Here is Macon!!! We adopted him over the summer. Then, he was Grizzly, a pup from a large litter from Macon, Georgia. He has the sweetest personality. He is both goofy and lovable. Macon spends most of his days trying to get attention from his doggie brothers Memphis and Milo. Thank you Northeast Animal Shelter for bringing Macon to us! Happy Holidays!

Seeking Super Hero Adopters!

Calling All Super Heroes: our homeless cats need YOU! Seeking Wonder Women and Super Men to open their hearts to the elderly, the shy, the feisty and the overlooked!

In conjunction with the MSPCA, Northeast Animal Shelter is launching “Home for the Holidays,” a two-day fee-waived adoptathon to be held Saturday Dec 4 and Sunday Dec 5 for adoptable cats whose age, medical needs, personalities or habits have hampered their ability to find a home of their own.  The adoption fees for these harder to place cats will be waived for the event.

Advance registration for the Fee-Waived Adoptathon event is required. There are limited spaces available each day, so don’t delay – register soon!

Before you register:

  • Review our How to Adopt page so you know what to expect.
  • View our Adoption Search page to see some of the cats who will be available for fee-waived adoptions, which will be designated by a banner on their photo.
  • We routinely plan for same-day adoptions, so be prepared for your new feline friend to leave with you on the same day as your visit.
  • Need supplies such as food, toys, carriers, etc? We carry most of the essentials right here in our adoption center.
  • There is no cost to register for the event. Your advance registration secures you a spot on your selected day, however we cannot guarantee that your preferred animal will be available. We will do our best to help you find the right match!
  • Please be prepared for a wait! We anticipate a lot of interest in the available cats, so there may be a wait period at various points during your visit. Expect to spend from 1-2 hours during your visit.
  • Masks and social distancing are still required to visit NEAS, whether or not you are vaccinated. Thank you for helping to keep everyone safe!

We came into the shelter that morning to meet another puppy, but it just wasn’t a good fit. Just as we were getting ready to leave without a new baby to love, a staff member suggested we meet with Piper who had just become available for adoption over the weekend. It was love at first lick! She took to both my daughters immediately, and she has grown so attached to the 3 of us! We love her more than we ever knew we could love a fur baby. Our hearts and home are so full! She has put on healthy weight and is absolutely thriving. She has come out of her shell and loves playing with the kids so much! She is unbelievably gentle with my toddler. I am forever changed by the love of this pup! and forever grateful to Northeast for completing our family!

It was the last week of March 2020. Businesses are starting to shut down, and I am alone in my house. I grew up with a beautiful black lab mix named Bruno from the North East Animal Shelter. after saying my final good bye to Bruno in February 2020 ( he was 6 years old) I knew I had to give another dog everything they never had. I had been searching shelters long an hard and every dog I thought could be a perfect fit was already spoken for. Discouraged and all, I put in an adoption application to the North East Animal Shelter and said I don’t know which ones I am interested in but I am looking for an energetic dog. A few days later the shelter called be back and said we have a dog named Shaw he’s 7 months old has a lot of energy but we promise he means well. I showed up to the Shelter that afternoon and met this over the top kind of crazy dog. He was running around the room, jumping on the benches, and trying to get on the table with the computer. Shaw lived up to his description! He was over the top energy, and had no idea what personal space was. After playing with him I knew he was perfect! It has been almost a year and a half since I adopted him. He just passed his second birthday! I am so happy to have Shaw in my life! He has plenty of fur friends and has a very busy social calendar. We play non- stop, we go on adventures every weekend together. He has play dates twice a week an goes to “school” 2 days a week while I go into the office. HE is the life of the party and I wouldn’t have it any other way. Thank you North East for paring me with Shaw. If I was going by your website and deciding on what dogs to meet myself I would have never picked Shaw. I am so happy the shelter took the time to get to know me an found the perfect fit for my best friend!

This is Duck, otherwise known as Duck-Duck, Puppy, Goober and countless other nicknames. When we met him, he was a very skinny 53 pounds and despite being in the shelter, he was happy and snuggly. Now, he’s gained 17 pounds and is a very healthy and still happy boy. He loves toys (although he hasn’t figured out that he’s not supposed to rip them apart), sniffing our knees when we come back from an excursion, and long walks/runs. One of his favorite things in the whole world is snacks. He’d do anything for a bacon-flavored treat and he’s successfully mastered “down” and “sit up”. He also adores car rides and when we get his harness out, he starts whole-body wriggling, excited to go on an adventure. We’re still working on how to meet other dogs calmly but he’s getting there. We look forward to many more years with this “snuggle-duck”. Thank you NEAS for introducing us to him.

Adopting Biscuit was the best decision my family and I could’ve made! She has become the cuddliest and sweetest dog ever, we are all so in love with her! She spends her days now talking walks along beach, receiving belly rubs and eating her favorite snacks. She truly is the loveliest lady.

I got Casper a Bichon Frise in 2017, Ray had introduced me to Casper. It was love at 1st site and I ended up adopting him. Casper was 13 years old and his owner had passed away and he was so upset and sad. Casper had an issue with his tale and kept biting it and had to have couple surgeries. They said he would need to wear a cone for the rest of his life, so he would not bite himself. But after seeing a Behavioral doctor and did some therapy and took off his cone and meds for good. He was a new dog. It took a little adjusting to each other at first, but he became my best friend. Then 2019 Ginger 9 year old tea cup Yorkie was brought to the shelter because she was sick and had Mammary tumors. I agreed to foster her, before and after her surgeries. But after taking Ginger in my home. I knew she was my girl and Casper’s bestie! I adopted her and has been best thing. They both are healthy, love their new home and play with each other. They love to snuggle with me too, belly rubs and lots of treats. Thank you, Northeast shelter for giving me my fur babies and giving Casper and Ginger a second chance! Margaret

Our happy boy is living his best life now! We adopted Kenobi back in March and we went through his heartworm treatment which was hard for such a wiggly and energetic boy. Now, he is running around constantly and playing with all of his dog besties! Now after his play time he is in his standard pose attached! We can’t thank NEAS enough for bringing us together with our Good Boy we love him so much!!!!

We brought Zeus home in September, and he instantly made himself right at home. Though he had some behavioral concerns on adoption, his spastic personality is exactly what we were looking for, and is a perfect fit in our home. He and our pup romp together all the time, and in his downtime he likes to nap on expensive clothes, sit by the open window, and watch nature documentaries. His new vet told him he is very handsome and friendly, and we agree! He has been very patient with brushing and detangling while we adjust to grooming a longhair cat. We love you buddy!

My oldest senior T-Bone had passed away a few months ago and I was feeling open to a new senior pup. I saw an alert for a senior pup named Charlie now “Uncle Charlie” on my neighborhood sight. Something about Uncle Charlie’s little gray face told me to check on him. I made an appointment to see him and I knew he was coming home with me. Uncle Charlie was skittish in the shelter but as soon as we walked out on to the grass outside he perked up and started licking my face. He also jumped right in when I opened the truck door. Uncle Charlie immediately started playing with the other members of the house and except for a couple of rookie mistakes has found his place in the pack. The house of Old Dogs is very happy. #seniorrescues #adoptdontshop #northeastanimalshelter #friendswhoarefamily
