Dedham Shelter

Dedham Animal Care and Adoption Center is located on 27-acres approximately 10 miles southwest of Boston.  Along with housing and adopting small animals, this site serves as a livestock rehabilitation center for large animals. Pine Ridge Cemetery, also located here, is the oldest continuously operated pet cemetery by a humane society in the United States. All animals receive a medical evaluation from our shelter veterinary medicine team.

The Dedham shelter will be closed on November 27 for Thanksgiving.
