Your Donation Can Help Provide a Safe Refuge for Homeless Animals in their Greatest Time of Need!​

Since 1959, our shelter has been running 24/7. We have served the community by taking in abandoned and abused animals and providing families who could no longer keep their pets, a safe place to surrender them. We have also serviced nearby towns and cities by providing their law enforcement departments with a place to bring animals found as strays, reported as aggressive and seized in the course of performing their duties.

Today, HSPJ is considered a limited-admissions animal shelter which means we do not euthanize animals due to lack of space. Each of the 650+ abandoned and abused animals we took in last year from the surrounding area are looked at as individuals and given every possible chance at finding their happily ever after.

We provide so much more than just food and shelter. Our animals receive medical treatment, socialization, behavior training, enrichment, exercise, and lots of love. We strive to match our animals with adopters based on a wide-range of criteria to ensure it is a good fit for both.

At the Humane Society of Port Jervis/Deerpark, we offer homeless animals a second chance at a first-rate life.

But now the shelter that has helped so many, needs help! The Humane Society of Port Jervis/Deerpark is in a dire state of disrepair! The concrete holding the fence panels & gates of the kennels and the outside dog runs is literally crumbling causing the panels to fall and ultimately causing those kennels to be inoperable, the cat cages do not meet the minimal space requirements between cat litter, food and sleeping area, we do not have proper ventilation in any of our buildings or isolation areas to keep disease from spreading from one animal to another, Worse yet, there is no insulation in the enclosed outdoor kennel runs and the windows have single panes that shatter from ice build up. Our heat bills in the winter are exorbitant for this reason. Every area of the facility is in a serious need of renovation.

Without proper housing for our animals we cannot continue to help the communities around us, nor can we provide shelter for those that have no voice. PLEASE HELP US by donating to the Building Fund! Every penny you provide will go entirely to the repair and renovation of our facilities so that we may continue the Mission of our founder, Robert Kleinstuber.
