About the shelter

Odie’s Sanctuary Animal Shelter has been created to honor Otis, a truly great shelter dog that passed away in January. We are building an amazing sanctuary for homeless animals and give them the second chance that they deserve.

Have you ever thought about where stray dogs and cats go when they are caught? Have you ever considered the fates of runaways, or abandoned pets, if they are lucky enough for someone with a good heart to find them? The South Coast has thousands of stray dogs and cats roaming the streets, and many of them eventually find their way to shelters.

My dog Otis was one such animal. We found him at a shelter, and took him home. And in our home he was a friend, a confidante, and a part of the family. He passed away in January, and while he is gone his memory is not. The fact that Otis was able to be a part of our lives came down to luck as much as anything else. Nearly all of the shelters in our area have a kill policy; animals who are perfectly adoptable may end up being euthanized because they are old, or not socialized well, or have simply spent too long in an overcrowded shelter.

But we want to ensure that Otis’s name, and the joy he brought to us, lives on. So we are establishing Odie’s Place, a no-kill shelter right here in the New Bedford/Dartmouth area. We will do whatever it takes to make sure that every animal that comes in through our front doors leaves, one day, with its forever family.
