Success Stories!

Below you can view some of our adoption success stories, enjoy!


Gizzy is a 7 year old American Bulldog mix who spent nearly 2 years here at the Saratoga County Animal Shelter.  He quickly captured the hearts of all of the staff and volunteers and became a favorite to walk.  Time after time new dogs came and went, yet Gizzy remained.  For the life of all of us here we could not figure out what it was holding Gizzy up with us.  Gizzy struggled with a fair amount of skin allergies and dietary issues and yet was always a happy-go-lucky dog!  We found out that he was the one being picky and was waiting for his great furever family to come in and adopt him and it could not have been a better fit! Best of luck to Gizzy and his adopters! 



Ace is a 4-year old Doberman who came to us many months ago. Many times at the shelter, we experience difficult cases, both behaviorally and medically. Our goal as a staff is to work closely with our animals to ensure the best chance of success, and Ace is truly an example! Although he came in with both medical and behavioral challenges, our staff and volunteers were able to provide top care and enrichment that eventually led to his heartwarming adoption. We are extremely grateful for a wonderful family who came forward to give Ace an amazing forever home! Thank you to all of our volunteers and staff who worked do diligently to ensure Ace’s success!



Jasper is a 5 year old American Stafford-shire Terrier who came to us in 2016. During his stay with us, Jasper won the hearts of many volunteers and staff members. Whether it was through his good looks or outgoing personality, Jasper always found a way to put a smile on everyone’s face here at the shelter. When you have the opportunity to work with animals day in and day out, you truly develop a bond with them. It is fair to say that when Jasper left us, it was a bitter sweet moment for everyone here at the shelter, but their is truly nothing like seeing an animal find their forever home! Jasper is now living comfortably with his new family!




Chloe is a 2 year old rottweiler/lab mix. She spent a fair amount of time here at the shelter and she grew, both physically and mentally, a lot during that time. Chloe is a true testament to how caring and dedicated our volunteers are to the shelter and the animals. Our volunteers worked with Chloe everyday to ensure the highest chance of success in her new home. Her energy and intelligence created some challenges, but that didn’t stop anyone! Chloe and her loving personality finally left our care and we are so grateful to the family who has given her a forever home!
