Caring for pets means meeting a wide range of needs beyond health care. Fortunately, there’s a whole community of organizations and businesses eager to help.

Here’s where to meet the local groups that we recommend to our pet-loving families.

Animal Protection Foundation

The shelter was founded by a group of volunteers led by Mrs. Jesse Carpenter and was incorporated as the Animal Protective Foundation of Schenectady, Inc. on August 12, 1931. It was established to provide care and protection to domestic animals and was first operated out of a garage on Balltown Road.
