Facts about Monkeyshine

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Black (All)
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Female
  • Hair: Short
Monkeyshine is a sweet little 5 year old Black short haired kitty that is waiting for someone to see her and fall in love! She was surrendered to our shelter in August 2014 after her owner could no longer take care of her due to medical reasons. She was a loving companion for so many years, and now she needs a second chance at a forever home.

Monkeyshine has lived with other cats, but she likes to be little miss bossy pants around the other shelter cats. She is not used to living with dogs, but here at the shelter she avoids them. She does like to climb onto our laps for some cuddle time, and is used to sleeping in bed with her special person. Monkeyshine was always an indoor cat and is litter-trained. She is affectionate, playful and is usually found hanging out in our office area greeting visitors.

Monkeyshine has been spayed, is up to date on her vaccinations, treated for fleas/parasites, and will also be microchipped prior to adoption. If you are interested in finding out more about this sweet kitty, please contact our office or stop by and ask to meet her in person.

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.
