It’s Raining Cats and Dogs!

Dorchester Paws is currently flooding and Staff is actively scooping buckets of water out of our drains to keep the kennels dry. This is the second time, in one month, that we have had to close our gates due to flooding.

Currently we have 258 animals on campus that staff is working keep safe, dry, and warm.

Dorchester Paws is currently operating out of a facility that was built in 1972. In January of 2019 we launched a capital campaign to build a new shelter. The campaign raises awareness for, support, and funds in order to build the new shelter the community both needs and deserves.

With all the standing water, staff is coming up with creative ways to keep our dogs entertained.
