We're made up of individuals that have dedicated themselves to our cause of rescuing, caring for and helping dogs. Every member of staff and volunteer is a key part of progress. Life has brought us all together to fulfill the mission of Ulster County Canines. We're here to serve the community , enhancing the Human-Canine and Canine-Canine bond. Our founders and Team never call out sick, always work holidays, never take a vacation, or are away from the facility very long. We work for the dogs to better their lives. We do that as much as we physically emotionally and mentally can. The U.C.C team is made up of driven, motivated individuals that simply will not rest untill every U.C.C dog has a home of their own. We support and provide for U.C.C dogs before and after adoption. However we are a small team that accomplishes alot with very little. Adoptions, prior to adoption care, and after adoption care. And we can use all the help we can get! consider volunteering or making a donation of your choice.
Ulster County Canines is a non-profit whose mission is to provide temporary shelter and finding of adoptive homes for dogs in need. Please continue to the bottom of the page to read out full mission statement.
