I adopted my dog Bengy from SHS in 2006. Since that time, I have been a huge supporter and fan of this organization. In particular, they have a program called Shelter Partners. They have two large transport vans that take approximately 30 dogs per van per trip to shelters located in New England where, because they enforce their spay and neuter laws, have a constant shortage of dogs and cats for adoption. Since its' inception in November 2006, they have saved 7,196 lives through this program! The entire staff, board and volunteers of this small shelter consistenly increase adoptions each year by coming up with new innovative programs to increase awareness and save lives!

We have donated to this organization for aproximately 10 years and I have never felt so good about where my money goes. I volunteer with several animal groups and have been impressed with the work SHS is doing, they have so many wonderful programs that help to place the animals in their care and reduced the euthanasia rate. I have had personal experience with the transporting of some puppies I found that had ben dumped in a rural cemetary, I wanted them to go up north for adoption where is a need for shelter animals, both were adopted into loving homes. I appreciate the work SHS is doing and I feel they are leading our area in programs to help the community and the animals in our community.
