Strives to unite thousands of rescued animals with the perfect adoptive families. Also, provides safe shelter, food, healthcare, and low cost spaying or neutering without destroying any rescued animal in their care.
Caring for all the animals at NEAS is very rewarding, but it is also a lot of work. You must be 18 or over to volunteer at NEAS. The Northeast Animal Shelter, established in 1976, is one of New England's largest nonprofit shelters that does not destroy any of the pets entrusted to its care. We have placed thousands of dogs and cats since we opened our doors. We are located just a half hour north of Boston and easily accessible to all of New England. Being open 7 days a week makes the adoption of a pet convenient for the general public and enables us to place all our homeless dogs and cats. As soon as a dog or cat arrives at our facility, our staff begins searching for the perfect match -- a family who is just right and will give the pet a wonderful home. While waiting for a forever home, our dogs and cats receive the best of care.
