About Us

  • What Is The Warren County SPCA?We are a 501(c)3 organization that operates as its own entity but contracts with municipalities for animal control services. We report to and serve in conjunction with the Warren County Sheriff Department. We are law enforcement for local municipal codes, NYS Ag & Markets and can investigate cruelty cases for prosecution.
  • We as animal control cover all of Warren County for injured and abandoned cats, wildlife as it pertains to rabies exposure, stable welfare checks upon request, and we handle the dog control for the following towns: Queensbury, Lake George, Lake Luzerne, Warrensburg, Thurman and Bolton.
  • We receive about 3,000 calls per year regarding animal control issues. We field calls through our 24/7 hotline which is our answering service 518-793-4048. We respond to calls Mon-Saturday 8am-8pm. After hours calls will be returned and handled the following morning. We do respond to emergency calls after hours at the request of the Warren County Sherriff Department.
  • We adopt out over 100 animals a year, and we use local rescue partners to assist in the adoption of cats due to the overpopulation issue of cats in Warren County. We have working partnerships with HOPE rescue, Northshore Animal League and Mohawk Hudson Humane Society.
  • We do educational presentations for local schools upon request.
