The Animal Shelter of Martha’s Vineyard offers pet food, bedding, crates and answers to pet owners’ questions, according to an announcement from shelter director Lisa Dawley.

“The shelter is opened for your needs. Please do not hesitate to contact us. Our number is 508-627-8662,” Ms. Dawley wrote.

If an animal needs to be surrendered to the shelter, it will live in a home-like environment with its own comfortable bed, healthy food and recorded classical music or television playing, with someone nearby all day, Ms. Dawley continued.

“The Animal Shelter of Martha’s Vineyard prides itself on its ability to provide a one-on-one relationship and a no-stress environment for our animals,” she wrote.

“In most surrender cases, the animal is matched to a new home before they stay a night.”
