welcome to


As a no-kill, not-for-profit animal shelter, our mission is to find loving homes for the animals who need them.

We have been the advocate and caretaker of homeless and abandoned cats and dogs for nearly 50 years.

We are proud of the work that our organization has done and we are determined to continue our mission, but we need your financial support to make that happen.

Please send a donation to HumaneCNY today.

featured adoptee

My name is Xena, and I am a 3 year-old petit lab/pit mix. Goofy, fun, energetic, and handsome are just some of the words that have been used to describe me.

I have a big smile and you can’t help but be in a good mood when you’re with me. I love everyone I meet, and I have a great zest for life. I am a really smart girl, and I would love to take an obedience class with you so that I can brush up on my manners and show you what a good girl I can be.

I would do great in an active home with adults who have the time to play with me and give me the exercise I need. As you can see from the photos, I am quite athletic, and I think I’d make a great walking or running partner or hiking buddy.

I LOVE to play with toys and have been known to sneak some from the laundry room and test them out to make sure they’re Xena-approved. If you are looking for a fun, loving, energetic, and playful companion who is sure to make you smile, then I am your girl! I can’t wait to meet you and start our new life together.
