We are currently seeking volunteers to help with off-site adoption events and fundraising. If you love animals and feel that you have skills that could help us with either of these positions, we are looking for folks who can donate one or two hours a week to help with these activities.
We are also looking for people to come in either during the week or on weekends to volunteer to walk our dogs!
We have a paid dog walker who comes in Monday through Friday, but he can only get so many of them out, and only for a short time. We’d like people (over age 18) who can donate a few hours regularly and that have experience walking big dogs, as many of them are on the larger and stronger side.All volunteers between the ages of 14 – 21 must have a waiver signed by a parent/guardian.
For all positions, Contact:
call 845-361-1861 if interested
The shelter does not receive funding from either the ASPCA or the Humane Society of the United States. Our existence depends primarily on the generosity of people like you. No donation is ever too small and never too big.

We are proud to announce our new “Cage Sponsorship” program.
Our “Cage Sponsorship” programs allows people, groups or organizations to sponsor an animal’s cage, either dog, cat, or bird for a period of one month, six months, or one year.
This allows the sponsorship funds assigned to that cage to stay with that cage, regardless of whether or not that particular animal is adopted. Cage Sponsorship could actually benefit more than one animal depending on the length of time your particular sponsorship runs.
For example, if you want to sponsor a dog cage for six months, and the dog that is presently in that particular cage is adopted, the next dog to be placed in that cage is automatically sponsored for the remaining length of time or until that dog is adopted and so on.
There is a plaque placed on the cage with the sponsor’s name for the length of the sponsorship. Anyone coming into the shelter to view the animals will see the sponsorship plaque with the sponsor’s name.
The prices for Cage Sponsorship are as follows:
|Cage Type||1 Month||6 Months||1 Year|
If you think you might be interested in helping us by sponsoring one of our pet cages, please contact the shelter any day between 12 noon and 4pm at (845) 361-1861 or feel free to stop in and ask about the program in person.
We have now started our Animal Sponsorship Program!
You can donate money towards an animal’s adoption fee to help get them new homes, even if you can’t adopt. We will still have the same adoption process with personal and vet references so that we know whether or not the potential adopters will be able to afford their new pet, but they won’t have to worry about paying both our adoption fee and a vet visit fee to get their newest family member checked out!
