Adopt a new friend!

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 Malcom and I came to the shelter as a stray in October 2014. I am a 2 1/2 month old male. I came in with my 4 other siblings, but they have all since been adopted. I am a fun, sweet, playful, spunky boy! I also love be around the other kittens!

Dog Yard opening soon!!

Support from Animal Farm Foundation has allowed the Hornell Area Humane Society to construct the play yard to benefit shelter dogs. Play yards the best way for shelter dogs to experience enrichment and socialize. Socialization for shelter dogs is essential for the dogs' physical and mental well-being and will result in sending more dogs home, faster.

The dog yard about one acre in size is in tribute to Jillian Andolina, a former volunteer and great supporter of our shelter dogs!

The new dog yard will be for shelter and public use. Stay tuned for more information.



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!
