Animal Shelters &
Humane Agencies in
New York State

On the following pages, we have provided a table of humane organizations in New York State. The organizations are listed in alphabetic order by county.

Contact them for assistance when you are investigating animal cruelty cases. Some of them may have animal cruelty investigators that can assist you with your investigation, but this is not something you should expect. When calling for assistance, be sure to ask for the shelter director or manager.

Some of the organizations may be able to hold seized animals. The “facilities” section of the table contains information about the type of animals each facility can accommodate. However, if you need help with other types of animals, still consider calling the organization because though they may not be able to accommodate you, they may know an organization that can. They may also be able to provide you with names of people who are willing to fostercare animals.Keep in mind that this table is based on information obtained in 1996 and is subject to change.

IMPORTANT: Before placing an animal at a facility or in fostercare, always inspect the facilities. Not all shelters, unfortunately, are able to maintain high standards.
