Welcome to

Ayres Memorial Animal Shelter, Inc!


Ayres will be closed to the public until further notice.

We are sorry for the inconvenience, but are so thankful for the continued support!

A huge thank you to everyone who came out this weekend and supported Ayres by getting gorgeous Christmas pictures!
And this weekend would not have been possible without the amazing photographer who was remarkable to work with and phenomenal with the animals and their families.

Thank you Tailored Tailored Petography by Connie Ryder !!!

We have so missed seeing all of you at our normal events. It truly was a breath of fresh air to be able to say Hi to you and your pets - all while supporting the dogs and kitties calling Ayres home.

**Also! What a weekend for donations and a few kitties went to their purrfect forever homes! We got nearly 500 pounds of kitty litter donated, lots of treats, dog and cat food, blankets for the pets, cleaners and laundry soap, papers for kitty cages and bottles/cans to be cashed in for funds. Thankful all around!!**

(NOTE: This one picture is just from my phone.)

Pupdate: Toby boy will be going back home! 🥰

Stray pup!

This handsome guy was found tonight near Schoharie Crossing in the Town of Glen.

We aren't 100%, but he looks like a pup that was with us last September as a stray named Toby. We tried to contact the owner on file, but the number is no longer his.

Please share and help us get this guy back home.

Any owners can message us here or call/text 518-705-2278.
