Ways to help

Fostering

Foster families bring pets temporarily into their homes, caring for cat moms and kittens, as well as providing love and care for the dogs and cats whose health or emotional issues make shelter life too hard. SAS provides all food and supplies, fosters just must have time, patience and space!

Our TNR programs help feral cats stay healthy and keep populations humanely in check. Cats are humanely trapped, neutered, and then returned to their colonies to life out their lives more healthfully.

How you help Volunteers are essential to us. They care for our cats, dogs and small animals, help to match homeless pets with new families, and aid in fundraising efforts.
About us In 2017, SAS celebrated its 25th year of helping Massachusetts animals. Our mission is to improve the quality of life for both the companion animals and the people of our community by providing shelter and placement for homeless animals and support through community services and humane education. In the past five years alone, our shelter has found homes for 2280 animals from all over Massachusetts. Pets come to us as strays, as surrenders from owners no longer able to care for them, and as transfers from shelters and animal control facilities with no more room. Because of the generosity of our donors, we continue to make a positive impact on animal welfare in our community by offering services that promote the health and well being of companion animals and address the root causes of pet homelessness. We strive to help our region's pet owners and to educate adopters and the public about animal welfare issues.
