We adopted Lucky just about a month ago and boy has our family changed for the better. Lucky did not take long to adjust to our home and become such an important part of the family.

He quickly found his spot on the couch so he can watch the world outside through our living room window. He makes sure he gets in bed with us and likes to sleep under his blanket. He is a great little guy and we love him very much.

He just got a much needed day at the groomer and loves watching the Bruins with us, although he always falls asleep!

Boomer (formerly Tom) let us adopt him on St. Patrick’s Day. He has brought so much love and fun into our home.

We weren’t sure how he was going to get along with our 3 cats but there hasn’t been even one ounce of trouble. It was meant to be!

He loves playing with other dogs, going for walks, and car rides. He has made himself right at home and it makes our hearts full.

Join us on Saturday, August 17th at Northeast Animal Shelter for Clear The Shelter Day — an NBC and Telemundo nationwide adoption event with the goal of, you guessed it, Clearing the Shelters! 

To encourage folks to opt to adopt, adoption fees for pets who have been with us for 14+ days — affectionately known as our Best Friends — will be paid for by a generous grant from the ASPCA and Subaru America! Although everyone at the Shelter has grown to love these cats and dogs and will miss them, it’s time for our pals to make new friends.

Come to the Shelter and be prepared to fall in love!

Even if you’re not looking for a pet right now, stop by for the fun! Between 10am-2pm there will be face painting, children’s crafts, a photo booth, a PopTart pop-up from Brew Box, PoBoys and Pies food truck, puppy yoga*, and a pet food drive for local food pantries. 

 

*Sorry, but the 9am and 10:30am puppy yoga classes are sold out.

Oscar, formerly known as Jupiter, is doing wonderfully! We adopted him about 3 weeks ago. He is 8 months old and a little over 6lbs.

He loves to cuddle and follow us around the house. He fits right in with our family and likes everyone he meets! He loves perching on the window and looking at everything outside.

When we get home from work, he’s waiting for us by the door when we walk in — he’s so cute! We are very happy with Oscar and are excited for the memories we will make with him!

Have Fun in the Sun with Your Dog this Summer

Join Our Dog Training Workshop!

 

 

Summer is here, and that means more outdoor activities.

 

But can your dog join in the fun?

 

Is he reliable on off-leash hikes? Can he focus on you in distracting environments? Can you call him away from that picnic table with tasty BBQ food?

 

Join us on Sunday, August 18th at 9:30 AM OR 10:30 AM at Northeast Animal Shelter for a dog training workshop with positive reinforcement trainers Dan and Yana Carlson. They’ll work on reliable responses, attention games, stays and recalls to help your dog build critical focus skills. So you can feel more confident about including him in all of your activities this summer … and all year-round!

 

Workshop fee: $10 (to be paid at time of attendance)

 

All proceeds will support Northeast Animal Shelter’s “Saving Homeless Pets Across America” program.

 

Space is limited and fills up quickly.

 

To register, email training@neas.org, and let us know if you’d like to attend the 9:30 a.m. or 10:30 a.m. session.

 

*IMPORTANT: Dogs must be at least six months old, current on all vaccinations and should be comfortable in the presence of unfamiliar people and other dogs.

We’ve had Hazel for almost eight years and our love for her only grows! She’s the smartest dog my family has ever owned and she loves us all unconditionally.

I went away to college this year and it only makes the time I get to come home and see her even more precious. Hazel’s cuddles and kisses are always just what I need to recharge before heading back to school.

Thanks NEAS!

We adopted Hex (formally Taylor) on December 26, 2018. We fell in love with her the second she stepped into the meet and greet room.

Bringing her home, she quickly made herself comfortable. She is obsessed with her bed and her stuffed animal friends. She’s the most popular pup in our community, greeting every person and dog she sees and always making friends in the park. She loves snuggling and kissing with her humans.

We couldn’t be more in love with our Hexy Girl!
