Scituate Animal Shelter….”The Lucky Ones Come to Us”
If you have a Loving, Forever Home for a cat or dog, please check out The Scituate Animal Shelter on Rte 3A in Scituate. Previously located on The Driftway in Scituate (since 1992, due to a bequest from Eleanor Haughey, a Scituate resident and quiet supporter of the Friends of the Scituate Animal Shelter), Scituate Animal Shelter is now located in a brand new shelter at 780 Chief Justice Cushing Highway in Scituate. Operated by the Friends of the Scituate Animal Shelter, the Scituate Animal Shelter is a not-for-profit 501(c)3, primarily volunteer, no-kill animal shelter that is funded solely by private donations.
Scituate Animal Shelter (SAS) believes pet overpopulation can and should be addressed without resorting to unnecessary euthanasia of adoptable animals. SAS exists to benefit both the companion animals and people of our community by operating as a no-kill animal shelter that provides adoption/rescue services and meaningful outreach programs which advance the welfare of companion animals, serve our community, and make a positive impact on pet overpopulation.
Maybe you’d like to be a Volunteer? email@example.com. I have been a SAS Volunteer since August 2013 and find it enormously fulfilling. I’m proud to be a part of the 120 trained, qualified volunteers from across the greater South Shore region!
SAS also facilitates accessible, affordable community programs, including: Mary Hooper Elder Pet Care (HELP) program: Dedicated to Helping Seniors Keep Their Pets Happy and Healthy!
SAS offers in-school programs in order to develop the next generation of responsible pet owners. Also there are pre-arranged, in-house tours available for small groups (i.e. Boy/Girl Scouts, etc). You will be able to see how lovingly the staff and volunteers take care of the animals up for adoption until each finds their Forever Home. Please contact SAS at: 781-544-4533 or visit their website today to check-out all the animals currently up for Adoption! www.ScituateAnimalShelter.org. SAS works towards a time when every adoptable pet has a proper, loving home.
