Please be advised that our dog kennels will be closed until further notice. We unfortunately have a few cases of a non fatal illness that can be transmitted to humans. We are taking all necessary precautions to treat our animals and keep everyone healthy. Our cat areas are still open. We are open for donation drop offs, volunteers and general inquires. We feel confident that this will resolve itself quickly. As always, we are vigilant regarding the health and wellness of our animals and the public. We are taking measures above and beyond what is required to ensure that we are maintaining the standard of care that we hold ourselves to.  Thank you for your understanding.

The Healthy Haven Campaign is a new campaign launched in October of 2016 to raise much needed matching funds for the Northampton County Community Investment Partnership Program!

We need your help to secure these funds! All proceeds will go toward the modern construction of our facility.

Spay & Neuter Clinic

Reducing homeless pets in Northampton County

The Center for Animal Health & Welfare offers a comprehensive spay/neuter program that allows for low cost surgeries for feral and stray cats.  Throughout the week, dedicated veterinarians and volunteers help to perform surgeries to help prevent and manage the animal overpopulation crisis.  Low income families are also welcome to use these services for their pets.

This program benefits all of the Center’s animals, since all animal are spayed or neutered before they are adopted from our shelter.
