At Northeast Animal Shelter in Salem, MA, there are 73 dogs and puppies along with 17 cats and kittens waiting for new homes.
Many of the dogs and puppies have come to this no-kill shelter through the rescue program Saving Pets Across America. They have been rescued from kill shelters in Virginia, Indiana, Georgia, Alabama, West Virginia, Tennessee and as far away as Puerto Rico.
On Saturday February 12th, another group of 20 dogs and puppies arrived from Tennessee through the nationally recognized and Animal Planet sponsored program Last Chance Highway.
The recent New England whether has really slowed down adoptions. The dogs at the shelter are safe, but there are so many more who need help. Many people might be waiting for the warmer weather or at least not to hear about another snow storm every week before they consider bringing a new puppy or dog home. But while the cold weather is still the top story in New England, it is the perfect time to warm up with a new furry friend!
