Thank you For opening your heart and home to a shelter/stray dog

About Our Shelter:

Fitchburg Animal Control holds all stray dogs for 10 days. Then they are put up for adoption. We try very hard NOT to euthanize any dogs, but unfortunately there are times when there is an aggressive dog or a very unhealthy dog that we just can't help.

Come Meet our Pets:

All of the dogs up for adoption stay in a wonderful home based private boarding kennel and can be seen by APPOINTMENT ONLY!

Our Adoption Process:

An Adoption Application is a MUST. An Application MUST FIRST be filled out and APPROVED before any appointment can be set up. EMAIL Fitchburg Animal Control for an Application.

Please know that all of our dogs go into homes and are part of the family. We do not adopt out if they are going to be kept outside in pens or tied to trees.

Our Adopted Pets:

We have helped lots of pets connect with loving and caring owners. Check out our adopted pets list!

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.
