New PHS Website coming soon!

E-mail Print PDF


Over the next several weeks, you will find our website undergoing major updates. Our current website software has been out of date for some time and has been exhibiting a number of "odd" behaviors.  The effort to update the software was a major task and it was decided to re-think what was most important about our website and to redesign it to meet those needs.

Janessa Hargrave, a local website developer and employee of Clarkson University, volunteered to take on this task for us.  She has been diligently working on this project for us and is nearly ready for the site to go live.  You'll know when it happens because it will have a very different look and feel to it.  We hope you will find these changes useful and the site easier to navigate.  We welcome your feedback.

Hilary Oak, store manager, presented the quilt which made over three hundred dollars for operations at the Potsdam Humane Society. Thanks to all who supported the raffle.


Bubba Needs a Home!

E-mail Print PDF

Bubba Chubba has lived at the shelter much too long. He would prefer to have his humans all to himself, so a home with no other pets is ideal. Once away from the shelter “hub-bub”, he settles and walks well on leash. He is smart and loving, and would love to learn tricks to please his human companion. Sometimes he does not know that he is not a lap dog and expects he can jump in your lap and love you!

Potsdam Humane Society is looking for the perfect match for Bubba Chubba and is sure that the right person just has to find out about this happy guy is looking for him or her. Please tell everyone you know about this wonderful dog, and all the others at PHS that want to go home for the holidays.

PHS Thanks Ponderosa’s Jeff Prosper

E-mail Print PDF

For yet another year, the generosity of Ponderosa owner Jeff Prosper has helped the animals at the Potsdam Humane Society. On August 16, Jeff hosted at his restaurant a car wash in memory of Chad Fuller, a local veteran who lost his young life in Afghanistan, and raised over 500 dollars to help the needy animals.

In spite of less than perfect weather, the community supported the event. The Humane Society is always grateful for these kinds acts. Mr. Prosper bought new hose nozzles, supplied the water and car wash venue, sent pizza and soda “curb side” to keep the volunteers energized.

Potsdam is fortunate to have so many caring business owners like Jeff at Ponderosa, who support local nonprofits.
