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.
DIESEL is a male Rottweiler, about 2 years old. He is such a handsome and sweet boy, with a non-stop wagging tail and great "smile". He seems to like almost everyone and would be a welcome addition to any family - although we do recommend no toddlers. We also recommend no cats in the home. Diesel would be happiest as the only dog in the home. He loves to go for walks and walks well on the leash with the use of a martingale collar and easy-walk harness. He enjoys playing in the play yard and socializing with the staff and volunteers. Diesel has quickly become a favorite among many of the volunteers! A fenced yard would be ideal, and training is recommended. Springtime brings the promise of new things, and Diesel is hoping he will soon have a new home and family. He is also hoping the Easter Bunny brings him his very own special Easter Basket filled with special treats and toys. "HOP" on down to the Taunton Shelter to meet this awesome boy, and you will surely fall in love. He will make your life and family complete and will bring lots of love and happiness to your life. HAPPY EASTER from DIESEL and all his friends at the Taunton Shelter!
"For me, a house becomes a home when you add one set of four legs, a happy tail, and that indescribable measure of love that we call a dog." (Roger Caras)
A new baby, that is why I am now at the shelter. Small and sweet. I look like a have been rolling around in cinnamon! I was the only pet in my family. I am not fond of the house cats when they are near my cage, so being the only pet in my adoptive home would be best. I am two years old, being in a shelter is confusing and lonely. I hope you come soon to meet me.
Would you like to feel loved and appreciated? Are you unable to adopt a pet, but would like to spend time with them? Would you like to get some exercise in the great outdoors? Are you interested in the veterinarian/grooming/obedience training fields? Do you love animals? Please call the shelter/come on down and ask about volunteering! The minimum age requirement is 13 years old. Everything from laundry to yard work, to walking dogs, grooming, feeding, fostering, etc... Volunteer Forms are available at the shelter or you may also request one by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
The rewards are endless! The love received is unconditional. The happiness you can bring to the animals that you will feel in your heart at the end of the day is immeasureable!
The Shelter is currently in most need of Martingale Collars, Easy-Walk Harnesses, Purina Cat/Kitten food, Canned Dog/Cat Food (no Meow Mix), Kongs, Disinfectant Cleanser, and Monetary Donations. Sorry, but we are no longer accepting rawhide or Ol' Roy dog food. (We have plenty of sheets and towels at this time and are unable to take anymore until further notice). Thank you!
