Ways to Help
~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’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.
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, as well as our adoption fees. No donation is ever too small and never too big!
We have a “$2 Tuesday” event every Tuesday of every month when we encourage our supporters to donate just $2 (or more) to our shelter. Enough people donating just $2 makes a sizable donation by the end of the day! Every little bit counts, and on this day, that little bit leads to something much more!

Purchase from Charity Oil!
We have partnered with Charity Oil to raise money for our shelter! For every gallon of heating oil purchased from Charity Oil in our name, they will donate 5 cents to our shelter! That means if one person fills a 400 gallon tank, we get $20. You get a full tank, and we get some food! Interested? Click here to go to their website!
Donate a Dog Bed!
Our dogs love to sleep on Kuranda dog beds, and we often have to replace them. If you would like to donate a bed at a special wholesale price for another dog to sleep in comfort, please donate a Kuranda dog bed by clicking here.

Donate through our “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.A plaque is 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. We can also to them in memory of or in honor of someone.
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 4 pm at (845) 361-1861 or feel free to stop in and ask about the program in person.
Donate through 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!
