The Friends of the Taunton Animal Care Facility sincerely thank our financial and Wish List supporters and those who Liked and Shared our FaceBook page of Taunton Animal Shelter cats and dogs. With your support, Friends was able to fund medical procedures, diagnositc testing, medications and special food for numerous shelter animals. These animals received the gift of a caring, loving home because you gave them the opportunity to be adopted!
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.
TYSON is a male Am Staff, about 5 years old. He is a handsome and sweet boy who likes everyone and is also good with most other dogs. He does have a tendency to chase cats, and therefore, would be best in a home with no cats. He is as beautiful inside, as he is outside! He would be a welcome addition to any family. Tyson would love a fenced yard and an active person/family who would include him in lots of activities, walks and play time. He loves snuggling and gives the best "doggie kisses"! :) He walks well on the leash with the use of a martingale collar and easy-walk harness. One of Tyson's favorite treats is a kong filled with peanut butter, and he enjoys playing with tennis balls in the play yard! If you are looking for a fun new "best friend" to make your life complete and bring lots of love and companionship to your life, come meet Tyson! You are sure to fall in love.
HAPPY THANKSGIVING from Tyson and all his friends at the Taunton Shelter! Tyson is hoping he will soon be in a new home for the holidays and be able to share a special Thanksgiving dinner with a new family.
"Of all the things we have to be thankful for, some of the dearest are the children and animals in our lives. For there is no greater blessing than to be able to share our hearts and homes with those we love. In return, they bring us joy, they teach us to wonder anew at life, and they enrich each day through the wonderful bond we share." (American Humane Association)
I wear my heart on my nose! And have a half black/white chin! How unique am I? My owner could no longer care for me, the shelter was the safe place to bring me. I am 5 years old. Here at the shelter I am on the quiet side. I have not lived with other animals or children, so a home where I am the only pet would be best for me. Older children would be fine, I am not to sure about young children. A buddy is what I would like most, are you looking for one? I have a special adoption fee, please come soon!
