Join Northeast Animal Shelter on Sunday June 30th at Cinema Salem from 10am-12pm for a free screening of The Champions, a documentary film by Darcy Dennett. The Champions is an inspirational story about the pit bulls rescued from the fighting ring of former Atlanta Falcon’s star quarterback Michael Vick, and those who risked it all to save them. The uplifting documentary takes us on a journey about much more than just dogs — about prejudice, being misunderstood, the power of resilience, and the significance of the relationship we as humans have with animals. The Champions is a film that inspires compassion and compels social change, and is approved for all age groups. Cinema Salem is located at 1 East India Square Mall.
Following the screening there will be a Q+A lead by Northeast Animal Shelter’s Director of Behavior and the Founder of Handsome Dan’s Rescue.
Handsome Dan’s Rescue — named after Dan, one of the 22 dogs who came to Best Friends Animal Society from Michael Vick’s estate after he was arrested and charged in association with the operation of a dog fighting ring — helps with placement, care and the overall wellbeing of dogs in local shelters, rescues, and other facilities throughout the state of Rhode Island.
Free admission — suggested donation of $10 appreciated. Seating it limited and offered on a first come, first served basis.
Does your dog know basic commands like “sit” and “down” but suddenly “forget” all of it when you’re in exciting environments?
Join our three-week intermediate manners mini-series Oct. 9, 16 and 23 from 10 a.m. – 11 a.m. at Northeast Animal Shelter.
In these sessions, positive reinforcement trainers Dan and Yana Carlson will build on basic behaviors your dog already knows, adding more movement with loose leash walking, recalls and “stay” with distance and duration. You will also work on behaviors like “leave it,” appropriate greetings and more, adding more difficulty using distractions and duration.
Fee for three-session series: $50 (to be paid at first class)
All proceeds will support Northeast Animal Shelter’s “Saving Homeless Pets Across America” program.
Space is limited and fills up quickly.

We adopted Luna (previously Nosey) about 5 months ago! I had been begging my mom for a kitten for so long. We were running errands and we decided just to stop and look at some kitties.
We saw Luna and she blinked slowly three times at us and then started to get up and play. We held her and played with her and we knew she was the perfect fit!
She gets along really well with our 8 year old dog and she loves to go crazy and explore the house at night. Mostly, she stays in my room. My dad calls it her “home base”.
Join us for our Annual Spooktacular Open House on October 19th @ Northeast Animal Shelter!

Minnie has been with us for almost 3 weeks and she is an absolute delight.
To our surprise, she sleeps through the night! She is very affectionate and loves giving kisses.
Her favorite word is “walk” and she can’t wait to get her leash on and go on an adventure! Minnie loves playing ball and chasing squirrels and chipmunks in our back yard. My husband keeps saying I picked a winner. I totally agree, but Minnie claims she picked us.
We are working with a trainer and she is a fast learner except when she takes us for a walk while trying to chase birds and squirrels on the way! Although we have only had her for a short time, we cannot imagine life without our little cutie.
