The Lowell Animal Shelter needs your help!

Volunteering is a great way to help the community and to improve the lives of the animals in the Shelter's care.

The Lowell Animal Shelter is always in need of volunteers to assist with kennels, cleaning, grooming, and socialization of both dogs and cats. If you'd like to help, visit the Shelter, or download the volunteer application using the link below. Once you've filled out and returned it to the Shelter, we'll contact you.

Choose your area of interest
Volunteers can choose to work in a variety of areas, including dog socialization and walking, cat socialization, kennel cleaning, and bathing/grooming. All potential volunteers will be interviewed prior to placement in areas of interest. The information you provide in your application will help LAS find the most satisfying and appropriate volunteer assignment(s) for you.

Shelter Needs:
Dog Treats- small ones, soft and crunchy
Doggy chews
Dog & Cat Food- dry and canned
Toys (preferably ones with no stuffing in them)
Cat Litter
Dish Soap with bleach in it
Any used items: towels, blankets, dog houses, leashes, collars, etc.
Anything and everything is greatly appreciated.

All dogs and cats must wear an identification collar or tag that states the owner's name, address and phone number on it.

All dogs and cats over the age of 4 months and other pets that are subject to rabies must have annual rabies vaccinations given by an accredited veterinarian. The metal tag showing the evidence of their vaccinations must be attached to their collars or harnesses.

When any animal has bitten, scratched, or otherwise attacked a person, the person or anyone having knowledge of such an incident must immediately notify Animal Welfare at the Lowell Police Department.

No person may harbor more than 4 dogs and/or cats over the age of 6 months on one premise.

It is unlawful for any person to keep any injured or infected animal without providing proper treatment for the injured, sick or diseased animal. Such care must be rendered in a timely manner.

All dogs and cats must be on a leash when not on the owner's premises. Any dogs or cats that have been picked up while running at large will be impounded at the Lowell Police Department and will be subject to a $25 pick up fee.

Animal may be considered a nuisance or hazardous animal when they:

1. Chase passerby or passing vehicles

2. Attack other domestic animals

3. Trespass on school grounds

4. Are repeatedly at large

5. Damage private or public property

6. Bark, whine, or howl in an excessive, continuous, or untimely fashion

7. Cause fouling of the air by odor and thereby creates unreasonable annoyance

8. Interfere with refuse collection or other service personnel

9. Defecate on property other than property owned by its owner keeper or harborer while at large or while under restraint

Make a Friend, save a life.

The Lowell Animal Shelter is dedicated to placing stray or homeless cats and dogs in permanent homes.

By adopting a cat or dog, you're giving an animal a new life. The adoption application is available as a PDF below, or can be picked up at our shelter. Submission can be through mail, email, fax or in person.

A Welfare officer will review the application to ensure that the potential adopter is a good match for their animal. If everything checks out, it's approved!

After Approval:
After approval, you must pay the adoption fee- $75 for dogs and $65 for cats. This cost covers your pet's spay/neuter, microchipping and updated shots. The vet appointment for the spay/neuter and the shots can be arranged by the shelter, the shelter will even take your pet for you! Once the appointment has been finished and your pet is back, you're free to take them home.

Why do we require a spay/neuter?
One of the goals of the Lowell Animal Shelter is to reduce the pet overpopulation- spaying/neutering is the best way to prevent an unwanted littler. Both cats and dogs can have over ten offspring in a litter, and an unspayed cat may have two litters a year. The ASPCA estimates that there are over 70 million stray cats alone in the United States don't contribute to that number.
