My story

Meet Rhonda and Rufus. They were found living outdoors in a feral cat colony and are best friends. They are currently living with a foster family to work on their social skills as they both grew up being afraid of people. They are looking for a quiet home or apartment where they can be indoor cats. They are quite independent and enjoy watching the birds and taking naps together. A potential adopter should be prepared for an extended adjustment period as Rhonda and Rufus need time to adjust to change. While they have been making progress, an adopter should not expect Rhonda and Rufus to be lap cats or to be extremely affectionate. They are a bonded pair and must go home together, although they would not mind if there are other cats in the home. Rhonda and Rufus would prefer a home without dogs and kids under 10 years old as loud noise and fast movement spooks them.



If you are interested in finding out more about Rhonda and Rufus please know that they are currently in a FOSTER HOME and not at the Tri-Lakes Humane Society. Their foster family is trying to help them come out of their shells and become more comfortable around people.



If you would like to meet Rhonda and Rufus, please give us a call at (518) 891-0017 or send us an email at tlhsny@hotmail.com so we can set up a visit for you!

More about this 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.

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.

Looking for ways to help us? Visit our main website to find out more about donations, volunteering and more.
We are also on social media!
