Only 1 out of 10 dogs born ever get a home. Only 1 out of 12 cats born ever find a home. 800 dogs & cats are KILLED each HOUR in the U.S, because there are not enough homes for them. Saving one animal may not change the world, but, it will surely change the world for that one animal.

We are always looking for foster homes! There is a great need for people who would be willing to foster one of these lovely guys until we can find them a forever home. More foster homes mean more that can be saved. If you are interested in getting more information on fostering, please call or send and email to the contact information included at the bottom of this page.
As active members of the Seneca Siberian Husky club, we realized there was a need for rescue volunteers who could work with some of the local shelters and assist with the fostering and placement of Siberians in need. The club also receives numerous calls from individuals who are either looking to adopt a rescued Siberian or surrender a Siberian for personal reasons. We decided to provide this service as we are avid fans of the breed and have the facilities and experience to do so. The Club itself does not provide this service; it is however its members which hope to compliment the club in its endeavors for the common good of our beloved Siberian Huskies.
These requirements are based on the characteristics of the breed.
We require all pets that are adopted through our rescue program go to homes with fenced yards. This can be chain link, stockade or invisible fencing. If you currently do not have a fenced yard and are not willing to invest in fencing for your new Siberian, please do not contact us. No Exceptions.
We receive many inquiries from people looking to adopt a Siberian that own small dogs and/or cats. Although many Sibs get along fine with small dogs and cats, the dogs will need to be personally tested with your existing animals. If for any reason we feel it is not safe, we will not move forward with the adoption. We would also like to caution you if your home contains other small animals like birds, ferrets, rabbits, and so forth - it most likely will not work out unless these animals are totally kept separate from the dogs!
Many huskies are escape artists and many of the dogs we receive were picked up by local dog control officers for wandering the streets. Many owners are not prepared for the energy these dogs have and the exercise they require. Typical huskies are highly intelligent, easily bored, and apt to get into trouble if they don't receive proper obedience training and sufficient exercise, this is why we require fenced yards.
In addition, many huskies although normally gentle and friendly with people and other dogs, have strong predatory instincts. If you are considering owning one of these wonderful dogs, you MUST be aware that small animals in and around the home, such as squirrels, rabbits, birds, guinea pigs, hamsters, and CATS, are potential victims of their predatory instinct. They are swift, cunning, and patient in their hunting skills.
Most of the Siberians that you see on our website are currently in our foster care. All are temperament tested by a professional behavior consultant, fully vetted, and have been approved to go to forever homes. If you are interested in meeting one of these lovely dogs, please contact us by phone at 585-576-1724 or email us at
Adoptions through our rescue require an application process, home visit, and a veterinary reference if you have owned pets in the past. Due to the home visit, we ask that all applicants are within the Western NY area (Rochester, Syracuse and Buffalo).
Our adoption fee for most of our dogs is $250.00. We do provide discounts based on age, special needs, or in situations where it is a multiple adoption. This covers the following: ?Pull fee? that we are charged from the local pounds to take the dog into rescue which averages $100.00, all vet bills for heart worm and parasite testing, heart worm preventative, obedience coupon for 10 percent off a basic class, and food ? all of our Siberians are on a Pro Plan diet.
Our work is strictly volunteer and all funds for this labor of love come from the adoption fees and donations from wonderful people like you. All of our dogs are fully vetted including annual shots, de-worming, heartworm testing, flea medications and spay/neuter. We also require that adopters sign up for one obedience class within 90 days of adoption. We work with Animal Behavior Specialists for classes and will provide a discount coupon, if interested. Classes are held in Monroe County and outlining areas, so you should be able to find a location that is convenient.
