Facts about OJ

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Orange Or Red Tabby
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Male
  • Hair: Short
OJ was found as a stray underneath someone's trailer in Bloomingdale NY and was brought to our Humane Society on 6/6/15. He was hungry, thin and dirty when he was found, so we believe he had been outdoors on his own for quite some time. No one ever contacted us missing him or to claim him, so he is available for adoption.

We believe OJ is a 6-7 year old adult who was previously neutered by an owner. He may have been someone's indoor/outdoor cat that wandered away from home and became lost, or was left abandoned without a home to go back to. OJ is an independent type cat that tolerates other cats that respect his space. He enjoys spending time on our enclosed cat porch and exploring the shelter. He is not a fan of dogs or small children.

OJ is neutered, up to date on his vaccinations and will also be microchipped prior to adoption. He is ready to start a new life with a loving person or family looking for a handsome, mature adult cat to keep them company. If you are interested in finding out more about OJ, please contact our office.

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.
