Westfield Animal Shelter is a municipal animal shelter. The animals at the shelter are generally animals picked up as strays and all the animals come from the towns animal control covers (Westfield, Easthampton, and Southampton). Once an animal's stray hold is up, they are behaviorally evaluated for adoption.
If you have lost a pet, please call the animal control office as soon as possible at 413.564.3129 . Owners will be responsible to pay fines/fees associated with the the impoundment of their animal and/or failure to follow animal ordinances and laws.
Animals available for adoption can change daily. Shelter staff will keep this list as updated as possible.
Adoption fees are $165 for dogs, $125 for cats, and $175 for kittens. These fees are subject to change.
All cats and dogs are spayed or neutered, up to date on their vaccinations, blood tested, and microchipped before they are adopted.
Any dog being adopted over the age of 6 months must also obtain a dog license in the town they will be living in.
The shelter generally does not do same day adoptions. Animal meet and greets are by appointment only. If you are interested in a pet, please fill out the online adoption application. The adoption counselor will go over the application. This can take several days, as the adoption counselor works part-time. Once an application is approved, the adoption counselor schedules a time to meet adoptable animals at the shelter.
