Animal Shelter in the Mohawk Valley Since 1956

Our Animals Need Year Round Care. Here are ways that you can directly help and support them.

  • Please make a donation. Cash, checks, or credit cards are all accepted and greatly appreciated to help the shelter to purchase the items we need the most. All donations are tax deductible. Your donation will help us provide the quality care on a year round basis.
  • Consider sponsoring an animal. For one month of care $25 per animal will help cover expenses for that month.
  • Please become a member of the Humane Society of Rome. Individual memberships are only $25. Encourage family, friends and your place of business to become members. All memberships are tax deductible. They make wonderful gifts!
  • Become a Volunteer. Ask how you can get involved.
  • Donate items from our Wish List below. You can either drop them off at the shelter or call for a pick-up. Please remember, we need these items on a daily and monthly basis.
  • Finally, the most obvious, adopt one (or more!) of our beautiful, loving animals. They all need a forever home. Open your heart and hom. Give a stray  a home-adopt from our shelter.
