Helping Massachusetts pets & the people who love them since 1992.
Smokey is a shy girl who was living 'rough' with a group of feral cats. We trapped her as part of our ongoing programs to help strays, and discovered that she was not a feral cat and had indeed been someone's pet who was either lost or abandoned. Smokey will need a patient, loving owner and would most likely love living with another cat in the household.
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.
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 2019 alone, our pet food pantry programs delivered over 5,000 pounds of pet supplies to those in need.
From 2018 through 2019, we neutered nearly 300 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.
