. You can view all the adoptable kittens that are up-to-date on vaccinations and ready to find their new home.
  • Based on guidance from Cornell Veterinary Maddie’s Shelter Medicine Program, we introduce dogs to potential adopters in our Multi-Purpose Room or in the fenced in area outside to facilitate a positive first impression for you and the dog. By not walking through the dog kennels, this reduces stress for all the dogs and helps our Adoption Counselors to be able to help you meet dogs that are a good match for your household. Our Available Dogs Adoption book includes important details about each animal, such as if they are good with kids, cats or other dogs. All of our available pets are listed on the Petfinder scroller below.
  • If you have a dog, we recommend a pre-scheduled meet-and-greet at Stray Haven. Please call us at 607-565-2859 to make an appointment with our Animal Care Team!
  • Dog Adoption Package: $160 donation for adult dogs, ($225 for puppies), includes up-to-date vaccinations (Rabies, Distemper combination vaccine, Lepto, Bordatella), flea treatment and deworming, microchip (HomeAgain), Pet Tag, office visit with participating local veterinarians (additional tests, vaccines, medications not included). Dogs will have been spayed or neutered prior to adoption.
  • Cat Adoption Package: $75 donation, includes up-to-date vaccinations (Rabies, FVRCP), FeLV/FIV test, flea treatment and deworming, office visit with participating local veterinarians (additional tests, vaccines, medications not included). Cats will have been spayed or neutered prior to adoption.
  • Adoption Promotions offered for Senior Pets (plus our Seniors for Seniors program), Long Term Residents and Sponsored Animals (you can help an animal be adopted by donating the adoption fees!) Throughout the year, there are also special events with adoption promotions – follow us on Facebook for more details!
  • Once you have decided you are ready to adopt, please complete the Dog Adoption Application or Cat Adoption Application and bring it with you to the Shelter.  This will make the adoption process go much quicker!
  • After your Adoption Application has been approved and processed, we will hold your dog or cat for 24 hours/next business day to give you time to shop for needed supplies and prepare your home to welcome the newest member of your family (“puppy-proofing” is always recommended, even when bringing home an adult dog!).

Adopt a New Best Friend: Consider adopting an adult or senior pet, as these animals have lots of love to give and they may transition even easier into your household.

Bringing a new pet into your home is a big decision. We encourage all members of the family to discuss the joys and responsibilities of pet ownership. Introducing a new pet to your other household animal resident may take patience and time. We’re here to help!
