PHS Mission Statement

MISSION STATEMENT – The Potsdam Humane Society operates a not-for-profit animal shelter, which provides care and protection to animals in need, including the returning of lost pets to their homes, giving proper medical attention and/or arranging for their quality adoption after spaying and neutering.

The Potsdam Humane Society aspires to be a shelter where an adoptable animal will never lose its life due to lack of space or cost of care, to educate the public regarding New York State animal cruelty laws and the humane treatment of animals emphasizing the importance of spaying and neutering, and to decrease the numbers of those unwanted and abandoned.
