Pets at Our Shelter:

Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:

We serve the City of Fitchburg by taking in stray, abused and owner surrendered animals. All of our adoptable animals are vet checked: Spay, Neuter, Heartworm tested, Rabies vaccination, distemper-Parvo vaccination, d worming, Micro chip and Flea & Tick prevention. No one is euthanized for breed, space and or time!

About Our Shelter:

Hi, I am Amy the Shelter Manager. The only part time paid employee at the shelter. I am fully supported by ACE-Central Ma, a 501c3 organization that focuses on Animal Care & Education. All the volunteers that come to socialize, train, clean, love, photograph and network the animals are from ACE. The shelter is on nearly 6 acres in a country setting. Each day the dogs get a long off leash run in the woods, climbing stone walls and exploring for adventure. We end each session with time in our Quiet Room which is set up like a home den. This is where we work on house manners and some snuggle time on a love seat! We all love these animals, treat them as if they were our own!

Our Adoption Process:

Our adoption process is detailed however swift! The fee is $250.00 for dogs and up to $150.00 for other animals. Must be 18 yrs old or older to adopt. If you rent must have landlord written permission verified before adopting. All current pets must be Spayed, Neutered, Up to Date on vaccinations and Licensed if required in your home town

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.
