Welcome to the website of the James A. Brennan Memorial Humane Society  



James A. Brennan Memorial Humane Society is asking for donations.

We need your help. We have been working on a local animal cruelty/neglect case. We took 5 dogs and multiple cats. These animals were surrendered to us by the owners. This person/family is a repeat offender. The local authorities are aware of the situation and were present at the scene. We can’t speak for them, so we are unsure if charges will be forthcoming at this time, that is something that will be up to law enforcement. What we do know is that these animals are a mess, both medically and emotionally. They are going to require thousands of dollars of medical care and will be putting a strain on our already strained resources. Our greatest needs right now are bleach, paper towels, and Purina One dry and canned dog food. While these animals are not yet available for adoption we have many others that are.

Thank you for always supporting our mission!

The big day is getting closer! After nearly 16 months, we’re hoping to move into our new building in the upcoming weeks.

There are a few things we’re still in need of that we’re hoping people can help with. We are looking for;

  • 1 OR 2 used, but clean and in good condition refrigerators.
  • 1 OR 2 leather couches or armchairs, used but clean and in good condition.

    These will be in our community meet and greet room. If any of these things are something you have that

    you’re waiting to find a good home for please message us.

    Thank you for your continued support.

This sweet older lady was picked up as a stray on River Rd. in the town of Hope, NY. She is microchipped and we know her name is Bindi but the owners info. Is no longer valid. We believe she was either given to someone else who didn’t update her microchip or possibly dumped. Please share this sweet lady, if she still has an owner we would like her to go home.




Flex! This handsome guy knows a few basic commands and loves to play ball. He would make an excellent companion for someone who is willing to give him a chance at a forever home. Flex is neutered, vaccinated, microchipped, and 4dx tested.


He cuddles, he plays, he can even pull your sleigh (okay probably not so much, but he does make a really cute reindeer). It’s Gadget! This guy is very stressed at the shelter and would really like to be in a home. Gadget should be your only pet. With a guy like him that does it all, do you really need anyone else? He’s neutered, vaccinated, microchipped, and 4dx tested.
