About Us


  • Kitten season will be here any day now. PLEASE Spay/Neuter your pets.


  • WE DO HAVE A TNR PROGRAM (trap/neuter/release) FOR SOUTHWICK. If you have feral (wild) cats in your neighborhood that you would like to be spay/neutered, please call the shelter so we can get to work on trapping them. Our TNR program includes: spay/neuter, testing for aids/leukemia, & rabies shot. ALL cats will be returned to neighborhood. Trapping will be done Monday - Wednesday only.


  • With warm weather on its way please remember that dogs left in hot cars can be in serious trouble in just minutes.
  • Remember the shelter animals that haven't found their forever homes yet. Even one can of food, one toy, one word of mouth that they're here helps each one to maybe have hope of finding their forever home.

Adopting A Friend

With our new shelter someone is there Monday - Friday 8am - 2:00pm. If you would like an evening or weekend visit to the shelter, PLEASE MAKE AN APPOINTMENT at least 24 hours in advance.

Here at the Southwick Animal Shelter, we have a wide variety of cats and dogs. We do from time to time get kittens and puppies. Please visit our pet page to see what we have available at this time. Please keep checking with us. We have some wonderful cats and dogs that need forever homes. We are working hard to get everyone that is in the shelter spayed, neutered and up to date on shots. Keep checking the write ups on our pets to see if they have been adopted. You must be 21 years old to adopt.

ADOPTION FEES We have two prices for our adoptions. Cats: $100.00 includes Leukemia and Feline Aids testing, Dogs: $125.00 Heartworm testing on dogs, Distemper, Rabies, shots, wormed and spay or neutered. No animals leave the shelter without being spay/neutered. All vaccines, testing and spay/neuter are also done. Occasionally we have barn cats. These cats are not pets and are not real friendly.
