Help Us Re-Build Our Shelter Drive

New Shelter Building Desperately Needed! Chronic overcrowded conditions is detrimental to the animals in our care. We need our community's support to do it!

A fundraising campaign for Warwick Valley Humane Society

Our Humane Society has been managing the dog shelter since it was built in 1968. Through the years our organization has renovated with additions to also care for cats, rabbits, pocket pets, birds and small and medium farm animals. 

Our 50 year old outdated facility has leaking roofs, inadequate space for the animals and staff, no ventilation and is in a constant state of disrepair.  We have one small isolation room for multiple needs and cannot separate the injured animals from the sick ones.

Our Capital Campaign mission is to improve indoor air quality and ventilation; create quarantine and treatment rooms; expand animal housing to include a kitten nursery, designated rooms for special needs; construct new kennels for small dogs and new intakes; separate food prep, laundry, grooming, break room; offices, outreach and meet & greet rooms; to expand ADA accessibility; multiple free roam cat rooms including a Cat Cafe; provide a safer, spacious and functional working and visitor friendly environment.

We truly appreciate your donation in support of this campaign!
