What's New
Messages from the Executive Director:
It has been brought to my attention that a post had recently appeared on What's Happening In Westport, NY suggesting that the North Country SPCA was hosting trainings each weekend in November and asking for donations to cover the costs. Please be aware that the NCSPCA is not involved or affiliated with this. I did not see the post as it has since been removed from the site. To be clear, the North Country SPCA is not providing trainings at the shelter nor requesting donations for any trainings.
Wendy Beeman-Tibbitts
Executive Director
North Country SPCA
We are so excited to see you again!
I am pleased to announce that the shelter will be open to the public on Thursdays and Fridays from 1:00pm to 3:00pm, beginning June 3, 2021. We will continue to be open by appointment only during the other days and hours. The NCSPCA will continue to require visitors to wear masks while inside the building and while interacting with staff. 
Thank you for your continued support of the work that we do. We can't do any of this without all of you.
Please call 518.873.5000 with any questions that you may have.
Wendy L. Beeman
Executive Director

Featured Pet


Chase is a 6-year-old Lab/Husky mix who loves people and the great outdoors. Chase prefers walks to playtime and is a calm older dog, except where squirrels are involved (hence his name). He gets along with other dogs but wants a home without other pets or young children. Take a chance and come meet Chase!


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.
