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!
To all, we wish a joyous Holiday Season and a New Year of peace and kindness. With each of you by our side, we are able to continue our support of the Taunton Animal Shelter cats and dogs. Please consider a donation this Holiday Season to the Friends of the Taunton Animal Care Facility in support of our mission to assist the shelter animals in finding adoptive homes (click on the DONATE tab at the top of the page).
Thank you and the very best in 2017.
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.
LACEY is a female Am Staff mix, about 3 years old. Lacey has been waiting for over one year for that special person to walk into the shelter and fall in love with her! She is an energetic and beautiful girl who is looking for a home and family with someone who is familiar with the breed and has lots of love to give her. A fenced yard would be ideal - Lacey loves running and playing in the play yard at the shelter with the volunteers. She loves outdoor activities: running in the snow in the winter, playing in the leaves in the fall, jumping into the swimming pool in the summer... In fact, she absolutely loves the water and would spend all day in the pool, if she could! (...To see Lacey enjoying herself in the pool at the shelter, please click on her video under her individual Petfinder Write-up. It is guaranteed to bring a smile to your day!...) Lacey loves squeakie toys and her favorite treat is anything with peanut butter! :) It is recommended that Lacey be the only pet in the home. Lacey needs some time to get to know new people and feel safe and secure. Once she feels safe and secure, she will snuggle, "kiss", and "wag" from head to toe. She gets nervous with quick and sudden movements and loud noises, and a quiet adult-only home would be preferred. Several visits prior to adoption is recommended and would make the transition from shelter to home smoother for all. She enjoys going for walks and walks well on the leash, with the use of a martingale collar and easy-walk harness. Our trainer has offered (1) FREE hr consult and (1) FREE 1 hr basic manners training session, with additional lessons to follow at a discounted rate. It is recommended that Lacey's adopters continue with her training. She is a smart girl, eager to learn, and wants to please. HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY from LACEY and all her friends at the Taunton Shelter!

My family moved and left me behind. I was hoping with all my might that they would be looking for me, but I am still waiting. The neighbor said that I was 10 years old. Homeless at this age is difficult. I pass the time by napping and playing with my toys, but that is not how I want to spend my days. Are you looking for a companion? I sure am! I am not that fond of being held, but I love being patted. I would love to be your buddy. I am spending time with the house cats and am doing fine with them all. I have a special adoption fee. Please come soon to meet me. UPDATE: I am now in foster care. My foster care family consists of cats and a senior dog. I am doing fine with everyone. Please email email@example.com if you would like to know more about me.
