NCAL’s mission is to promote the culture of compassion for all beings in our community. This is why NCAL offers many opportunities for public members to interact with shelter animals and learn about the homeless pet population issue, as well as solutions to address the problem through our education and outreach programs for kids and adults.
NCAL believes that a mind we help shape today is one who will help us create a more compassionate tomorrow. We are committed to providing humane education programs both at the shelter as well as offsite locations to nurture young ambassadors to become voices for animals in our community and beyond.
NCAL offers positive-reinforcement based training classes throughout the year for both puppies and adult dogs. Positive Reinforcement Training uses praise and or treats to reward your dog for doing something you want him/her to do because the reward makes your dog more likely to repeat the behavior. All classes take place at our shelter.

To date, North Country Animal League has taken in, cared for, and found homes for over 11,000 homeless animals. Connecting humans with animals is what we do best - whether it be through adoptions, education and outreach, or volunteer opportunities. We created this video to show you what you can expect when you come to NCAL to find your next best friend!
