Facts about Phil

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Black (All)
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Male
  • Hair: Short
Phil is one of our big handsome black cats that we have available for adoption at our Humane Society. He was brought to us as a stray after he was found hanging around a house for a month. He was left unclaimed and is now available for adoption.

Phil is ~6-7 years old, and he is a BIG boy. When he first arrived, he was not very happy about it. But after a few days he settled into the routine here and he realized he was okay. He likes to boss the other cats around, and will stand up to most dogs too. We have witnessed him playing and laying around with other cats (like in the photo with a much smaller female cat on the porch). So...he likes to put on a show that he is a tough guy...but in reality is a big baby and can be very sweet. He may be happiest as the only pet, but would tolerate living with a submissive/laid back cat.
Phil is a fan of food, treats, toys and also likes to lay on the dryer and help with rearranging towels and blankets.

Phil has been neutered, is up to date on his vaccinations and will also be microchipped prior to adoption. If you would like to find out more about him, please contact us or stop by and ask to be introduced to Phil.

An approved adoption application is required to adopt an animal from our Humane Society. Our application form is available on our website, or by requesting one by contacting our office. We accept completed applications via email, postal mail or in person when you visit. Our adoption policies and more information is provided on our website. Contact us with any questions.

About Tri-Lakes Humane Society

About Our Shelter...

"We speak for those who cannot" has been our shelter's motto since 1973. Since 1942 our members and staff have rescued homeless and unwanted pets, and placed them into new and loving homes.
In 1998, our board of directors voted to become a "no-kill" facility. "No-kill" means we do not euthanize healthy & adoptable animals to make room for new arrivals. In 2001, we moved to our new facility at 255 George Lapan Hwy in Saranac Lake, NY. Since our big move, we have rescued and adopted out over 3000 animals and reunited over 1000 pets with their owners.

We are very involved in our local community, and we have a Humane Education program and we travel to local schools to educate children on proper animal care, the importance of spaying and neutering, and how to be kind to animals.
Our Spay/Neuter Assistance Program provides financial aid to low income pet owners who need help affording the cost of the surgery at local Veterinary Hospitals and Clinics.
We also have a Trap-Neuter-Return program to help local community feral cats.

The Tri-Lakes Humane Society employs an Animal/Dog Control Officer, and contracts with local towns and villages. Our Dog Control Officer is in charge of enforcing the local Dog Control ordinances. From time to time, we also become involved in animal cruelty cases and assist local law enforcement with their investigations.

Our Adoption Process...

Adoption Applications must be submitted and approved prior to adoption of any animal. You can view our Adoption Policies and application form on our website:

Our Adoption Fee for dogs/puppies and cats/kittens is $77, which covers the spay/neuter cost, microchipping and registration, as well as all vaccinations, flea treatment, and wormings.
The Adoption Fees vary if the pet was already spayed/neutered and vaccinated prior to arriving at our shelter.
We also have a Seniors for Seniors adoption program. If a person over 60 years of age opts to adopt a pet over the age of 7, all adoption fees are waived.
