Roscoe 4Adopt:

Every dog in DTUA is looking for his/her forever home.  If you are looking for a loving dog to add to your family, consider adopting a prison dog.  All DTUA dogs are adopted through our rescue partner, Great Dog Rescue New England

Josie, Cycle 6 GradSpay/Neuter your pet:

3-4 million pets are euthanized in America every year because there aren’t enough homes for them.  Spaying or neutering your pet stops the cycle of unwanted litters and prevents those pets from ending up in a shelter.  Spay or neuter your pet today!
