About Us

Northeast Animal Shelter, established in 1976, is one of New England’s largest non-profit, no-kill animal shelters.

The Shelter is located a half hour north of Boston and is easily accessible from all of New England. Being open 7 days a week makes the adoption of a pet convenient for the general public and enables us to place all our homeless dogs and cats.

As soon as a dog or cat arrives at our facility, our staff begins searching for the right match — a family or individual who will give the pet a wonderful home. While waiting for a forever home, our dogs and cats receive the best of care.

Since each animal’s needs are unique, this may include medical care, obedience training, a visit with a groomer, or a special diet. Our pets are inoculated, wormed, and spayed or neutered at the appropriate age.
