Helping Massachusetts pets & the people who love them since 1992.
Fluffy came to us in very rough shape. He is an adorable little dog with a funny underbite. He is very sweet to those he loves, but wary of strangers and intolerant of a lot of handling. He will need a patient owner to work on his issues, including housetraining. Fluffy is not a fan of other dogs, and seems to show fear towards men but can warm up to them in time.
Each year, our shelter finds homes for an average of 500+ animals and reunites dozens of 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.
Helping animals means helping the people who love them, too. Recent programs include a 24/7 free pet food pantry for any pet owner facing financial need due to the pandemic, as well as ongoing low cost neuters and veterinary care for community pet owners.
Our programs help to keep our region's feral cat population in check, while improving quality of life for these vulnerable animals. At SAS we trap, neuter, and then release feral adults to live out their lives more healthfully, without producing litters of homeless kittens. Any kittens born stray are adopted, generally in pairs. Our volunteers further provide winter shelters and monitor feral colonies to ensure the cats are healthy.
