About Our Shelter:

We are a municipal animal shelter. We take in stray dogs and sick or injurred cats. Our shelter is unique to most because it has a room used to house our cats in an open colony, once seen by the vet, they are not housed in cages! Our staff is limited, but our volunteers are in abundance. We have a new volunteer group up at the shelter called

. Their main goal is to raise the monies necessary to build a new state of the art animal shelter for the Town of Bristol. Funding is also used in emergency veterinary care. Visit their website for further information and to learn how you can help them reach their goal.

Why should you adopt?

Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog, adopting a cat, adopting a kitten or adopting a puppy versus getting dogs for sale, cats for sale, puppies for sale or kittens for sale from a dog breeder or a cat breeder? When someone is breeding puppies or breeding kittens, they are creating new dogs and cats who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog, cat, puppy or kitten and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale or buy a cat for sale from a puppy breeder or a kitten breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs and cats who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder or buying a cat or kitten for sale from a cat breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog, adopt a cat, adopt a puppy or adopt a kitten at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
