Facts about Quin

  • Breed: Labrador Retriever/American Pit Bull Terrier Mix
  • Color: Black
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Med. 26-60 lbs (12-27 kg)
  • Sex: Female
Quin is our 2 1/2 year old, Black Lab/Pit Bull Terrier Mix that is available for adoption. She was adopted from our Humane Society in May 2014, but unfortunately had to be returned because her adopter was moving out of the area and could not keep her.

Quin loves to run and play outside, and enjoys going for hikes and playing fetch with her tennis ball.. She also LOVES to go swimming and has also been on canoe trips. She knows commands including sit, lay down, wait, stay, drop, crawl, sit pretty, and was also learning to crawl on her belly and spin around in her previous home. She is housebroken, crate-trained and also leash trained.

Quin will need a quiet home environment, without a lot of commotion or people coming or going. She barks at strangers, and it takes her a little time to get to know and trust new people. She will need an experienced dog owner. As a puppy Quin was isolated to a bedroom by her owners, so she did not get to meet many people. Her first real life experiences happened after she was surrendered to our shelter when she was 5-6 months old. She loves the shelter staff and people that she has met, but will need time to adjust to a new environment and experiences.

If you are interested in finding out more about Quin, please contact our office or stop by and ask to meet her in person. She has been spayed, microchipped, and is up to date on her vaccinations and heartworm/lyme tested negative. She is a healthy and active young dog that would love to be able to go home with someone soon!

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:
www.trilakeshumanesociety.petfinder.com

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.
