Open 24/7; free to all
We know that many are struggling financially now so we've ramped up our pet food pantry and made it available to all pet owners who need it at no charge.
The pantry is located in front of our main entrance at 780 Chief Justice Cushing Highway (Route 3A) in Scituate.
We ask that customers take only what they need in order to ensure that other pets will get necessary supplies. *Please note: we need donations, particularly Friskies dry cat food and dry dog food for 'sensitive stomachs'
Senior pet owners: sign up!
We have started a new pilot program called Phone Pals which pairs animal loving volunteers with senior pet owners who are isolated due to the COVID-19 situation.
Volunteers are matched with a senior pet owner, and then telephone their new 'friend' frequently to check in on the household's pet and provide a friendly voice at a lonely time.
If you know a senior who would be cheered by more phone calls (who wouldn't?) please click the link below.

The Boston Marathon has been tentatively postponed to September. We are in search of a runner who is interested in participating in this race and helping us raise funds for our shelter pets and community programs.
If you would like to be considered, please contact Maryann Regan at Maryannregan@scituateanimalshelter.org
We are so grateful to business sponsors Orange Theory and Bay State Paving for supporting this effort!
Help an animal in your home
Foster families are crucial to us. During the beginning of the virus crisis, we were able to quickly transfer all animals in to foster homes because of our extensive foster network. This enabled us to follow social distancing guidelines while still continuing shelter operations, including adoptions.
We do not currently need more foster families, but if you are interested in fostering at a future date, please contact Kelly Gibson at the email below. Thank you!
Donations & supplies needed
There are so many ways to help now!
1. We are raising money to help meet the needs of pet owners who are now facing financial hardship. We want to support them so that their animals don't become homeless. You may donate at the button below.
