We got Rocky (formerly Rueben) on April 10, 2017. He is absolutely loving the beach, hiking, fishing, swimming, and lounging in the sun. He gets along with all dogs and humans, and he has to say hello to everyone. He’s the talk of the town in Salem! We are so in love with our little man. Thank you Northeast Animal Shelter! We love our Little Rock!

Anyone looking to adopt a pet should visit Salem's Northeast Animal Shelter, a non-profit agency that does not euthanize animals. The shelter, which opened its new facility in 2008, takes in adoptable dogs and cats surrendered by owners who can no longer care for them, as well as strays found by local officials or rescue groups. In addition, the shelter transports from other states hundreds of homeless dogs that would otherwise be euthanized due to overpopulation. Northeast also rescues satos, mixed breed dogs found wandering the streets of Puerto Rico. Dog and cat adoption fees include spaying/neutering whenever possible. The shelter also participates in community outreach through its Humane Education and Senior Visitation programs.We contacted rescue groups and animal shelters from California to Florida who needed help, and arranged to transport pets to the safety of our Shelter in Salem, MA. The effort was immediately successful, and is now a large part of our adoption program.The Northeast Animal Shelter in Salem, MA received a donation from a national pet food company to renovate its’ three Cat Play Rooms. RFA was retained as the Architect to design these unusual and unique playrooms. The design consists of an assortment of bridges, terraces, spiral stairs, straight stairs, ramps, balconies and scratching posts in order to create a fun-filled experience for the feline members of the shelter community. In addition there are colorful wall boxes and floor boxes for the cats to rest in and/or find solitude in.
