Animals for Adoption

Dogs, cats and other pets are available for adoption at the Animal Shelter from Monday through Saturday by appointment only. Please contact us by calling (781) 784-1513 or the shelter directly at (781) 575-6507.  Animals can be viewed on the website under shelters.

The shelter is located behind the Town of Canton Department of Public Works building on Bolivar Street, Canton, MA.

A legally binding adoption contract must be signed agreeing to humanely house and treat the animal, have the animal spayed/neutered and other reasonable rules concerned with the welfare of the animal. An adoption fee of  $20.00 for dogs and cats is charged as well as an additional $20.00 spay/neuter deposit (which will be returned upon proof that your adopted pet has been spayed/neutered within 3 months of the adoption date).

All family members are required to know about the adoption of a pet in a family.
