It’s 2015, and the Animal Shelter of Schoharie Valley is turning 40! Our application to form a Not-For-Profit Corporation was formally approved on February 11, 1975 by then-Attorney General Louis Lefkowitz, and we are proud to be marking four decades’ service to our community and its animals. We will be commemorating this milestone with Shelter events throughout 2015. Please check your local paper, this website, and our “Animal Shelter of Schoharie Valley” Facebook page for upcoming news and updates.

You can show your appreciation of our important mission by supporting our new, year-long 40th Anniversary Appeal. Our Shelter has always relied primarily on donations and volunteer fundraising efforts to finance the services we provide, and during 2015 we hope to raise $40,000 in recognition of our 40 years of operation. Please consider making a tax-deductible donation in any amount. All supporters will be added to our mailing list and will receive our newsletter, plus advance notice of special Shelter events. Supporters reaching the following levels will receive additional gifts as our way of saying “thank you”:
