We depend on donations to to keep the shelter running


We are always in need of adult volunteers and have some opportunities for students age 16 and up.

Visiting the Shelter

All visits to the Shelter are by appointment

We are continuing to host adoption meetings by appointment only and are asking all potential adopters to continue wearing masks for all indoor meetings. We have a donation shed right outside our front door and gratefully accept donations of unopened dog and cat food and other supplies.

As of 1/17/22 we are not accepting donations of towels or blankets because we have more than we can store. We don’t use large comforters or pillows so do not accept them as donations.

If you would like to help us by donating food and supplies, we have updated our Amazon Wish List with our most needed items at the top (cat litter, canned cat food, and dry cat food). 

Please fill out our adoption application if you see a pet on our site you would like to meet and we will contact you to set up an appointment if the pet is still available.

How to Find Us

To get to the Shelter, please use 99 West Street Medfield in your GPS. We are one driveway past that address and there is a large sign on the street. Appointments are required for adoption meetings and to relinquish a pet.

Need to Surrender a Pet?

We are taking in new pets including owner surrenders. We take in pets whenever space is available and accept dogs, cats, guinea pigs, bunnies, and birds. If you need to relinquish a pet, please fill out our surrender form or send an email to and tell us about the pet including when and why you need to relinquish him/her.

Betty White Challenge

The Betty White Challenge has been such an unexpected gift for shelters and rescues! We have already received so many nice donations of both money and items from our wish list in honor of what would have been Betty White’s 100th birthday. Thank you to everyone that has chosen the Medfield Shelter to honor her legacy with a donation. Click here if you wish to Donate

Donations/Wish List

We are currently in need of bleach, greens for our guinea pigs (romaine or red leaf lettuce, carrot tops, parsley, and cilantro), Fancy Feast turkey flavor canned food for kittens, Fancy Feast poultry and beef flavors for adult cats and small bags of unscented scoopable cat litter (Ocean State Job Lot sells 15 lb. bags that we like). Donations can be dropped off at the Shelter in the donation shed at our front door or you may order from our Amazon Wish List and have it shipped directly to us. The Amazon Wish List has many of the items we use the most often.
