Sweet Sassy !


S.U.N.A. is an incorporated non-profit humane society ( 501c-3 ) operating in New York State under a FOSTER CARE system - that's what makes us unique. We are devoted to saving the lives of unwanted animals and believe that a foster care environment makes a difference. Should a pet never find a home, our foster families become a PERMANENT loving sanctuary, where they will live out their lives enjoying the love and care that they deserve ! S.U.N.A. is strictly a volunteer agency and has no paid employees, therefore your donations go directly toward the welfare of the animals. Please visit our ADOPTABLE PET LIST to find your new best friend or send a generous donation toward providing permanent care for S.U.N.A.'s animals who never find that special home - Thank You !


S.U.N.A. finds great homes for healthy adoptable pets, one at a time ! When you adopt a pet, your donation helps to continue our program and support the next animal who comes through our doors. We provide the best medical care for each animal, as well as spaying and neutering, before they leave our program. Our adoption process is extensive and home visitation of perspective "parents" is required in order to find the best home suited for each animal's need ! If you are interested in adopting, please call or email us for more detailed information. You'll be glad knowing you're bringing home a heathly happy well adjusted pet to become a wonderful new family member !


S.U.N.A. has a perpetual care program that provides a PERMANENT home for unwanted, neglected, unadoptable or older animals, like Buddy in the picture with one of our foster parents. We provide a loving environment that they need in order to maintain a healthy normal well deserved life style for the rest of their days. One of our foster homes is an organic fruit orchard and honey farm where produce donations help provide for this type of care. We ship our organic apple blossom HONEY across the country - if you are interested please 585-493-9656 to make arrangements for shipment ! THANKS to all of you for the many donations received for their perpetual and medical care. And thanks to those who volunteer their time in helping these animals live out a full and happy life !

Kuranda Dog Beds



A dog sits waiting in the cold Autumn sun-
Too faithful to leave, too frightened to run.
He's been there for days now with nothing to do
But sit by the road, waiting for you.
He can't understand why you left him that day.
He thought you and he were stopping to play.
He's sure you'll come back, and that's why he stays.
How long will he suffer ? How many more days ?
His legs have grown weak, his throat parched and dry;
He's sick now from hunger, and
He falls with a sigh.
He lays down his head, and he closes his eyes-
I wish you could see how a waiting dog dies.
From the winter 2000 news letter of Hearts United for Animals


My job is to assist all creatures
I was born with the need to fulfill their needs
I take in new family members without plan or forethought
I have bought dog food with my last dime
I have patted a mangy head with a bare hand
I have hugged someone vicious and afraid
I have fallen in love a thousand times
and I have cried into the fur of a lifeless body
I have "Animals Friends" and "friends who have animals"
I don't often use the word "pet"
I notice those lost at the road side
And my heart aches
I will hand raise a field mouse
And make friends with a vulture
I know of no creature unworthy of my time
We may be master of the animals,
But the animals have mastered themselves
Something people still have not learned
War and abuse makes me hurt for the world
But a rescue that makes the news gives me hope for mankind
We are a quiet but determined army
And we are making a difference every day
There is nothing more necessary than warming an orphan
Nothing more rewarding than saving a life
No higher recognition than watching them thrive
There is no greater joy than seeing a puppy play
Who only days ago was too weak to eat
I am an Animal Rescuer
My work is never done
My home is never quiet
My wallet is always empty
But my heart is always full!
In the game of life, I have already won!

A Poem Written by James Willis

I looked at all the caged animals in the shelter....the cast-offs of human society.
I saw in their eyes love & hope, fear & dread, sadness & betrayal.
I was angry. "God," I said, "this is terrible! Why don't you do something?"
God was silent for a moment and then spoke softly,
"I have done something," was the reply. "I created you."
