The Regional Animal Shelter is a volunteer run, not-for-profit, no-kill animal shelter founded in 2002.

Donations of supplies are greatly needed and appreciated!!!!

(especially bleach, laundry soap, and peanut butter!)

Our little shelter is full of awesome dogs waiting to find their forever home.
Have you met them yet?
(They think you should…and so do we.)

Have a little spare time? Love animals? Want to make a difference in someone’s life?
Join the Regional family and help animals in need!
We need volunteers to help care for our animals and fundraise for our expenses – it takes a village to run a shelter!
We need fosters for both dogs and cats!
We need YOU!

It’s looking to be a fun year! Check our our events calendar, and come visit! We love to see our friends and family!

After years of hard work and dedication, we are pleased to announce that in May 2012 we opened our Annex building located at 117 West Fulton Street in Gloversville, NY.

Currently, Regional Animal Shelter provides dogs from the City of Gloversville a safe and loving haven, while waiting to be reunited with their families or be adopted into new loving homes. With the help of supporters like you, we are planning to build a new full service facility in the community. We are raising funds and submitting grants for the purchase of land suitable for building (or a pre-existing structure suitable for retrofitting), design of a shelter, and completion of the facility. Only by building can we meet the needs of our community and we can’t do it without your support. For any community member who has come to visit the Annex knows that we are sorely in need of space. By expanding, we will be able to help many more animals within our community, and more than just dogs (yay, kitties!!)!

BrickOur new facility will include:

  • separate dog and cat rooms with radiant heat flooring
  • accommodations for large animals
  • an on premise surgical room to offer low-cost spay and neuter programs, vaccination, and microchip clinics
  • a boarding facility
  • a grooming area
  • visiting rooms for families to meet their newest furry additions
  • a community room for educational and training classes
  • a lobby with a gift shop
  • a memorial garden and a dog walk


Here at Regional Animal Shelter, we believe that all animals deserve a safe, loving home. We also feel that education and awareness is key to eliminating the over population and animal cruelty crisis facing our communities. By offering low-cost spay and neutering services, low-cost rabies and vaccination clinics, grooming and nail clipping services, and classes on training and healthcare, we are confident that we will be successful in resolving these issues.
