Their Work

Northeast Animal Shelter aims to help animals and people by providing humane care and resources for homeless and owned pets in need. Established in 1976, Northeast Animal Shelter is one of New England’s largest animal adoption centers.

Each year, the shelter’s animal relocation program transports thousands of cats and dogs from overpopulated animal shelters across the country to Massachusetts, where each animal receives medical care, enrichment, and behavior training prior to adoption. In 2021, Northeast Animal Shelter became affiliated with MSPCA-Angell, creating the opportunity to connect thousands of more pets with adopters than either organization could accomplish on their own. Northeast Animal Shelter also promotes compassion for all animals through their community programs and partnerships, which focus on strengthening the human-animal bond to keep people and pets together.

SPCA International is proud to support Northeast Animal Shelter’s animal relocation program and its larger mission to provide the best outcomes for all animals during the wake of Hurricane Ida.
