About us

The Animal Aid Society is a "No-Kill" dog shelter. The mission of the Society is to provide to and/or for animals, other than Man, shelter, medical aid, care and protection, to act as a placement agency for dogs in good health, and to provide education for the humane care and treatment of dogs, and to attempt to prevent cruelty to dogs. It is a nonprofit organization which receives no funding from state or federal agencies. All of the funds required to maintain the shelter and care for the dogs come from donations and special fund-raising events. Donations to the shelter are tax deductible.
Our dogs are not euthanized. Dogs are kept at the shelter until placed in a home; however, this means that new dogs can only be accepted by the shelter after previous ones have been adopted or permanently placed in foster care. All our dogs are:
  • Examined by a veterinarian.
  • Receive medical care as needed.
  • Current on vaccinations.
  • Spayed or neutered.
  • Regularly walked and excercised.
  • Socialized and Loved.
  • Temperament tested.
  • Microchipped
The new owner will be able to register the micro-chip at no cost and no annual renewal fees are required.

How to Adopt
We hope that you find your new best friend when you look through this site. When you find a dog(s) that you would like to meet, come and visit with the dog at the shelter, 80 Butler Farm Road, Hampton. If all goes well and you like the dog as much as he/she likes you and you decide to adopt, you will be given a Pre-Adopt Form to fill out. We
may have more than one pre-adopt per dog, so it may take up to ten days to verify all the information you have provided. We will then contact you. Once your family, including any dogs, have also met with the dog you wish to adopt, you will then complete the Adoption Form.

The adoption fee is $150.00.
Adoption fee for Senior dogs age 7 years or more is $75.00.

Don’t just take your dog for a walk… Take your Walk for a Dog! Go to WoofTrax.com, download the app, and support Animal Aid Society shelter every time you walk your dog.
