I am very disappointed in how they handled my application for a special dog. At first Gail got back to me promptly, but was told that it would have to be forwarded to the director Nancy, which I never... got an email from. I reached out to her and she said well I sent it to you, but here it is. They kept saying this dog was extremely mouthy and declined me visiting the dog 4 days after the weekend I asked to meet him. You would think working at a shelter instead of demotivating me they would have offered other dogs as well since there are animals there that need homes. I have adopted many animals from here and not once did they ever question me. Maybe that is something you could do better next time, is suggest other dogs to people instead of disregarding them.

Today we adopted our second amazing dog to our family. Each time we had the most amazing experiences. The staff are friendly and genuinely care for their animals. To work in an industry where you cons...tantly see and hear of abuse must be one of the most trying experiences but they maintain their positivity which is great. Donations are always welcome and adoptions to loving homes are amazing so please head down. Yes adopting a dog means vet bills because they have limited resources and funds but if you are looking for a pet this is a no brainer and better be prepared to provide whatever is needed to your pet. Please research into owning a pet and be prepared to care for them before jumping into a big decision. Thanks again everyone! See More

Back in 2014 july 21st exactly, my son and myself went to the Humane society to look at dogs because we had lost our 5 yr old Golden Shadow to a massive heart attack ( never knew there was anything with his heart) on July 10th 2014. It was very hard on me as I was mournin the loss of Shadow but my adult son said "mom the house is too quiet" so down we went now to just look. I decided I wanted a small dog, all our other dogs were large dogs except for our American cocker Zeus who passed from cancer. So I thought a small dog would be eaiser for me to walk as I have MS and my balance is off. We saw all the dogs there and there was this girl sitting way back on the cot scared as hell. I tried talking to her but she was so scared, so I asked if we could take her out and see if she would perk up, she was having none of it. Then the girl there told me she had a father who was already adopted, well needless to say I got very pissed off even stating "why anyone would break up a family I will never understand" I said this to another worker while my son was talking to other dogs. The woman told me he was not adopted out he was in the hospital there with kennel cough. I asked her if we could see him and she went and brought himout to the viewing area outside. Needless to say my son and howie were such a match iy made me cry so they brouht honey (howie's daughter) out to see her dad and she became a new dog riht before my eyes, she was smilling really, and was all over her dad loving him up and so happy that I told the woman there I would take both of them(I refuse to break up a family) they told me the price and found out from the vet that howie could go home that day just a bit later he needed his meds. So we adopted the two of them Bluetick coonhounds without a home check or any kind of security check. Really, all I could think of was thank God we got them and not some asshole who fights dogs. Cannot complain about the staff, they are under a lot of pressure but to not find out what kind of people we are and what kind of house we have is not too smart on their part. But I have never been so glad to have these two family members we love so much. The only thing is they really should let people know what to expect from their pets like the baying they do at the trees and any animal they consider prey. I had no Idea what kind of dogs they were or the sounds they make but we have come to love that howl they make. And to let the people who know what Bluetick hounds are for they are used for hunting and NO mine do not hunt except in their own yard lol See More

Showed up at 5 after 4 for the free clinic to have my puppy get its shots and we were all told that they're not handing out any more tickets because people showed up at 1 this afternoon on December 7t...h will that's not fair it's very poorly managed because you know all these people are going to show up you should hold it more than once a month just very poor and very dissatisfied I've contacted Steve caporizzo to let him know about the poorness of this and you have a lot of unhappy people that showed up and were turned away because there were no more tickets See More

I got a tour today from the VP of Operations and I'll admit I was impressed. Very informative and the new place is so much nicer! I was surprised and impressed with how much they get to know their ani...mals and try to let them decompress and live "normal" lives as much as you can in a shelter. There's always room for improvement but animal welfare's a tough gig and they're doing the best they can! See More

My dog ran off and was picked up and brought here, City of Troy in conjunction with Mohawk Humane Society then proceeded to first try to charge me $35 for rabies shot because I didn't have his paperwo...rk. I faxed if from my vet, then they charged me $400 to release my dog. Highway robbery See More

