Important Note

Zima is best friends with Leigh. Please adopt both of them so they can stay together!
Zima was brought to us when she was found living outdoors with 5 kittens in May 2015. She was being fed along with other cats in a feral colony, but she was one of the friendliest the people were feeding. She is also one of the most beautiful cats! She has light brown tabby markings, and very soft long hair.

We believe she is ~2-3 years old and is very quiet and sweet. Zima will need a quiet home environment, and would be happiest to live with another cat like her best friend Leigh (another brown tabby mother cat that was found pregnant). Zima has not lived around dogs or young children, so we are not sure how she will do with accepting them. Her preferred home would be an adult or senior home without a lot of commotion or loud visitors.

Zima has been spayed, microchipped, tested negative for leukemia and FIV and is up to date on her vaccinations. She is ready to be adopted to a loving and patient home that will understand she is a little shy at first. She is part of a bonded pair - and we are asking that Leigh and Zima are kept together.

An approved adoption application is required to adopt a pet from our Humane Society. Visit our main website for more adoption information, including policies, fees and to view our application. Completed adoption application forms may be submitted to our office via email, postal mail or in person whey a visit is planned.

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.
