ALBION — The Orleans County Animal Shelter remains closed to the public until further notice due to Covid-19.

Only animal control officers are permitted to enter the shelter and complete the adoption process at this time. We are now in the process of taking in stray dogs as well as voluntary surrenders of dogs and cats where applicable.

A list of our animals available for adoptions can be found on the Facebook page, “Friends of the Orleans County Animal Shelter.”

For any questions, please contact an animal control officer for a description or for a phone interview at (585) 589-5527.

We thank you for your understanding in this matter and appreciate your cooperation.
