About Shultz’s Guest House

Shultz’s Guest House is a 501c3 dog rescue shelter, located on 200 private acres in Dedham, MA. Hard to imagine that such a place exists for homeless dogs, but it does. Surrounded by forests, ponds, with the Charles River running through it, dogs and visitors have a sense of stepping into paradise.

The shelter is also a quarantine facility fully licensed by the state of Massachusetts. We have accommodations for up to twenty dogs. SGH provides its dogs with indoor-outdoor kennels in a newly renovated stable. Each dog has access to a large outdoor play and exercise area, monitored by staff on a daily basis. Our dedicated volunteers provide daily stimulation within a structured schedule. We believe that allowing a dog to thrive in this quiet, stress free and natural setting helps make the transition to a permanent home a smooth and happy experience for all.

Even our volunteers, from all walks of life and professions, say Shultz’s Guest House surrounded by nature’s healing powers, is good medicine for the soul. Imagine how the dogs feel!
