For Ighvee, Home is Where Her Heart Is
For Ighvee, a Kelpie/Shepherd mix, life had never been easy. For her and her owner, home was nothing more than a tent alongside a rural road in Georgia.

When animal welfare organizations work together to help more pets and the people who love them, everyone wins. That's the fundamental goal of Northeast Animal Shelter's new affiliation with MSPCA-Angell.

Leave a Legacy of Love
Teresa Contardo's world was filled with critters, at home or oceans away. She believed everything alive was entitled to be loved, and many of the pets that made up her family were adopted from Northeast Animal Shelter. By leaving a sizable donation in her will to our Shelter, Teresa helped secure NEAS' ability to continue to care for homeless animals. You too can make a lasting difference for pets in need by joining our Forever Friends Legacy Society.

"Oh hey there, my name is Luke. I'm a bit of a shy guy, and not a fan of shelter life — it's too scary! That said, I got along quite well with my feline foster siblings — play time was my favorite. My ideal home is one in which I have a little time to settle in."
