The Milton Animal League is a volunteer group dedicated to the rescue, care, and adoption of animals in need at the Milton Animal Shelter. Every animal receives the best care possible. Their needs for housing, food and emotional support are met to the best of our ability. Every animal is fully vetted, and receives a physical exam, age appropriate vaccines, blood tests and spay/neuter. All adoptable animals are safe with us until they find their permanent homes with a new family. The Milton Animal Shelter is a 501 C3 non-profit charity organization. We rely solely on adoption and membership fees and donations from generous caring individuals and businesses.
Our process is generally as follows: 1. You and your entire family should come to shelter to meet the pet. Why? Because everyone in the household needs to be committed to the pet and comfortable with the decision. 2. If you're considering a dog, we'll ask if have a dog at home already. You’ll be asked to bring your current pet to the shelter to meet his or her prospective new friend on neutral turf. 3. If you're considering a cat, we'll also ask about your other pets. If it seems like a good match, we'll give you advice about introducing a new cat to the household. 4. We will call your past or present vet to be sure that you've been providing regular vet care to your pets, and that any current pets are spayed or neutered and up-to-date on vaccinations. 5. If you rent, we will need to speak to your landlord before we let you take a pet home. If you own your home, we'll ask to see some proof of ownership (such as a tax bill). 6. We'll ask you to fill out an application, which includes the above questions and a few more. We'll then review that application with you to ensure that it's complete and accurate.
