Taunton Animal Shelter consistently has an average of 20 or more dogs and cats of all ages, breeds and colors! If we do not currently have what you are looking for, please leave your name and number (and an application) for future reference. We may also know of a shelter who may have what you are looking for. The Adoption Fee covers the cost of the spay/neuter and required vaccinations.

CHARLIE is a male Mastiff/Am Staff mix, about 3 years old. He is a big, strong and handsome guy, with the unusual combination of one blue eye and one brown eye. He is full of energy from his head to his toes and would be best suited for an active person/family who will include him in lots of activities, walks/runs, and play time. He loves to "socialize" with the volunteers in the play yard and go for long walks. Charlie absolutely LOVES the water and will jump in the kiddie pool, splash all around, lay in it and just look up at us with those beautiful eyes of his and "smile" from ear to ear. :) He could benefit from obedience training and the use of a martingale collar and easy-walk harness when walking him - he is very strong and has a tendency to pull when walking, if not on a harness. Our trainer recently spent some time with Charlie, said he was a great boy and recommended continued obedience training. She has offered (1) free 1 hr consult and (1) free 1 hr training session to the family/person who adopts him. Charlie would prefer to be your one and only pet. He promises to give you enough love and affection for two and fill your life with lots of laughter and companionship. A fenced yard would be ideal - he would love a yard to run and play in. We were told that Charlie would do well with children, however, he would be too active for toddlers. It is recommended that children be over 12.
Charlie is hoping he will get to spend the rest of his summer in a new home with a new family. Enjoying lots of outdoor activities - long walks, hikes, swimming, running along a beach, cookouts, and relaxing in the warm sunshine with his new "best friend"

I was one of 16 cats and kittens left recently by the side of the road in the woods near the shelter. I am shy at first, but am doing better with each day. Being in a dark box, taped shut and left not knowing where I was, is an experience I cannot tell you about with words. I am petite with kind and gentle green eyes. I love attention, yet unsure how to ask for it. Once you begin to talk to me, I love the attention and will roll with delight. Please come to meet me. I am not sure how to ask you to take me home, but I will try my best.
