Important Note

Griffin is best friends with Gonzo. Please adopt both of them so they can stay together!
Griffin, and his brother Gonzo, were found living in a garage with their mother Gabby in September 2015. The home owner contacted our Humane Society and were able to catch them and bring them to our shelter. These brothers were ~4 months old, and had never been handled by people before, so it took them some time to adjust to our shelter staff, but they are gaining trust and getting braver everyday.

Griffin and Gonzo are ~ 10-11 months old now and are a bonded pair that we are looking to place together into a new home. They are still a bit shy, but love toys, treats and other cats. A good match for them would be a quiet home with other cats and not a lot of noise and commotion. They have not lived around dogs or small children ever, so it would take them more time to adjust to that type of home. They are super cute and playful...and would love a nice indoor home where they will be happy together.

Griffin and Gonzo are both neutered, up to date on vaccinations, microchipped, and tested negative for feline leukemia and FIV. They are ready to be adopted and start a new life. If you are interested in finding out more about them, please contact our office.

An approved adoption application is required to adopt an animal from the Tri-Lakes Humane Society. Our application form is available at our office or online by visiting our website. Completed applications may be submitted via email, postal mail or in person when you can come visit us and our shelter animals. Please visit our website for more adoption information.

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.
