About Pet Pride of New York
About Our Shelter...
Pet Pride of New York has been a legal 501 (c) 3 not for profit organization since 1977. Since 2000, we have had our own shelter and office building on fifteen wooded acres in the town of Victor, NY.
We find new homes for abandoned cats. We help with cats that become homeless when their owners relocate. We neuter and spay. We provide all required health care and good food and rehabilitation for cats that have been abused.
We provide expert and authoritative advice and education.
We do not kill what we have in order to make room for more. Euthanasia becomes necessary when cats are injured beyond positive repair or when they have terminal leukemia (which is contagious and a threat to other cats in any colony). Sometimes, death is kinder than life for the injured, or sick wild cat. Our veterinarians help us make these decisions.
We're fully tax deductible, and you'll know that your money is being properly and wisely managed by caring cat people.

Our Adoption Process...
Pet Pride of New York is a no-kill, cat only shelter that provides a temporary home environment to a small population of healthy, people friendly felines while they await adoption. Pet Pride chooses our prospective incoming cats with great care.
Having a strict admission policy helps to insure that potential new owners will have a happy and long relationship with the newly adopted feline friend. Current owners are financially responsible for the cost of meeting the admission requirements.
An owner wishing to relinquish ownership of a cat must first agree to see their veterinarian for a full health exam and to provide the candidates past veterinarian records. (Fax: (585) 742-1641)
The cat must:
1.be spayed/neutered and in medically sound condition before being considered for admission
2.be up to date on all vaccines
3.be de-wormed by vet
4.be treated for fleas by vet if infested
5.have a Feline Leukemia/Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (Felv/FIV) blood test within one month of the admission date into Pet Pride. This test must be negative for admission.
Older cats may require a senior blood panel to be done.
A history of the cat's behavior, personality and present home environment are required.
THESE REQUIREMENTS ALSO APPLY TO KITTENS BUT THE REQUIREMENT TO SPAY/NEUTER IS WAIVED IF THE KITTEN IS YOUNGER THAN SIX MONTHS.
