For more than 30 years, the Northeast Animal Shelter has helped to match more than 100,000 dogs and cats with stable, loving forever homes. The shelter does not euthanize animals under any circumstances and facilitates adoption with services such as obedience training, grooming, restorative health care, inoculation, and spaying or neutering. In addition to taking in local animals, Northeast Animal Shelter also absorbs highly adoptable pets from overcrowded shelters in other areas including Alabama, Georgia, Tennessee, California, and Puerto Rico. By transporting animals from shelters with high rates of euthanasia, the shelter helps to reduce the strain on resources in overwhelmed facilities and ensures the rescued pets will find homes without being euthanized. Though rates vary depending on the animal and location, it costs Northeast Animal Shelter an average of $150 to transport one dog out of an overcrowded environment and into its own shelter in Salem.
