A Parade


March 15th, 2020

There's a reason our home town is called the Irish Riviera....nobody celebrates like us on St. Patrick's Day.  Cheer us on as we march in Scituate's famous and beloved St. Patrick's Day Parade.   

Party !


March 28th 7pm

Join us for a lively get- together with drinks, live music and great raffle prizes to benefit our pets.

This party at The Draft on 53 in Hanover, MA will support Lauren McDonough's Marathon run for our animals, but is open to all. Tickets will go on sale soon.  Watch this space!

Marathon Run


April 20th, 2020

This year, our friend Lauren McDonough will be running the Boston Marathon to raise money for our pets. 

Lauren was moved by the urgent need for medical care for shelter pets; many of the animals that SAS helps come to us with expensive medical conditions.

Lauren is a Rockland resident and mom to two dogs. 

Kids and Pets


More opportunities for kids

We are currently expanding our programs for youth volunteers.   

Opportunities will include programs for young children to read to shelter pets, work with our marketing team to publicize animals in search of homes, and to become more involved in nearly all aspects of running a busy animal charity.  Watch this space! 



Supplies needed!

A busy shelter is always in need of items to keep running.  Donations of supplies help us to spend our funds where they really matter:  on taking care of our pets and funding our humane initiatives in the community.

To see what we currently need, please click the button below.  It will enable you to order items that are then shipped directly to us.   Our pets thank you!

Feral Cats


  TNR programs

Did you know we have programs to  help feral cats, some of the most vulnerable animals in our region? We first identify feral cat colonies and adopt out any kittens.

We then humanely trap and neuter the adults and return them to their colonies. Volunteers monitor the colonies, ensuring they have adequate food and providing shelters in winter.
