We need people to arrive by 8:30 am.  We scoop boxes, clean floors, dishes, windows, laundry, etc.   Must be able to lift 25 pounds, bend, kneel, etc - kinda like yoga with cats (well not quite).

Cat of the Week

We have been receiving a huge number of calls to take stray kittens. Unfortunately we do not have unlimited space to house them nor the people to care for them. Please encourage people to take advantage of our low cost pay neuter clinics. Remember Kittens can become pregnant as early as 4 - 5 months old.

The Humane Society operates a foster network to care for homeless cats and kittens as space allows. Adoptable cats and kittens can be seen at our new Cat Shelter, at PetSmart in Ithaca, by calling us at 594-2255 to schedule an appointment or looking through our listing of adoptable cats and kittens.   Dogs can be viewed online and you can also see our available dogs on Mon-Fri mornings between 8 and 10 a.m. or on Saturday mornings, between 10 - 1, at the dog shelter.  If that time isn't convenient, please call us to schedule an appointment.

We are funded primarily through donations, gifts, grants and fundraising efforts. We receive no county, state or government funding for our on- going operation. Nor do we receive funds from national animal welfare organizations.  If you are interested in volunteering or making a donation please call us at 594-2255. We’ll put your skills or your donations to good use! We hope you enjoy your visit with us. And, do check back often to see what we’re up to and how you can become a part of it!

Thank you.
