Adopt a Pet from the NCSPCA
What's New
Message from the Executive Director:
We are excited to begin a slow re-entry into normal day to day operation here at the NCSPCA. We miss all of you! At this time, the shelter will be open to the public each day from 12:00pm to 3:00pm by appointment only. We would like to continue to ensure social distancing so we ask that you call ahead if you would like to come visit us. This way we can avoid having too many people in the shelter at one time. Anyone visiting the shelter must wear an acceptable face covering to enter the building. We appreciate your cooperation with this and in helping ensure all of our safety.  Volunteers are asked to call the shelter or to email Pam or Brye as to what this means for you.
I also want to take a moment to thank you for your continued support of the shelter and the work that we do. We can't do any of this without all of you.

Wendy L. Beeman

Executive Director

Featured Pet


Sophia is another super-sassy cat. She loves treats and attention, but you never know how long she'll be last before the sass and claws come out. If you can be respectful of her quick-changing attitude, Sophia is a funny and quirky kitty. She loves to play with toys but not other cats. She doesn't seem interested in dogs, but ALWAYS interested in treats!


Featured Pet

Welcome to the North Country SPCA, located in Elizabethtown, NY. We are a no-kill shelter that cares for cats and dogs who have been surrendered, abandoned, or abused. 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.
