Heart of the Catskills Humane Society cares for those who cannot speak or care for themselves. We educate our community, defend the meekest, teach humane treatment for all living creatures, foster a compassion for the weakest, heal the broken trust of the abused, and link the lonely with a four-legged companion.

Whether it’s an unwanted German Shepherd or a tabby whose guardian has passed away—no matter what the reason, we take them. And we will until we educate every person in our community that spaying and neutering animals is the only humane thing to do, that owning a pet is a commitment for the lifetime of the pet, that abuse or neglect is unconscionable and illegal. And we will try to match every adoptable pet with a loving home. Every day. As we continue our journey of a Heart.
All programs run by the Humane Society are supported by people like you.
