Come find your new puppy, dog, cat or kitten at the Sterling Animal Shelter located in central New England
It's been many years since I started volunteering at the Sterling Animal Shelter and I could not imagine a better way to spend my days. To see how many homeless pups and cats find love and care and eventually their forever homes is sometimes more than my heart can hold. The job of a shelter employee is hard. They go home tired each day from all the cleaning and lifting that proper care involves. I see these (mostly) women in their labors of love each day and am in awe of what a special shelter they make us. Thousands of animals come through our gates each year for medical care and a second chance at a loving family and there is no better day than when we see a pup find that special family. To all the employees and all my volunteer friends who labor endlessly for the good of the animals I could not be more proud to be in your company.
I adopted my pup Bella from here in June 2014. I had wanted a dog for years but always had landlords that didn't allow pets. I bought my first home in May 2014 and shortly after started talking to friends about places to get a dog. I was informed about Sterling from a friend who rescued his dog from there. When I got home that night I looked at their website and seen this little cute face of a dog that was a lab/mix 3 months old and knew instantly I wanted to bring her home. I drove to Sterling the following morning and told them I wanted to give her a home and she has been my little buddy and now big buddy for over 2 years now. Sterling made my first pet adoption easy and explained everything I would need to do after that to make sure she stayed healthy and for me to be a responsible owner. She loves everything, people, animals, car rides, walks, hiking, playing fetch and just wants to be around so she doesn't miss any fun stuff. Thank You Sterling Animal Shelter for the best sidekick a guy could ask for.

We have adopted 2 dogs from Sterling Animal Shelter in Sterling, Ma. Our first wonderful SATO dog from Puerto Rico was an amazing boy who adapted to our family so well we always said he never did any thing wrong...just a perfect boy who we lost at 12 years old. We decided our other dog needed a friend when he passed so we returned to Sterling Shelter and came home with another SATO pup who has shown to be just as sweet and gentle. The process at Sterling was easy enough and we were all encouraged to participate (even our other dog) in choosing the right fit for our family. The staff does an amazing job taking care to bring these beautiful rescues to a safe place where we can give them their forever homes. Love them!I had a wonderful experience at Sterling Animal Shelter in April 2016. Ruby, aka Mabel is a great black lab/ hound mix. She is a healthy, happy member of our family. I would recommend Sterling to everyone. They make the whole process of adopting a pleasant one. Our current pup, Bella, just turned one year old. She was found in a dumpster. :( The Animal Shelter Inc in Sterling Massachusetts saved her....and we were the lucky family who adopted her. From dumpster to clean luxury sheets....we think she deserves it. :) We love Bella. We love Animal Shelter Inc in Sterling.Recently adopted a beautiful girl, Ruby(Mabel) from Sterling Animal Shelter. It was my 1st visit and I left with a wonderful puppy! The staff was wonderful and concerned about all the puppies well being. Dedicated and hardworking.
