New Year, New Chance

1006 days and counting…poor Lola has been at the shelter almost half of her life. The beautifully brindled pittie is a staff favorite, sweet and full of infectious energy. She’s an athletic girl who loves hiking adventures, long walks, fetch, and water.

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.
