The Scituate Animal Shelter

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

Pet Spotlight:  

Persey  loves other dogs, is house trained, walks nicely on a leash, LOVES tennis balls and really enjoys getting attention.  

When he first arrived he was very nervous. He has settled in well, but his new home needs to understand that he will be nervous with meeting new people, so they shouldn't allow strangers to approach  quickly. He doesn't appreciate chaos, so a home without children would be best. 

There is no adoption fee for a good fit for Persey. If you're interested, email/call or stop by to meet him!

About Us

Our Shelter

Last year, our shelter found homes for a record 602 animals and reunited 100 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.  We  help keep pets in their own homes, with the people who love them, by donating pet wellness services and supplies to pet owners in need.  Our pet food pantry programs delivered over 5,000 pounds of pet food and pet supplies in 2017.

Our Feral Cat Initiatives

Feral 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.
