Taunton Animal Shelter --Taunton, MA
A heart-warming statement from the Taunton Shelter: "The Taunton Shelter is a very large facility and fortunately can accommodate over 40dogs. We do not euthanize older dogs, only if dying or very ill. Our success rate is great placing these pooches. They do deserve a second chance. We think many of them go unclaimed because owners assume they've gone off to die. If the dogs are healthy, we spay or neuter them before putting them up for adoption, especially the purebreds. We have a special fondness in our hearts for the seniors." Telephone: 508-822-1463. Address: 821 West Water St., Taunton, MA 02780

Thomas J. O'Connor Shelter -- Chicopee, MA
Telephone: (413) 781-1485

A Place for Us -- South Egremont, MA
This facility is actually a loving home environment for dogs (usually one, no more than three at a time) who have come from local shelters and who need to find permanent homes. Before arriving, dogs are spayed or neutered, then, after about two weeks of adjusting to home life, are offering for adoption. By that time, the dogs' personalities and habits are known, and a good match can be made between dog and adopter.

Northeast Animal Shelter -- Salem, MA
This organization has never practiced euthanasia and has placed more than 73,000 animals since its founding in 1976. They are at 204 Highland Avenue, Salem, MA 01970. Telephone: (978) 745-9888.

PoundHounds Inc. -- Hopkinton, MA
PoundHounds is an all-breed volunteer rescue organization that facilitate the placement of abandoned or surrendered dogs currently in non-profit shelters or town-run pounds in Massachusetts. They contact, or are contacted, by pounds and shelters about dogs that need to be placed. Because many of these pounds have no budget or charter to work with dogs that are sick, injured, or have behavior problems, they will assume this responsibility and provide rehabilitative care, including medical treatment, boarding, or training, depending on the dog's requirements. They then try to place the dog through advertising, referrals, and participation in pet adoption events. Their goal is to find the best homes for the dogs in their care. PoundHounds Adoption Hotline: 508-435-5029. E-mail: info@poundhounds.org

Valley Dog Rescue E-mail List and Website -- a forum for rescuers in New England, Eastern NY, NJ and the rest of the Northeast

The Quincy Animal Shelter, Quincy, MA is an all volunteer-run, non-profit organization taking care of the homeless cats and dogs of the city of Quincy, MA.

To find out more, visit the website or contact Jean Ellard via phone, 617-376-1349 or e-mail, jean.ellard@teradyne.com
