The Top 20 Dog Shelters in the United States

Dog shelters offer a respite for animals who have no other place to go. They fulfill a vital need in society because of the large numbers of dogs who for one reason or another, find themselves homeless. The majority of animals in these shelters are there because they were found roaming the streets or perhaps their original owners passed away or could no longer care for them. It is a heartbreaking situation for the animals who are not at fault for their circumstances.

Not all of these facilities offer humane accommodations for the animals that are in their care. Many are overcrowded and lack the staff and financial resources to provide the necessary care. If you are considering adopting a dog or if you find yourself in the position of needing to place a dog in their care, it’s important to choose one that has been highly rated as being a no-kill center. In addition, the facility should have a reputation for being caring, providing the essential needs of the animals within its walls, and have an excellent record for providing adoptions.

Here are the top 20 dog shelters in the United States which meet this criteria.
