ALL OUR ADOPTED PETS COME WITH A FREE RABIES VACCINATION!
"A word of caution" UNVACCINATED PETS EXPOSED TO RABID ANIMALS ARE PUT TO DEATH BECAUSE OF THE RISK OF INFECTION TO HUMANS AND OTHER ANIMALS! Vaccinate your pet! IT COULD SAVE HIS LIFE (and maybe yours)!
New shelter adoption hours are 3:00-4:00 P.M. Monday - Thursday, *NOTE: holidays excluded, or call for an appointment. Our program "PET SEARCH", has been shown on our local cable TV channel for over 19 years. The show is co-hosted by the South Shore Humane Society and our dog officers. As a direct result of the show and advertisements in our area print media we have been able to place over 1,050 dogs that were featured. Our placement rate currently is better than 99%.
