Is your dog pushy, rude, or just overly exuberant with people? Did you just get a new dog and want to start off on the right paw? Following Dr. Sofia Yin’s “Learn to Earn” Program can help establish a well mannered dog.

Is your family expecting? Family Paws Parent Education is an amazing resource on how to foster a relationship of success between baby and dog.

Occasionally the actions of your beloved pets are puzzling to you and may not be corrected by basic training programs, if this is the case it may be time to call a Professional Pet Behaviorist to determine the root of the problem and how to correct it. Check out this listing of certified behaviorists.


When we find ourselves with donations of supplies that we can’t utilize for our shelter pets, we allocate those supplies to our pet meals on wheels recipients. After those folks/pets are provided for, remaining supplies will now neatly line our new walk-in pet pantry located right here at 11 Old Rt. 28 in Ossipee (across from the post office).

The Pet Pantry shares our shelters’ open hours which are Tues. – Sat. 11 am – 4 pm.
We welcome pet owners struggling to make ends meet to take what they require to keep their pets cozy and fed, free of charge. Donations are welcomed but not anticipated. We anticipate 2023 will be a difficult year for many and hope this added community service will be a helpful one. The contents of the pet pantry will vary daily depending on what has been donated. The pet pantry runs on a first come, first served basis.
