Adopting a pet from the shelter

Each animal received at the shelter receives all necessary shots and is spayed or neutered. Each animal is also assessed individually for personality and social behavior before being readied for adoption.

All new owners are interviewed as to the type of home and family that will be adopting, including the household’s history and experience with pets. Our goal is to provide a loving home by carefully matching pet and new pet owner. Call 508-627-8662 or visit the shelter for more information on adopting a new pet.
