                  Support The Randolph Animal Pound

The Friends of the Randolph Animal Pound
The Friends of the Randolph Animal Pound is a group of individuals who advocate for homeless animals by providing support services for the pound.  Membership is open to residents of all communities. The Friends serve the cause by raising funds for veterinary services and by contributing and soliciting dog and cat food, bedding, toys and other items needed by pound “residents.” Some of the members help out at adoption days, serve as dog walkers or act as foster parents for kittens who need to be socialized before they are ready to be adopted into their forever homes. For more information visit their website:
Are you contemplating the addition of a four-legged furry friend to your family?   The adoption procedure is simple and the adoption fee is nominal.  Local Pets available for adoption may be seen at the shelter or previewed online at
