Every Year Dorchester Paws takes in nearly 4,000 animals. Each animal is spayed/neutered, microchipped, given vaccinations, basic laboratory testing, and monthly preventives, before being placed up for adoption. Adoption fees help provide medical care, training, food and shelter to the animals. If you have a specific animal in mind please leave their name in the comment box, otherwise we will select a dog or a cat for you. Thank you for saving a life!
