The Putnam Humane Society is a not for profit animal shelter located in Putnam County, NY. We were founded in 1957 as one of the first no-kill shelters in the country by Marjorie Jenkins who started the society in a small barn on Nichols Street. We have since moved to our current location on Old Route 6 behind Putnam Plaza and have expanded and improved throughout the years, and continue to grow to meet the needs of our community and pet population as funds permit.
