Adoption fees:

Cats $40.00*
Kittens $25*



*An additional $35.00 deposit fee is charged above the cost of adoption to ensure all animals are spayed or neutered. The $35.00 fee will be refunded once proof of spay/neuter has been provided.

As of April 1, 2012, due to an increase of medical cost, we will be raising the cat adoption fee to $40. It is our goal to adopt out healthy cats, who are up-to-date on vaccines, de-wormings, and tested for Feline Leukemia & Feline AIDS.

All of our dogs are micro-chipped.

HAHS’ Pet of the Week



My name is Winston and I came to the shelter as a stray in July 2014. I am a 1 1/2 year old male Catahoula mix. The shelter people think I am a gorgeous boy...they love my spots! I love attention and I love to go for walks. I would also greatly benefit from going for runs everyday because I have lots of energy! I just need someone to adopt me who is willing to take the time to train me, especially when it comes to walking gently on a leash. I just want to go go go! So I just need a little time and patience. I do know my basic commands for the most part, though. I can't wait 'til I find my forever home!






























Why should you adopt from the Hornell Area Humane Society?

It was with the unabated compassion and dedication of our staff, supporters and volunteers of the Hornell Area Humane Society was able to rescue over 575 animals from the dangers of animal cruelty, suffering and abandonment in 2013 – a monumental achievement made possible because of you!  Looking back on the year we are most grateful for the support, tireless efforts and partnership of our supporters in fighting the fight for animals.  Together we are making great progress in raising awareness and spreading knowledge to our community, helping to reduce the number of homeless pets through spay/neutering 850 animals, as well as building confidence for a brighter future in the field of Animal Rights.  We cannot thank you enough for all that you do for the animals and we are looking forward to continuing on this journey with you in 2014!!

Wishing you all the very best this holiday season and a happy, healthy New Year!


Calling All Donators!

We are currently in desperate need of monetary donations. We are over capacity with cats and dogs and are in need of vaccines and other medical supplies. It’s our goal to adopt out healthy animals who are up-to-date on their vaccinations and receive any medical attention that they need. We are struggling financially and would greatly appreciate your support.

Our flea treatment stock is getting very low! Many animals are coming in that are covered in flees and we are getting very low on our supply. The brands we use here at the shelter are Advantage, Advantix & Frontline. (Recently expired product is ok to donate as well) If anyone wishes to donate some, we would greatly appreciate it!
