Seaman Animal Shelter is a no-kill animal shelter designed to support the wonderful animals of lower Cape Cod
The Animal Rescue League has served Cape Cod since 1921. The Cape shelter relocated from Provincetown to Brewster in 1967 in order to care for more animals. Last year, the Brewster shelter found permanent homes for over 720 animals. The facility includes a paddock for large animals, a wildlife rescue team, and an ambulance. The shelter is located at 3981 Main Street (Route 6A) in Brewster. Visit them online at or .
Admission is $7 (no charge for kids 12 and under or dogs). Through the newly established Agway of Cape Cod Charitable Foundation, net proceeds will be donated to The Animal Rescue League of Boston’s Brewster shelter and the Massachusetts Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals’ (MSPCA) Centerville shelter. The two humane organizations will be on site at the event with adoptable animals and information about their services.
