Here are a few words from the incredible team at Animalkind:

Animalkind responds to emergency rescue situations, works closely with law enforcement regarding animal abandonment and cruelty cases, as well as provides medical care and solutions to pet owners in crisis.  We provide a place of protection and refuge at our adoption center and in foster homes.  All our adoptable cats and kittens are tested for FelV, altered, vaccinated for rabies and distemper and micro-chipped.  With each adoption we provide one month free health insurance for the adopted cat.

We require an adoption application: Adoptions are free, donations appreciated.   You can call us at: 518-822-8643

Spirit Essences: Holistic Remedies for Animals

Every Shelter of the Month receives a 32 oz. bottle of Stress Stopper.

Stress Stopper is formulated for all animals, not just cats.  It helps animals feel grounded and protected, which makes it great for the occasional, short-duration stresses that an animal faces: trips to the vet, thunder and lightning, fireworks, parties, vacuum cleaner, lawnmower, machinery, visitors and house guests, vacations (if the animal is boarded or has a pet-sitter), unusual noises (remodeling, construction, roadwork, etc.), arguments with other animals, repairpersons.  It is also good for animals who are left home alone all day, to prevent boredom and stress.

As you can see, Stress Stopper is an all-around remedy, which has made it one of the best-selling remedies in the Spirit Essences line.


Stretch & Scratch 

As a shelter volunteer, Joan Laisney saw scratch marks on cage walls and shelving by shelter cats’ attempts to perform natural behaviors: stretching their muscles, scratching to clean their nails and scent mark with paws.

After months of testing, Joan designed a scratcher for caged cats that is sturdy, easy to install and affordable in a tight economy.

Every Shelter of the Month receives a case of these awesome scratchers!  Thank you Stretch & Scratch!
