Low Cost Spay / Neuter Options

Millions of healthy
loving animals are
killed annually
because there
are not enough
homes for them.
Lets stop the killing
of innocent animals
and work together
as a responsible
Spay and Neuter
is the ONLY answer!

Nine-Year old celebrates birthday with a gift to the kitties...

Her 9th birthday was a HAPPY day for the rescued kitties at Animalkind! Alexandra made a generous donation to Animalkind's kitties.

Alexandra has a heart of gold. Only 9 years old, she shows her compassion and love for the animals. Often she comes in to visit and play with the kitties at Animalkind's shelter at 721 Warren Street in Hudson. On her 9th birthday it was her wish to make a donation to Animalkind's felines!

Many Purrs and Thanks to Alexandra! Way to go, girl!!

    We are A group of compassionate and caring people who help animals who are helpless, mainly stray & feral cats, but not exclusively.

    Spay - Neuter Programs:

    We got the city of Hudson to create a spay/neuter fund for the residence of Hudson, that means that everybody, living here can spay/neuter their pet for (cats & dogs) for only $10.00!!   We hope that will help to stop the birth of so many unwanted animals.

    Our Feral Cat Program: The TNR (Trap/Neuter/Return) method is our effort to control the overwhelming problem of overpopulation of unwanted cats. Feral/Stray cats are humanely trapped, transported to a vet for spaying/neutering/inoculating and than, after their ear is notched for recognition, are returned to their managed colony, where they can live out their life. Our caretakers will feed the colonies (17 in Hudson and Columbia County, caring for 480 feral cats) every day and shelters are built against the elements. The cats are monitored on a daily base. Shelters are built for the winter to provide protection from the elements. Sick or injured cats are medically attended and either released after recovery or adopted out into loving homes.

    Our Adoption Program:
    If cats are found who are tame or kittens, they are tested for Fel.Leukaemia and FIV, they get spayed/neutered/vaccinated and are placed in foster homes until adoptive homes are found. We follow a thorough adoption process and guarantee to take the animal back if care is no longer granted.

    Our Rescue Program:
    We are receiving more and more calls for abused, neglected and injured animals. One of our volunteers will follow up on the complain and assist in the situation.
    Animalkind also provides assistance for low income pet owners and will give out bedding, dog/cat houses and food for the ones in need.
