The Plymouth Animal Shelter is a town facility in the Cedarville section of Plymouth. We provide shelter to homeless and abandoned cats and dogs in Plymouth.  We are open Monday thru Friday 10 am to 12 pm and Saturday & Sunday by appointment.  Cat adoption is Monday – Thursday 10 – 12.       Dog adoption is by appointment only.
Adoption Policy: 
  • We strive to match you with a companion that is suitable for you and your family’s lifestyle.
  • We do not do same-day adoptions.
  • When you meet an animal that you would like to adopt, you will fill out an application and we will check your veterinary references.
  • Some of the animals we rescue have been abused in past homes, so we try our hardest to find them the safest “forever” home possible.
  • Some animals want to be your one and only, or have a lot of energy and need a fenced yard to run around, so we will ask about other pets and your home’s indoor and outdoor environments.
  • For more information, please call our pet adoption number at 508-888-1186
Volunteer: We are looking for adult volunteers to become foster parents to provide a temporary, loving home to a dog, cat, or kitten until we can find them a “forever” home.  If you have room in your home for just one more dog or cat, please contact us. We also need volunteers to answer the phones in the morning from 9 to 12 pm, weekdays. If you can fill in even one morning a week, please give us a call. Or, serve as a dog walker, or help take care of our cats in the morning. If you love animals and would like to become a volunteer, please call 508-888-1186.
