North Country Animal League’s mission is to promote compassionate and responsible relationships between humans and animals. We do this through: Adoptions; Education and Outreach; Spay/Neuter Programs; Support of Cruelty Prevention; Sheltering of Homeless Animals.
Fill out our adoption form. We require four references, your vet’s name and number, and either proof of home ownership or a signed copy of our Landlord consent form. If everything checks out, you will be scheduled for an adoption orientation, when a shelter associate will talk you through the adoption packet filled with information to ease your transition to pet caretaking. You can even buy a leash and collar for your new friend in the NCAL store. A fee is charged for adoption to help pay for the care of the dog or cat during their stay at NCAL. The average stay for a dog or cat at NCAL is 21 days. The average cost of an animal during this time is $725. This includes medical care, food, shelter, exercise, spaying and neutering, microchipping and unlimited love.
