Quincy Animal Shelter
The Quincy Animal Shelter is a 100% volunteer run organization.The Shelter has NO PAID STAFF and relies completely on their volunteers and the community for support. Incorporated in November 1999 as a non-profit Massachusetts charity, they are also a recognized charity under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Service code. Since 1999 the Quincy Animal Shelter has placed more than 5,000 cats and dogs into loving and forever homes through out MA and New England.
• As a "no kill" shelter, they make every effort to find the right home for every animal in our care. This means they exercise the same ethical and humane treatment of animals in their facility that you would for your own family feline or canine friend. Every animal receives age-appropriate vaccinations and, if old enough, is spayed or neutered before finding its forever family.
• Delivering this type of care involves many volunteers, an active and dedicated management, and a lot of money. Their budget runs approximately $100,000 every year in order to keep doing what they do to help the dogs and cats of Quincy. Please visit their Volunteer and Wish List pages to find out about ways you can help.
• Their capacity at the Shelter is limited to a maximum of 12 dogs and 15 to 25 cats, depending on ages and condition of the cats. Their dream is to eventually find a larger facility so that they can continue their mission on a larger scale and serve the continuous needs of the community and the animals.
Our hospital, along with our satellite clinic in Quincy, works closely with Quincy Animal Shelter. A licensed veterinarian from our hospital visits the shelter once a week to examine any shelter pets that may need any medical attention as well as examine any new pets brought to the shelter. Further medical attention is sometimes performed at our hospital and when it is time for the pet to be spayed or neutered, we also perform the procedures. The Quincy Animal Shelter can be contacted at 617-376-1349.
