The mission of the Animal Protective Foundation of Schenectady is to address pet overpopulation and animal suffering through education and appropriate action, to enhance human/animal relationships, and to provide care to animals in need.
The health and background of the animals brought to us varies greatly, making our first priorities
for them safety, comfort
and medical care. Upon arrival, animals receive an incoming exam and are vaccinated against
distemper, rabies and other
diseases. They are also dewormed and treated for external parasites, including fleas and ear mites.
Then they are given time
to settle into their new surroundings and provided with comforting amenities, such as blankets, beds
We get to know our dogs and cats through personality and behavioral assessments so that we can place them with adopters whose lifestyles best match their needs. Staff members and volunteers also provide daily exercise and socialization for the animals.
