Facts about Moss

  • Breed: Beagle
  • Color: Tricolor (Tan/Brown & Black & White)
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Small 25 lbs (11 kg) or less
  • Sex: Male
Moss is a 3 year old male Beagle that is available for adoption after he was surrendered to our Humane Society after he escaped from his owner's fenced yard and they could not keep him anymore. He was adopted from us in December 2015, so we know a lot about this cute little Beagle.

Moss is a friendly and playful dog. He enjoys going for walks with our staff members and volunteers on our dog trail in the woods. He also gets along well with other dogs that are playful but not too rough or pushy with him. Moss is respectful and well behaved around the shelter cats, and is most comfortable around older kids 10 years and up.

Moss is an active, young Beagle, and he will need an experienced home that will be able to give him adequate exercise everyday. He is not the type of dog that can be let loose off leash, as he has run away from his previous owner numerous times. A secure fenced yard would be great for him to run around and play in, but it will have to be Beagle Proof to prevent him from escaping. If you have owned a Beagle before, then you will know that they can dig, climb and squeeze through openings. Plus, they never forget how they escaped the first time. He is a smart little Beagle that needs someone that will be able to take him outdoors for hikes/walks and playtime.

Moss has been neutered, microchipped and is up to date on his vaccinations. He had received heartworm and lyme disease treatments in 2015 when he was first at our Humane Society. Moss has since tested negative for both. If you are interested in Moss, please contact us with any questions or stop by and ask to meet him 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.
