Friends! During everything that is going on, Ayres will be closed to the public.

As many of you know, we have a very small staff and for the sake of our animals' care, it is imperative that we keep them all healthy. Know that our animals will still be getting the same care that they always get - and they'll actually be able to get even more one on one time and work.

*Ayres will still be taking in stray dogs as they are found, so please be sure to contact your animal control officer if you find a dog! Owners will be able to pick up their dogs with appointments, too.

*We will not be holding any spay/neuter clinics during this time.

*We will be processing adoptions, but we do ask that you Facebook message us here or email to find out about specific animals or to find out what the process will be.

*We will be accepting donations! They can be shipped directly to the shelter at 133 Hilltop Rd Sprakers NY 12166 to save you the trips/coming out. (Right now we are most in need of Purina one dog chow (any flavor) and purina dog chow (green bag). Or donations can be left on our front porch in front of the entrance.

Please be patient and take this time to be home with your loved ones and your pets. We know everyone is trying to figure this all out and what exactly is best to do. But we promise you on our end, our animals will know the same love and care as they always do.

Our pups and kitties thank the

for their life saving support!
