Dighton Animal Shelter Grand Opening Ceremony

The grand opening ceremony for the new Dighton Animal Shelter will be held on Saturday, February 8, 2020 at 11am. Our state delegation has been invited and will be in attendance, as will local dignitaries. The public is invited, welcomed, and encouraged to attend. This is YOUR building!

Just a brief history: the Commonwealth granted us $25,000 for the shelter thanks to the advocacy of our state delegation. Thanks to Dightonians, the Town of Dighton matched the grant funds with an additional $25,000 so we could have an animal shelter of which we can all be proud! The hard work was completed by our Highway and Building Departments, so big thanks to them!

The new shelter is located at the same address as the Transfer Station (821 Tremont Street), but please note that the shelter has its own separate entrance and is separated from the Transfer Station by a fence.
