Northeast Animal Shelter is one of New England's largest no-kill animal shelters. Since opening our doors in 1976, we have placed over 140,000 dogs and cats in permanent homes. Our key programs include: Saving Homeless Pets Across America, which rescues abandoned and homeless dogs and cats from across the U.S.; Humane Education Program, which teaches schoolchildren how to be responsible and loving pet owners; Foster Care Program, which provides a temporary home for pets that need a little "extra care" before being adopted; and the Senior Visitation Program, which welcomes visitors from senior centers and nursing homes to our Shelter.
