Facts about Jake

  • Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier/Labrador Retriever Mix
  • Color: Brown/Chocolate
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Large 61-100 lbs (28-45 kg)
  • Sex: Male
Jake is an energetic 2-3 year old male Pit Bull Terrier Labrador Retriever Mix that is waiting for a new home at our Humane Society. He was brought to our shelter in February 2016 by his owner because he no longer had time for him. We are hoping to find Jake a dog experienced and active type home that enjoys going for long walks or hikes everyday or have a fenced yard for Jake to run and play in.

Jake is a super smart dog, and he knows basic commands like sit and stay and is housebroken. He is a strong boy, and pulls a bit on leash, but he is getting better with leash walking and listens to our shelter staff pretty well. Jake LOVES going for walks on our dog trail and spending time with our shelter staff members. He has been around a cat before in his previous home and he seems to respect cats but we will be testing him more closely. He does well with certain easy going female dogs, but he likes to rough house so another dog will have to be able to handle his play style. Jake needs a home with older kids, 12 years and up.

If you are interested in finding out more about Jake please contact us. He will be neutered, vaccinated, microchipped and heartworm lyme disease tested prior to adoption.

An approved adoption application is required to adopt an animal from our Humane Society. Our application is available on our main website, here at our office or by emailing us. You may submit your completed application to us via email, postal mail or in person when you can plan a visit to our shelter. Please visit our website for more information and contact us if you have any questions.

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.
