Newsflash The next Sweetpea F.O.R. Animals Shelter board meeting will be held at 7 pm on February 4th, at the John Bauer Senior Center, 17 West Street, Paxton, MA 01612. Click here to see the full agenda.

Sweetpea For Animals is a nonprofit, no-kill animal rescue organization. We take in animals who are on “death row” at other shelters, or whose owners can’t keep them but don’t want to surrender them to a kill shelter. We rely on donations, plus any revenue raised from boarding dogs and cats at our kennels, to run our animal rescue. The November 2015 fire cleaned out our whole year’s operating budget – and then some. We had just taken a mortgage on the rescue shelter and one of the two shelter buildings burned to the ground. We will struggle to rebuild.  If you would like to contribute to our disaster recovery fund, please use one of the donation links in the sidebar.
All of our rescue animals are at the vet or in foster until we can reopen the shelter. We have had so many inquiries about adopting Stella, DiVinchi, Brooklyn Skye and Jade. We are very happy that many of you are willing to open your hearts and homes. See this page for updates on their progress.
