Facts about Paris

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Black & White Or Tuxedo
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Female
  • Hair: Short
Paris was brought in as a stray, and was never claimed by an owner. When she first arrived she was very unhappy being stuck in a cage after being able to roam around free outdoors. She wasn't pleased with the staff and volunteers trying to clean her space, and would only allow us to feed her! She did eventually settle in to the routine at the shelter, and has come out of her shell a lot. We believe Paris is 1-2 years old, and may have learned to be a tough cat outdoors. She has a very "slinky" way of roaming around the shelter, and sticks to the office area most of the time. She avoids most of the shelter cats, and hasn't tried to start any hissy fits with any of them. She tolerates our mellow office dog too. We do think that she would be happy in a mellow home, without younger kids that may be too active for her liking. Paris would be a great mouser, and just wants to find a forever home that will treat her like the fancy princess that she is! Just feed her and she will be more than happy to let you think you're in charge. Come and visit her and all our shelter cats today! An approved application is required, which can be found on our website. You can submit your completed form to us via email, fax or postal mail to begin the adoption process.

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.