Tonight they posted two siblings for adoption. I messaged them to see if they were still available, was told yes. I then asked how much for both, and could I bring my dog for a meet and greet. They d...idn't answer, but someone else messaged that they encourage meet and greets. I called to check on cost and got a recording that stated that dogs range from $75 to $350. They also stated that they will not hold dogs for anyone. So I grab my dog and within 10mins was tracking from East Greenbush to Menands during rush hour to check out these dogs. I get there and am told by the lady at the desk they were already adopted and she pointed to the room they were in. And low and behold there is a sign on the door stating they are under 24hour hold. I said to her I was told you don't hold animals for anyone. She said oh well we do when there is going to possibly be a sibling for a meet and greet. So that alone shows it is not a guaranteed adoption. While here I was with my dog in my arms as I was informed was the correct thing to do, but yet I was not allowed to adopt them because they were on hold for someone who may not even take them. I just wanted you to know that this is not how to run your shelter. You need to stand by what you state to be the rules. This is why people don't want to deal with shelters when looking for there forever pets. I for one will never ever again adopt from your shelter or probably from any other either. Nor will I ever donate to one. You can't just pick and choose who has to fallow your rules and who you will let them slide for. I do hope these two dogs do get a great forever home, but if this other person don't take them after the meet and greet remember that is on you for favoring them over someone who did exactly what YOUR RULES stated to do. God bless any poor animal who ends up in your hands if this is how you run things. See More

I adopted Jessie from here a little over two years ago. When I decided to adopt her, she had to stay in the shelter for an additional 4 days because she hadn't seen the vet yet! This was heart breakin...g but I can understand. I visited every day until I could bring her home. I dropped a blanket off that smelled like me and the house. They never put it in her kennel and stated that it was lost. I never received the blanket back. I then when I picked up my Jessie, I had to pick her up in the afternoon because she still had not seen the vet. I took her home and the following day she developed a cough and fever. I had to take her to the vet because I could not get a hold of anyone at your facility. She was found to have kennel cough and needed treatment. I called and attempted to notify them of the situation and I never received a phone call back. My dog was also matted and had such a terrible coat she had to be shaved down. The receptionist at the facility when I picked her up was abrasive and not willing to be helpful. Overall I love my Jessie however my my experience with the staff was terrible. See More

Rescued a dog about a week ago. Brought him back to ask questions about his non stop coughing. They said nothing is wrong and he has a clean bill of health. Looked at his feces and it is loaded with... worms. Called them back again they said there is nothing they will do to help him. Apparently they can rescue dogs lie about the health and then pawn them off on people. Such a disgrace. Read the paperwork very carefully before you adopt. They told me they sell the dogs "as is" like I'm buying a used car. See More

I adopted my first MHHS cat yesterday, a cutie by the name of Blade. The process was quick and easy. They even respected and upheld the fact that, although another couple wanted Blade too, I was They explained the whole process and explained all the paperwork. Blade hasn't been ours a full day yet and he's already family. Family that likes to butt heads. :) See More

I can't thank the Mohawk staff enough for taking such good care of our newest member of the family (Mollie). They were so patient with us and kept in contact while she had to stay there for 2 weeks af...ter surgery, due to kennel cough. Now we have two AMAZING dogs that both came from Mohawk Humane Society!

The Mohawk Hudson Humane Society CEO is personally involved in the investigation of the officers that intentionally hit a raccoon. He said he will make sure it’s fully involved. Someone placed a vid...eo of the same raccoon on this Humane Society page showing it wasn’t rabid a few hours before it was hit. They killed a healthy raccoon. See More

How about a little retail therapy for a good cause ... homeless kitties! These scratchers provide comfort and enrichment for the cats, especially those like Bear who have a hard time adjusting to the shelter after being in a home. Bear has come so far with foster care and the TLC of our staff. He's still a shy guy, but ready for a forever home. You can order these mini scratchers online and have them sent to us at MHHS, 3 Oakland Avenue, Menands, 12204. Bear and his friends thank you.
