Helping Massachusetts pets & the people who love them since 1992.

About Us

Our Shelter

Last year, our shelter found homes for a 509 animals and reunited 55 lost pets with their grateful owners.  Our pets come from every corner of the state and stay with us as long as they need. We do not-- and have never --euthanized for length of stay or shelter space.

Our Community Programs

Helping animals means helping the people who love them, too.  Recent programs include emergency pet food  donations to federal workers impacted by the government shut down and  conducting low cost veterinary clinics for community pet owners. In 2018 alone, our pet food pantry programs delivered over 5,000 pounds of pet supplies to those in need.

Our Feral Cat Initiatives

In 2018, we neutered 240 feral cats.  These cats are among the most vulnerable of the region's animals.  At SAS we  trap, neuter, and then release them to live out their lives more healthfully,  without producing litters of homeless kittens.  Our volunteers provide winter shelters and monitor the colonies to ensure the cats are healthy. We find homes for the kittens born stray.
