Rescue Expert Blog

The #RescueMyShelter campaign was designed to provide shelters across the United States with Rescue Veterinary Disinfectants®, to assist staff and volunteers in creating a temporary home for animals that is free of harmful pathogens. We did not expect to receive the overwhelming number of stories and images from volunteers, pet owners, and shelters that we have! The care that animal shelters are providing in communities and cities the county is truly something to celebrate. That is why we have chosen Northeast Animal Shelter as the most recent winner of our #RescueMyShelter kit.

Northeast Animal Shelter, located in Salem, Massachusetts, opened its doors in 1979 and has been serving the area ever since. Their dedicated Volunteer Receptionists, Adoption Counsellors, Kennel Staff, Medical Team and volunteers who serve in others areas of the shelter, not only work to provide care and treatment to animals in the New England area but throughout the United States as well. They even welcome dogs from Puerto Rico who require love and attention.

Northeast Animal Shelter is one if not the largest no kill shelter in the Northeast. They do amazing work. They provide excellent care until they are able to find a forever home. They have a couple hundred adoptions a month. I’m a volunteer so I know first-hand how vital disinfectant is to their daily needs. It is necessary to keep the kennels clean, the animals and employees healthy and happy.- Krislynn

Their love and care for animals does not stop there! Education is key to ensuring that families can care for their pets, which is why they have established several programs that provide just that. They also offer spaying and neutering procedures at a reduced cost and work with foster parents to give animals a little extra loving care and attention if needed. To bring even more joy to people’s lives, Northeast Animal Shelter organizes, “monthly visits to local nursing homes, assisted living communities, and special needs facilities.” You can even host a birthday party at the shelter and celebrate your special day with the animals.

Northeast Animal a shelter is a kind, loving no-kill shelter. They also donate their time to kids to learn about shelters and animals. Myself and other family members have found our fur babies here. They deserve all the help they can get to keep costs low and remain part of the community. Thank you.- Tara
