Genny is a 9 year old Treeing Walker Coonhound that is available for adoption at our Humane Society. This sweet dog was adopted from us back in 2011, but she was found running loose recently in February 2016, and ran for 3 weeks before being caught by the Dog Control Officer in another town in March. She was held for a month at that town's dog pound without her owner claiming her. We agreed to transfer the dog, but had no idea it was our Genny until we saw her and scanned her to find the microchip we had implanted prior to her first adoption.

Genny was originally an owner surrender in 2011, so we have most of her life history. She has lived with other dogs, but would like a home without young children. We have tested her around some of the shelter cats and she seems to be respectful of them and not aggressive. She loves going for walks and spending time with the shelter staff and volunteers that visit each day. She is housebroken, crate-trained and leash trained (she pulls a little to get to good smells!) She will run away if allowed off leash, which is not surprising for a Hound.

Genny has already been spayed, microchipped, vaccinated, dewormed and tested negative for lyme disease and heartworm. She is ready to be adopted, so if you are interested please contact us or stop by and ask to meet her in person.

An approved adoption application is required to adopt an animal from the Tri-Lakes Humane Society. Our application is available on our main website or by contacting us.. We accept completed applications via email, postal mail or when you are able to visit us. For more adoption information please visit our website.

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.
