Featured Pet

Meet Brownie

Brownie arrived at the shelter along with two other dogs when his owner passed away. He certainly misses his home but has settled in surprisingly well. Brownie is lonely though and so wants a family to call his own. Please stop by to meet this handsome guy!


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.
