Dog Adoption Fee is $150.00 

All dogs will be spayed or neutered, vaccinated for rabies, distemper,leptosporosis, parvo and kennel cough, treated for fleas and parasites, tested for heartworm and micro chipped.

While dogs are in our care they will be on a flea preventative and all dogs tested negative for heartworm will be put on a heartworm preventative. Other medical issues will be addressed on an individual basis.

The Humane Society had functioned as an all volunteer, not for profit 501c3 organization in Schuyler County since 1987. The Society provides financial assistance for spay/neuter services and operates a low-cost spay/neuter clinic for the pets of income eligible County residents, shelter dogs and stray and feral cats.  Through the spay/neuter clinics the organization has completed over 7,000 surgeries. The Society also runs a successful cat adoption program, having placed over 700 cats into permanent homes. 

In 2012, the organization purchased property at 124 Marina Drive, Montour Falls, NY and all cats, dogs and the spay/neuter clinic are now located there.

We look forward to expanding the role The Humane Society plays in advancing animal welfare and becoming an even greater part of the fabric of the community”.

“The Humane Society will provide county residents with one point of access for both area dogs and cats”, says Tim O’Hearn, County Administrator. “While this will greatly simplify and expedite the process for people seeking to redeem or adopt animals, it will also ensure a high level of care for our homeless pet population while significantly reducing the costs associated with this service to local taxpayers.”

All inquiries regarding the adoption of dogs or cats should be directed to The Humane Society at 594-2255.  Pets available for adoption can also be seen on the Humane Society website or by visiting 

All calls regarding lost or stray dogs or concerns regarding possible animal cruelty should be directed to the Schuyler County Sheriff’s Department or Animal Control Officer Renee Hatch at 535-8222.
