A volunteer writes: Kid-friendly, dog-friendly, gentle, playful, well trained and easy-going–this beautiful boy truly is the creme de la creme of dogs! Whether sitting up front wagging a happy tail for passing adopters or play-bowing in group to solicit the other pups, sweet Creme is the life of any party and wherever he goes, joy and laughter follow. He’s a genuine family dog who lived in relaxed harmony with two young kids aged 7 and 9 and his former owner left nothing but glowing comments about his playful, affectionate ways. Described as very loving, he enjoys being snuggled and kissed and gives back little kisses of his own and when people were at home he always liked to follow them around. Creme’s favorite game is tug but he’s happy to share and never ‘too much’ when pulling and he loves playing with all kinds of toys from stuffed to squeaky and even Frisbees! We’re told he’s crate trained and does well for up to 8 hours but always prefers to be socializing with his friends and if left alone in the yard he’s been known to make a break for the neighbors place so sturdy fences are a must in his new home. Creme has the high spirits you’d expect from any young guy but the kind of good manners and training that make him a joy to spend time with and he already knows commands for come, sit, stay and down and will follow them wonderfully, especially if there’s a treat waiting when he’s done. Energetic but not hyper and very eager to meet new friends of both the two and four-legged variety, Creme would fit into almost any social situation with ease and while he likes to keep the squirrels and pigeons on their toes, a walk through the park is a delight from both ends of the leash. According to his notes it seems the only thing that doesn’t bring a smile to Creme’s handsome face is bath time but hey, what kid actually wants to take a bath? He’s full of love, he’s aced his behavior assessment and now he’s ready to graduate from the Care Center to a brand new forever family so come meet your dream (or should that be dreme?) dog today, Creme will be waiting!

About Odies Place

About Our Shelter...

Odie’s Place Animal Shelter has been created to honor Otis, a truly great shelter dog that passed away in January. We are building an amazing sanctuary for homeless animals and give them the second chance that they deserve.

Have you ever thought about where stray dogs and cats go when they are caught? Have you ever considered the fates of runaways, or abandoned pets, if they are lucky enough for someone with a good heart to find them? The South Coast has thousands of stray dogs and cats roaming the streets, and many of them eventually find their way to shelters.

My dog Otis was one such animal. We found him at a shelter, and took him home. And in our home he was a friend, a confidante, and a part of the family. He passed away in January, and while he is gone his memory is not. The fact that Otis was able to be a part of our lives came down to luck as much as anything else. Nearly all of the shelters in our area have a kill policy; animals who are perfectly adoptable may end up being euthanized because they are old, or not socialized well, or have simply spent too long in an overcrowded shelter.

But we want to ensure that Otis’s name, and the joy he brought to us, lives on. So we are establishing Odie’s Place, a no-kill shelter right here in New Bedford. We will do whatever it takes to make sure that every animal that comes in through our front doors leaves, one day, with its forever family.


Southcoast Massachusetts has thousands of animals enter shelters every month, and the majority of those shelters have kill policies. The simple tragic fact is that shelters are overcrowded, and perfectly healthy and well-behaved animals are being killed simply to make room for the incoming onslaught.

Otis made life so much better for us, and we’re on a mission to give that same opportunity to others! Our sanctuary will have a no-kill policy, and we will provide temporary shelter until each stray or abandoned animal is adopted into its forever-family. No one will be killed off to make room!
