Mission

The Humane Society of Westchester, founded in 1911 as the New Rochelle Humane Society, is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to promoting the human/animal bond through the compassionate care and treatment of animals throughout the communities we serve in Westchester County and beyond. To that end, our goal is to create a living environment that is not just a shelter, but a transitional home for stray, lost, abandoned, injured, and abused animals, until they can ultimately be placed in loving permanent homes. Through promotion of successful pet adoption, animal population control, and public education of animal welfare issues, we advance our belief that pet ownership is a lifetime commitment. We service 19 communities in Westchester County.

The Humane Society of Westchester provides animal rescue services to 19 communities in Westchester County giving safe haven to lost, stray, abandoned and injured domesticated animals. These rescued animals make up the majority of the animals who enter our shelter. Some have simply lost their way home while others have been abandoned. Our responsibility is to provide them with safe refuge, medical treatment and an abundance of love while they are in our care. We find pets new, loving homes if they cannot be reunited with their families.

Low cost spay/neuter certificates for cats and dogs can be purchased at our shelter seven days a week. The cost of the certificate varies depending upon the species and weight of a pet. The certificate is honored by a number of local veterinarians who reduce their own fees with use of the certificate.

Population(s) Served
Adults

All animals who come into the shelter are micro-chipped.  We also offer this service to the community. Having one’s pet micro-chipped is a great, inexpensive way to ensure that he or she has permanent identification. Micro-chipping is included in the cost of every adoption, but is also available to the general public on a drop-in basis. The microchip fee is $45 and includes implant and registration.

Feral cat colonies are a growing problem and the problem grows larger with each litter of kittens born into a colony. Since feral cats are not socialized with humans, they are not candidates for adoption. We seek to reduce the number of feral cats while increasing their quality of life through our Trap, Neuter and Return program. This program, started in 2007, has shown to be the most efficient and humane way to stabilize a feral cat colony.

Community residents trap the cats and bring them to the Humane Society of Westchester where they are spayed or neutered. The cost of TNR is $60 per cat and includes the spay/neuter procedure, rabies vaccination and ear tipping (for identification purposes). Optional vaccinations and treatments are offered for additional fees.
