Northeast Animal Shelter understands the importance of community.  With our Senior Visitation Program, we visit nursing homes and bring along one of our better-behaved pets.  You can volunteer to help, and you’ll experience the joy of seeing how a four-legged friend can be the bright spot in the day of a senior citizen.  We also visit local schools and welcome groups to our shelter, where we teach students about the humane treatment of pets.  Read more about our Humane Education Program.
