Calling all dog adopters: our homeless dogs need YOU!

Northeast Animal Shelter and the MSPCA are launching “Home for the Holidays,” a month-long adoptathon for all adult dogs over the age of 1 year old.  The adoption fees for all dogs one year and older is reduced to $100, thanks to the generosity of donors who have subsidized the adoption fees.

Please note – Dogs available at the MSPCA at Nevins Farm and Northeast Animal Shelter will be available by appointment as well as during the open adoption hours listed on the website. Boston and Cape Adoption Centers are currently operating on an appointment basis only.

Things to consider:

  • Review our How to Adopt page so you know what to expect.
  • View our Adoption Search page to see some of the dogs who will be available for reduced-fee adoptions – they’ll all be marked with a star!
  • Dog adoptions sometimes happen the day you come in and sometimes require several visits to ensure a good match. Please be ready to adopt when you make an appointment or ready to come back for a second visit if necessary.
  • Need supplies such as food, toys, crates, etc? We carry most of the essentials right here in our adoption center.
