We Will Remain Open by Appointment Only

Dorchester Paws has had to cut back staff hours due to a 20% decrease in donations, fundraising events, and shelter income. Despite these hardships, the shelter will remain open. We will operate by appointment only. We are here for our community through adoptions, owner reclaims, stray intake, and to hand out pet food to those in need.

Dorchester Paws has seen a decrease in adoptions. Can you make room for one more? Through April 15th we are running a $25 adoption special, thanks to the Bissell Pet Foundation.

Join us on Facebook as we offer virtual meet and greets, Bringing adoptable animals right to your phone from the comfort of your own home.

Dorchester Paws’ work is essential. Every day they feed the hungry, shelter the homeless, and protect the abused.

To schedule an appointment you can email adopt@dorchesterpaws.org or call 843-871-3820!
