Featured Pet - Bubbles


Bubbles the Office Cat is full of life. She's sweet and sour, naughty and nice, the yin to her own yang. She defies description. Come meet Bubbles and see for yourself!


Welcome to the North Country SPCA, located in Westport, NY. We are a no-kill shelter that cares for cats and dogs who have been surrendered, abandoned, or abused. We serve all of Essex County including the Adirondack High Peaks and Champlain Valley regions. Our goal is to ensure that each animal gets a second chance — and sometimes a first chance — at a loving home.

We need your help! Adopt, donate and get involved. We depend on the generosity of people like you to keep our doors open.
