Shultz logo 
Shultz’s Guest House (SGH) is a 501(c)(3) dog rescue shelter, located on 200 private acres in Dedham. Surrounded by forests and 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 and has accommodations for up to 20 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. Their dedicated volunteers provide daily stimulation within a structured schedule. They believe, allowing a dog to thrive in this quiet, stress free setting with nature at its best, helps make the transition to a permanent home a smooth and happy experience for all.

Even their 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!
