“Smiling” Polly is a beautiful Staffordshire Terrier mix. She is house-broken and great with humans and other dogs (not cats). Her story is heart-breaking but truly a Cinderella tale because she has a special guardian angel looking out for her. Polly was dumped at a kill shelter with a giant logging chain around her neck that needed to be cut off. Three days before she was due to be euthanized, the shelter reached out to CDHA to save her life, and thank goodness we did. Polly is, in a word, amazing. She is gentle, loving, and an absolute joy. She loves to play, snuggle, and go on romps in the woods. We could not ask for a dog with a more beautiful disposition.
Rescue Group Info...
Like you, we love animals. Like you, we want to help animals. The Capital District Humane Association -- "For the Love of Animals" -- was formed in response to the serious need for a private animal welfare group to serve the Capital Region of New York State. It is incorporated and approved by the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA) of New York City. Members of the Capital District Humane Association (CDHA) are volunteers with many years of experience working with displaced and homeless animals.
We find pets new homes! CDHA has found good homes for hundreds of displaced animals through a careful "adoption" process:
