For the Love of Animals

Like you, we love animals.
Like you, we want to help animals.

The Capital District Humane Association was formed in response to the serious need for a private animal welfare group to serve the Capital Region of New York State.

About Us

We Find Pets New Homes!

CDHA takes in animals who are unwanted, abandoned, unable to be kept by their owners or otherwise needy. And these animals are kept for an unlimited time at no charge to the former owner until a home is found.
