Thank you to everyone who has and continues to support, donate, and adopt dogs and cats from our shelter. Your support helps us continue to do the important work of caring for and finding families for displaced pets.
Policies and procedures:
1. Adoptable dogs and cats are posted on our website and Facebook page. If you are a Massachusetts resident interested in adopting a particular pet or submitting a general request the first step is to complete an online ADOPTION application (click HERE). As you can imagine we receive many applications and inquiries. If you do not hear from us it simply means either the dog or cat has been adopted, we received a high volume of applications for that animal, or have not received the right pet for you. The application process is at no charge to you and only needs to be completed once. Applications will be kept on file.
2. All visits are by appointment only.
3. Applications will be reviewed as received. If in our opinion a pet is a good candidate for you, an adoption counselor will contact you by email to schedule a Zoom chat. If all are in agreement the pet has the potential to be a good match, an introduction will be scheduled.
4. If you have any questions, concerns, or need additional information on adopting or surrendering a pet we can be reached by email at and all emails will receive a response. We can also be reached by messenger on Facebook or by telephone at 978 443-6990. If we do not answer please leave a voicemail and your call will be returned ASAP.
