About Our Rescue Group:Like you, we love animals. Like you, we want to help animals. The Capital District Humane Association -- "For the Love of Animals" -- was formed in response to the serious need for a private animal welfare group to serve the Capital Region of New York State. It is incorporated and approved by the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA) of New York City. Members of the Capital District Humane Association (CDHA) are volunteers with many years of experience working with displaced and homeless animals.
We find pets new homes! CDHA has found good homes for hundreds of displaced animals through a careful "adoption" process:

Our Adoption Process:We hold adoption clinics where our animals can be seen by potential adopters;
We screen potential adopters for suitability as pet owners; We ask for personal and Veterinary References.
We have adopting owners sign a legal contract stating they are aware of licensing and leash laws and pledging to provide proper medical attention for their new pets;
We enforce licensing by requiring proof that new owners have purchased licenses;
We request a minimal adoption donation but give adopted pets ID tags and immunizations at no charge and spay and neuter all dogs and cats;
We take adopted animals back at any time;
