We are a municipal animal shelter. We enforce the Town of Newburgh Dog Control Ordinance, State Laws, investigate cruelty cases and rescue any animal in need, whether it be a domestic animal or wild animal. The dogs that are available at our shelter are dogs that have been either abandoned or have been running in our Town and not claimed by owner. All our dogs receive all vaccinations, are tested for heartworm and lyme disease, receive a dog license, free pet insurance for two months and also receive a free vet visit. Felines that are available for adoption are kitties that have been either abandoned at our door or have been found injured. All receive all necessary vaccinations and are tested for feline leukemia/aids.
Come Meet our Pets:
Our animal shelter is located at 645 Gidney Avenue. We are located near the NYS Thruway, Rts. 9W, 32 and 300.
Our Adoption Process:
An adoption application must be completed and approved before an animal can be adopted. Fees are $80.00 for both dogs and cats.
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.
