The Scituate Animal Shelter

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

Pet Spotlight:  

Kira is a fun and energetic cattle dog who is only one year old. 

Kira is a snuggler who loves to fetch, to run and to play.  She will need some basic training, including continued work with house training, but she is a quick learner who wants to please.  Kira is nervous around other dogs but seems to prefer males to females.

For information about Kira, please email us at

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.
