Mission:
Guilderhaven, inc. is a 501(c)(3) non-for-profit that provides low-cost spay/neuter, food, medical intervention, and financial assistance for the companion animals of New York residents and for wildlife.  We also assist rescue organizations in this endeavor, with an emphasis on our local community
Results:
In 2012, we facilitated the spay/neuter of 597 cats!  Along with the Cat Care Coalition (CCC), we started a low cost dog spay/neuter clinic in May 2009.  As a result, we were able to spay/neuter 257 dogs in 2012!  In addition, we continue to help place animals from private homes, rescue groups and animal shelters, speak to school groups, youth organizations, and church groups, and produce an educational coloring booklet.  This booklet emphasizes the importance of responsible pet guardianship and humane behavior toward animals.  
As a result of our hard work we were recently awarded a $5000 grant from the William Gundry Broughton Charitable Private Foundation, Inc. and another $5000 grant from the Doris Day Animal Foundation for our low cost spay/neuter efforts in Schenectady, New York.  We are so grateful for their support and continue to strive to educate the public on the importance of humane pet guardianship. These programs enable us in assisting these pet guardians in maintaining their responsibility to their companion animals while continuing their loving relationship without the financial burden.  In addition, we are helping decrease the number of unwanted and abandoned animals in the shelters and on the streets.

I have found Guilderhaven, Inc. to be a valuable resource for Greyhounds As Companions, Inc. They have found donated dog food for us, as well as many other products, bedding, supplements, medications, etc., and donated them to us. Sue Green is also working on a way for my granddaughter to get her ... more »
