Our Mission Statement 


The James A. Brennan Memorial Humane Society is a private, non-profit, compassionate organization devoted to securing permanent, responsible, loving homes for the animals of Fulton County. The organization strives to achieve its mission through education and prevention of animal suffering. We receive no revenue from the State of New York. Our revenue comes thru contracts with local communities, fund raising and donations.

This shelter serves the Fulton County community in many ways:

  1. Provides shelter, food, water, medical care and safety to stray, homeless and unwanted cats and dogs.
  2. Helps families find new animal companion.
  3. Returns lost pets to their owners.
  4. Teaches humane education in schools, kindness towards animals: safety around animals, the link between animal cruelty and violence against humans and builds self-confidence.
  5. Has the most aggressive Spay/Neuter Program for low income families in Fulton County.
  6. Pet Food Bank for Seniors in Fulton County, helping seniors with financial difficulties feeding their companions.
  7. Girl Scouts merit badge programs.
  8. Alternative School Program, providing work-study opporunities for students .
  9. Advocates for Animal Law at the State and Federal levels.
Perhaps most importantly the Brennan Humane Society provides a tangible example of humane ethics and compassion for all living creatures.
