Justice for Dogs is run entirely by volunteers. We have a core group of wonderful people who have dedicated themselves to finding good homes for as many cats and dogs as possible. There are always opportunities for those who would like to help, whether for an hour or full time. Click on the button below to check out how you can save these dogs and cats.

Most of the animals we take in are fostered. This helps to acclimate them to home life, and In some cases, health or behavioral issues are addressed. If you are interested in learning more about fostering, please click the button below.

It was in November of 2007 that

Justice for Dogs was born.

Amy Touchette our founder realized that the outlook of dogs that didn't make it into the regular shelters was grim. However she believed that every dog deserved a chance for a loving home even the harder to adopt animals. With love and care they could all find amazing homes and many years later we have been incredibly successful at just that.

Our adopters are wonderful people with huge hearts and caring homes for dogs and kitties alike. 

Please consider becoming one of our pack members!

We know you've always wanted a dog or cat. And now's the time, friends! We are here to help you get ready for your new family member as soon as you're ready to take the big plunge. Owning an animal is, after all, one of the most gratifying things you can do. Studies show that you will even live a longer and happier life with a fur-friend by your side!


It's hard knowing what to do when you're about to adopt. But, we make this process even easier when you adopt with us, because we will guide you through the process and  will go over every possible question or concern you and your family might have on introducing your newest pal to the family. 


We work hard to make sure that we take care of all of our pets here at Justice for Dogs. But, unfortunately we can't do it without people like you and your donations of time and money. So, if you ever feel like you want to be a part of our family and help some of the best animals around, check us out.
