Please note: we do not accept unsolicited animals from the public for the sanctuary. This is responsible, since we are a micro-sanctuary and can only properly care for a limited number of animals.  We are not an animal shelter or adoption agency.  If you have an animal that needs to be surrendered, please contact your local no-kill shelter.  If you would like to adopt a new family pet, please visit

For general questions about the sanctuary, please email 

For Press requests or to book Kathy for a lecture or event, please email

For animal behavior questions, please email   .  Please note that we are very busy caring for the animals.  It may take several days to respond to an email.

For questions about The Chix Fund, please email   .  Please note that we have stringent criteria for recipients.

MOST ANIMALS AT SHS ARE NOT AVAILABLE FOR ADOPTION.  However, occasionally we have an animal at SHS that is up for adoption.  If you would like to know more about one of the adoptable SHS animals, please email   .  Please note that we only adopt animals out to the NYC area, since we require a home check.  If there are no SHS animals currently up for adoption and you would like to adopt a new family pet, please visit
