Mountain Hounds Hiking Program


North Country Animal League (NCAL) is excited to announce the Mountain Hounds
Hiking Program, a new initiative that will allow community members such as yourself to take our shelter dogs on hikes! Not only will these outing present an opportunity for community members to have fun excursions and deserved outdoor therapy, they will give our dogs awaiting homes much-needed socialization and exposure. This will increase their likelihood of getting adopted, which will in turn, reduce overall animal length of stay and help NCAL save more lives. 

PLEASE NOTE: Those who are interested must apply online, after which applicants will need to attend an orientation. Each outing will need to be signed up for in advance by a volunteer whose application has been approved and s/he has attended training for this program.

Space is currently full. We are no longer taking any more applications for this program. Thank you for understanding. 


Come find your next best friend!

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!
