Phoebe on Twitter


A SAS alum is now tweeting

Phoebe, adopted from SAS in May of 2018, has just learned how to tweet.  

At 7 pounds, she's not exactly huge, but she does have a very big voice and when it comes to life as a former shelter dog, she has a lot to say (in under 280 characters).

Boston Marathon


We're running the marathon!

 SAS has been fortunate to receive a bib for the 2019 Boston Marathon.  On April 15th, Carol Hanscom, a canine volunteer and avid runner, will be participating in the famous marathon to raise awareness and funds for our pets.  In particular, she wants to celebrate dogs who typically have a harder time finding homes.
