Attorney PJ Blanchfield has more than two decades of experience as an assistant district attorney and assistant public defender with Albany County courts in Albany, New York. PJ Blanchfield supports a number of local organizations, including the Mohawk Hudson Humane Society (MHHS) in Menands, New York.

An animal refuge that seeks to help and home as many animals as possible, MHHS accepts stray cats and dogs, abandoned pets, and animals turned into the shelter having that have been found sick or injured and without proper identification.

The Menands adoption center constitutes one of the shelter’s most important services. By visiting, individuals can review pictures and information on the many domestic animals, including cats, dogs, and rabbits, available for adoption. Online adoption profiles describe basic facts about animals, such as age and weight, while also providing potential adoptive parties with details about temperament and ownership history. Individuals can also expand their search to include animals from nearby MHHS affiliates.

The MHHS website is a highly effective, convenient resource when it comes to identifying and adopting animals in need. However, potential pet owners should discuss the idea with family members and shelter representatives to ensure that the individual is fully prepared for the time and commitment needed to look after a pet.
