Northeast Animal Shelter is one of New England's largest nonprofit animal shelters. Since opening our doors in 1976, we have placed over 145,000 dogs and cats in permanent homes. Our key programs include: Saving Homeless Pets Across America, which rescues homeless dogs and cats from across the US and transports them to the safety of our Shelter; our Foster Care Program, which provides a temporary home for pets that need "extra care" before being adopted; our Special Needs Fund, which provides medical and behavioral care to special pets; and our Community Pet Food Bank, which provides donated food to people in our community who need help feeding their pets.
