I would do best in a quiet home with no other animals!

Please use our automated phone system to answer your questions 978-422-8585 as staff is extremely limited and we don't always have time to answer the phones OR Email us at:staff@sterlingshelter.org

 All of our adoptable animals’ behavioral and medical health has been carefully screened by our experienced vet team as well as our employees and with input from our volunteers who all work daily hands on with our animals. Our investment in our animals includes learning as much about their personalities so that we can help you find the perfect match for your home and lifestyle.

 

Please check our website for updates- our pet profiles are updated multiple times daily. If the pet is NO LONGER on our site he/she has been adopted. Make sure you click on each pets' photo to confirm when they are available or to see if our shelter is running any ADOPTION SPECIALS OR DISCOUNTS. Our shelter periodically runs adoption specials to promote adoptions during certain times of the year or as a way to promote national shelter adoption events!

 

Please noteWe DO NOT hold, take deposits or reserve animals for ANY reason and do NOT allow gift or surprise adoptions –Our shelter is happy to have an open adoption philosophy - where we work with our potential adopters to make the adoption process pleasant & successful.  We do not have invasive adoption requirements - such as home inspections, reference & background checks,  take deposits, or promise to contact you AFTER you've met & bonded with a pet (our pets are ready to go home same day as long as their medical care is complete) as many shelters/rescues do.  We believe our adopters have the best intentions when adopting a pet from our shelter. So, if you feel you will be a good home to an animal & that the animal will be valued by you & your family, then we want you to adopt from us!

 

WE DO RESPECTFULLY REQUIRE potential adopters:

 

  • To have your entire family present when adopting - especially any/all children in the home.
  • If you have another dog/s you bring them as well - We have several areas for meet/greet introductions.
  • Adopters be 21+ years of age & provide proof of home ownership or a rental agreement stating pets are allowed.

 

PLEASE UNDERSTAND THIS IS FOR THE SAFETY OF YOUR FAMILY, YOUR CHILDREN, YOUR PET/S & OUR PETS

 

Please note - our staff have been through countless training & behavior courses as well as temperament testing classes. We may pick up on behaviors upon introduction that indicate a specific pet/s in our shelter may not be a good fit for your family &/or resident dog/s. It is NOT uncommon to have potential adopters visit the shelter on more than one occasion before finding the perfect match.  We DO receive puppies/dogs on a weekly basis...so if you don't find a match your 1st visit - don't be discouraged - we're sure you'll find that ideal match another time!  So PLEASE RESPECT our staff & the difficult job we have - to help YOUR FAMILY make the best match possible & do what is in the BEST interest of OUR shelters' animals & your family/pets as well including following our shelters protocols set forth by our Board of Directors. WE SINCERELY FEEL- There is nothing more disappointing to YOUR FAMILY, to OUR STAFF & VOLUNTEERS & to the ANIMALS if an adoption does NOT work out & the pet is returned.

Don't miss the 2013 Whisker Walk - 6th Annual on Sunday June 9th 2013 www.whiskerwalk.org for more information!

What's a Whisker Walk you Ask?
Well its a lot of things ... but mostly its a FREE, fun day for families and their dogs PLUS a dog walk-a-thon fundraiser to benefit animal shelters and rescue groups throughout New England.

Held at the Lancaster Fairground (Home of the Bolton Fair) there are 50+ acres for Pet owners and animal lovers to walk, visit vendors, see, do and buy PLUS they can lend a paw for the animals shelters and pet rescues they love and support!

Come see almost 100 booths filled with exhibits, demonstrations, educational programs, special attractions, product giveaways, entertainment, auctions/raffles, food, fun and things for adults and kids to see, do and buy – both human and pet related!

Check back often to see participants, events and attractions!

Top off your exciting day and join us for the Walk - a leisurely (almost) ONE mile stroll on shaded, flat, grassy trails with your well behaved dog (sorry other pets must stay home)
