Dogs and Puppies.
At this time Adirondack Save A Stray is not rescuing any dogs or puppies. We are focusing on our Community Outreach program and taking in stray and unwanted cats and kittens.
We do often help re-home local dogs, so please visit our Facebook page for those updates.
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
