Facts about Sassy

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Brown Tabby
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Female
  • Hair: Short
Sassy is a 3-4 year old, short hair Tabby & white colored cat that was surrendered to us by her owner because they were going to be traveling too much to take care of her any longer. She arrived very obese, and we have her on a strict diet to help her lose some weight (she currently weighs 18lbs).

Sassy is a very low key, quiet cat, and would prefer a similar type home environment. She has been around other cats, and tolerates them. She would do okay living with another laid back, mature cat that will respect her space. She is affectionate and sweet, but can be a bit shy with new people. She is not a fan of active dogs, but would probably adjust to a mellow cat-friendly dog. Here at our shelter she has come out of her shell, and likes to visit with the staff and volunteers. She does not stray far from the room she is currently living in, but that is okay. Sassy enjoys quiet spaces and comfy cat beds.

If you are looking for a mellow adult cat, then consider adopting Sassy. She is already spayed, up to date on her vaccinations and microchipped. Feel free to contact us if you have any questions about her, or stop by our shelter to meet her.

An approved adoption application is required to adopt a shelter animal. Our application is available on our main website. You may submit your completed form to us via email, fax or postal mail to begin the adoption process. Contact us with 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.
