NYS Reg # RR007
Dear Adopters, Friends, and Supporters,
COVID-19 has changed the world and has affected almost everyone on a personal level. Many have lost loved ones, jobs, have been working from home, and more. As the COVID Pandemic continues to show no end in sight we have decided to take Adirondack Save a Stray in a different direction. It has become increasingly difficult to rescue the animals in need and veterinary care and transport have become out of reach financially. With so much uncertainty in the world right now we are going to focus on our community outreach program. What this means for us is we will be suspending our rescue and adoption program as it currently exists and will not be transporting any rescues into New York state. ASAS will be closing our current location to new intakes and adoptions.
It is with a heavy heart and sorrow that we must make this announcement. After 30 years of rescuing animals and saving over 60,000 lives, this decision did not come lightly. The COVID pandemic has just pushed us over the edge and we felt this is the best decision to keep our organization alive and focus on the needs of our community. We will continue to help the animals, just in a different way.
ASAS will be expanding our community program in the coming months. We have partnered with two Veterinarians who will partake in our outreach program and hope to partner with many more. We will let you know what services we will offer and how we will be able to help you when the dust settles, and we have all our ducks in a row. As for ASAS, we have always strived to do the best and we want to make sure that our outreach program serves the community in the best way possible.
We know you will be disappointed, as we are as well, but ASAS will be starting a new chapter for the wellbeing of the animals and the community in need. We still will be posting on our Facebook page and our Website tidbits of information, tips on animal care, courtesy posts, and more.
The ASAS team are proud of the work that we have done over the years and want to thank our staff, volunteers, adopters, friends, and supporters from the bottom of our hearts. Because of all of you, ASAS is very successful and has worked hard on behalf of animal welfare. We also want to give a shout out to our rescue partners and veterinarians throughout the east coast who believed in us and helped us save so many lives, so so many.
ASAS has always been the champion and savior for the abused, the sick who we made well, the broken who we made whole, the discarded who we showed love and respect for.
Finally, we want to say thank you to our adopters, our wonderful caring and compassionate adopters that have given all our rescues forever, safe, responsible, and loving homes. We have nothing but gratitude.
Please continue to support and follow us on our Facebook page and Website as we will continue to make it informative and interactive on our new journey. Thank you for making tails wag and hearts purr.
With sorrow and gratitude,
Meredith & The ASAS Team

"I recently adopted Ella from here after reading about what the agency was about and risks of taking in a puppy from a high kill shelter. The staff was excellent. They let me spend time with the dogs in order to identify a good fit for our home. She's a beautiful healthy girl. She's so sweet and we are so happy to have her in our family!"-Nicole Nall
"We adopted our puppy from Adirondack Save-A-Stray after seeing one of their posts on Facebook about her. She was rescued from a kill shelter in Alabama, and we could not be happier with our choice. She is a total sweetheart and is well behaved and healthy, she came to us with paperwork and tags and has been an immediate source of happiness and companionship.
The young lady who helped us through the paperwork seemed like she is in this business because she loves it. All of the animals we saw, puppies and dogs, cats, and a rabbit all seemed happy and healthy.
We flood the internet with her picture routinely, and you find them on Instagram @locutusofbork" - Andrew Duncan
"The staff’s love of animals and desire to see them be successful in their new families is evident. Our pup has been healthy, happy and adjusted amazingly in our home. Though we are totally in love with her and thinks she’s the world’s perfect dog I feel a lot of how easily she adjusted is related to the experience she had at ASAS. It’s been a great experience all around and I would definitely recommend this service and the animals in their care."-Erica Matthews
"We adopted Roscoe, one of the 'hospital' puppies on October 30, 2017. I can't begin to tell you what a joy he has been. There is not a day that goes by that my husband and I haven't smiled and laughed because of Roscoe. Everyone that meets him loves him. We were impressed with how Adirondack-Save-A-Stray is run. There was plenty of staff there and the puppies seemed well cared for. I love the use of the old house for dogs and cats. We think you do amazing work and if it wasn't for you, we wouldn't have Roscoe. So we thank you from the bottom of our hearts. We are considering getting a second pup so Roscoe has a friend and we would definitely look at ASAS first. Thanks again. Happy 2018!"-Ann Kill
"I adopted one of the Question Mark puppies. I named her Emma. She’s incredibly smart and sweet and loving. My vet told me she’s in excellent health. The women at Adirondack Save A Stray obviously love what they do and are passionate about their purpose. It’s hard to fathom that this sweet pup could have been put down. Instead, she’s sprawled out on my couch getting belly rubs and love. Thank you for all you do at your organization."-Cara Maria
"We adopted one of the dumpster puppies. The male out if the 3. We named him Harley. He is the best pup that could have ever come into our lives. We brought him home 3 weeks ago and couldn't be happier. He's loving, caring, and loves to play. Thank you Adirondack Safe-A-stray for the best pup ever."-Melissa Marie Rourke
"I got my dog Chief January 12th 2016. Based on his age then, his birthday would be this month, november. We are celebrating his SECOND birthday in 3 days � he is an amazing dog. His energy level is super high. I remember arriving and the customer service.
It was an absolute blizzard, took us a long time to arrive. The owner was awesome being patient with us. I called a couple times on our trip to keep her updated due to the weather. Very kind!
And now, here we are, just about 2yrs later and my boy is very healthy and doing awesome!"-Kelly A Lyons
"Adirondack save a stray gave me my baby and for that I’m forever grateful. We already had a dog, Nala, and my boyfriend was adamant about not getting another. I’m very sick and have several surgeries each year - while I was recovering from one of my surgeries I saw a litter of pups available for adoption on Adirondack save a strays Facebook, we went to just “see” the puppies when they arrived. When we walked into the room, there was about a dozen puppies who were available for adoption. I looked into the pen and there was one puppy with his butt in the food bowl and a toy lion in his mouth. That was it. I was in love and there was no turning back. We adopted Simba that day. He has been my “feel better baby” and has helped me through many medical struggles. I would be lost without him and I owe it all to Adirondack save a stray. We’re coming up on our one year adoption anniversary and I couldn’t be happier with our choice. Thank you ASAS"-Nicole Gardella
"We went after we lost our beloved dog of 12+ yrs and had other adoptions all fall-through & also looked at countless other dogs. Nothing felt right. As soon as we walked in course they had tons of dogs there but as soon as we seen Juneau (the named we picked for our dog) we just knew! He has been a wonderful addition to our family and filled a huge hole in our hearts!-Clare Tower-Echevarria
"I rescued a stray cat from my neighborhood and brought him to SAS with a nice donation. I am so happy that he was cleaned up and neutered and found a forever, loving home. Bless the work these people do!"_Lynne Baldwin
"We adopted a Clay-11 Boxer/Hound puppy on October 2, 2017. She was one of the smaller ones but our children had fallen in love with her. Charlotte has quickly adapted to our entire family and we are so blessed to have her. She and our 13 yr. old beagle/boxer have become the best of friends. We have no regrets!"-Megan L. Marino
