Animal Shelter for all of Schoharie County

About Our Shelter:

The Animal Shelter of Schoharie Valley, Inc. was founded by a group of residents of Schoharie County disturbed by the plight of the many starved, abused and stray animals in this area.

ASSV is a not for profit organization and is made up of all volunteer members and board of directors, with the exception of the shelter manager and kennel workers.

The goal of ASSV has been to try to alleviate stray animal suffering and to build a shelter to house, feed and care for these animals until safe and loving homes are found for them.

ASSV also strives to educate the public to spay/neuter their pets to eliminate the problem of unwanted offspring.

Why should you adopt?

Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog, adopting a cat, adopting a kitten or adopting a puppy versus getting dogs for sale, cats for sale, puppies for sale or kittens for sale from a dog breeder or a cat breeder? When someone is breeding puppies or breeding kittens, they are creating new dogs and cats who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog, cat, puppy or kitten and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale or buy a cat for sale from a puppy breeder or a kitten breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs and cats who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder or buying a cat or kitten for sale from a cat breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog, adopt a cat, adopt a puppy or adopt a kitten at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
