Story
Say hello to Oliver! This lovely guy is a 9 year old neutered male English bulldog. Oliver has been very pleasant company here at the shelter, he is adored by volunteers & staff alike! He is mild mannered, a gentle leash walker, plays nicely with his toys, and enjoys cuddle sessions. His favorite toys are stuffies with squeakers, he tosses them in the air to himself and chases them all around, he's too cute! He always gets good report cards saying he was sweet, gentle, and an absolute love when out with our volunteers and staff.Oliver would be best living with teens+ as he does not appreciate forced close handling very much. His previous owner said he used to live with a cat and they coexisted just fine, so he may be able to live with a feline friend or two. He has been friendly in passing with our other dogs, making us believe he may be able to live with another dog as well. Oliver needs to receive orthopedic surgery which the shelter will provide, and his adoptive family will need to be able and willing to help him through the recovery process as he gets back on his feet. Please speak with staff for more details. Has this sweet, smushy face wiggled its way into your heart? Follow the steps below to come meet Oliver!Our shelter is open every day from 12-4, closed on Mondays. If you are interested in this pet, please call us at 978-452-7781, email info@lowellhumanesociety.org, or stop by the shelter to request an adoption application.

Story
’ , !  - , . Bo Peep is hands down one of the happiest puppies and has the best temperament which is AMAZING considering how she was found––skinny, covered in red ant bites, with a broken tail, and unsure where she was when she landed in a high kill shelter in LA after being found as stray, but assumably dumped. original plea––> https://tinyurl.com/SavingBoPeep Though she is blind + hearing impaired (hears a little!), she enjoys all of the same things that any puppy would. She is fostered in Hopkinson MA with adult humans and FOUR other pups and she enjoys playing with them all. Says her foster mum––“In the short amount of time we’ve had Bo Peep, this “I can do anything“ puppy loves our resident dogs and her foster siblings as well. BO PEEP loves meeting new people and greets EVERYONE with her adorable little tail and wiggle butt. We are all so in love with her. Peep sleeps in her crate all night and will go in on her own to nap. She is making good progress with house training and keeps her crate clean and dry. She loves running with the big dogs and wrestling with them too. She also LOVE LOVE LOVES people. This puppy is so full of life and love. Peep spends her days playing outside with our dogs, hanging out on the deck playing with toys, and meeting up with the neighborhood kids for more fun and adventures. In the evenings she can be found snuggled up on the couch with her foster Dad and Bo (her 98 pound Coonhound foster brother) watching TV and Peep is definitely a Bruins fan!” BO-PEEP walks well on a leash and for being sight-impaired and with some hearing deficits too, Bo Peep has proven herself a smartypants regardless. Her foster mum also reports—“’ , . 3 .

Story
Meet happy, playful and goofy Marshmallow! This 46 lb. bulldog boy is super affectionate, loves to meet people, play with toys and go on adventures. Marshmallow has been down a rough road but has kept up an amazing, silly personality. Marshmallow's owner was unable to care for him, and he arrived at WARL with a significant skin infection that was painful and required lots of veterinary care, sutures, and daily treatments. It was a great day for staff and volunteers when his fur started growing back and he was clearly recovering. Words can't really describe how exceptional his resilient and kind heart shines through. Marshmallow was a gem throughout his skin care routine, and actually looked forward to being cleaned daily with medical wipes, because he knew there were some nice treats waiting for him after each step. Marshmallow is admittedly working on a humping issue, so he may be able to live with another dog, but they would have to meet first as he comes on a bit strong! Same with kids, he needs just the right energy mix. An important thing to know about this pup is that he will require several veterinary visits per year to keep current on his prescribed allergy medication. English Bulldogs have complex medical needs, and his new home has to be able to ensure that he will be able to get the continued care that he needs. That is super important for him to continue, and his new home must be able to support him with this care. Marshmallow will pay it back with lots of affection, and plenty of happy snorting bulldog noises! If you think Marshmallow would be a good fit for your home, please head to our actual website worcesterarl.org and click on his picture to fill out the Dog Adoption Inquiry Form listed below to request a meet with him. That is the first step! All adoptions are by appointment, thank you.

Story
This handsome boys name is Astro. He’s a 6 year old English Bulldog who’s very lovable, loves his blueberries, and loves to be lazy. Unfortunately, Astro is in need of a new home. He does not get along with other dogs, and it is assumed he won’t get along with cats, although he’s never met one. Astro prefers to be your one and only, and he does better with kids that are 12+ due to his excitement around them.

Adoptable in: MA, RI, NH, CT, and VTGood with dogs: YesGood with cats: YesGood with kids: YesCrate trained: YesHouse Trained: YesVixen is an intelligent, sweet, and happy go lucky girl. She is hoping for a forever family who loves adventure just as much as they love to nap. She is a medium energy dog who enjoys going on walks and hikes followed by snuggling up with her family on the couch. Vixen plays well with dogs of all shapes, sizes and ages, she is still young and learning to take cues from other dogs. She would make a great doggy daycare candidate. With her playful and loving nature Vixen would do well in a home with children. She is initially curious about cats, but quickly ignores them.Vixen is eager to please and very food motivated. She has already mastered crate and house training. She sleeps in her crate overnight and during the work day when her humans are out without a peep. She is working on her leash walking skills. She likes to follow her nose, but redirects well and will look to you for reassurance as she navigates her new environment. With time, patience and consistency she will continue to thrive. Vixen would love a family who will teach her new tricks. Is Vixen your next adventure buddy?Please Note: All dogs currently available for adoption are posted on our website.

Adoptable in: MA, RI, NH, CT, and VTGood with dogs: YesGood with cats: YesGood with kids: YesCrate trained: Yes (Pup settles quickly and quietly, accident free when crated)House Trained: Yes (No accidents in weeks or ever)A happy little potato, Swisher is abounding with love for everyone she meets - kids, cats, dogs, and adults!The optimal mix of calm and energy, Swisher should thrive in any home. Whether she is in the house entertaining herself with a toy, chewing on a stick outside, or playing chase in the yard with other pups, she is super content and carefree. She also loves playing fetch or chase with kids. Her only interaction with a cat resulted in her being hissed at, and she calmly walked away.Swisher is excellent in the crate and goes in willingly. This could be attributed to her knowing that treats will be forthcoming, but she settles in happily nonetheless. She will alert by pacing when she needs to go outside. Her leash training is still a work in progress as she is prone to pulling, especially if she sees other dogs she wants to meet. She will also need work on learning not to jump up excitedly.Swisher will be a great addition to any home and cannot wait to meet her forever family!Please Note: All dogs currently available for adoption are posted on our website.
