About Our Shelter:

The Quincy Animal Shelter is a Volunteer-run organization. It was incorporated in November 1999 as a non-profit Massachusetts charity. It is 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 7,000 cats and dogs into loving and forever homes.

As a "no kill" shelter, we make every effort to find a great home for every animal in our care.

Delivering this type of care involves many Volunteers (currently more than 120), an active and dedicated management, and a lot of money. Currently we need to raise over $150,000 every year in order to keep doing what we do to help the dogs and cats in our care.
Our capacity at the Shelter is limited to a maximum of 12 dogs and 25 cats, depending on ages and condition of the cats. We have dreams of a larger facility and a larger budget in the near future...

Surrenders are only accepted from residents of QUINCY, and first preference is given to animals previously adopted from the Quincy Animal Shelter. A $35.00 surrender fee per animal is required. All surrendered animals MUST be up to date on vaccines, and owners must provide a copy of all medical records.

Why should you adopt?

Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog, adopting a cat, adopting a kitten or adopting a puppy versus getting dogs for sale, cats for sale, puppies for sale or kittens for sale from a dog breeder or a cat breeder? When someone is breeding puppies or breeding kittens, they are creating new dogs and cats who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog, cat, puppy or kitten and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale or buy a cat for sale from a puppy breeder or a kitten breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs and cats who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder or buying a cat or kitten for sale from a cat breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog, adopt a cat, adopt a puppy or adopt a kitten at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
