Facts about Mumma

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Brown Tabby
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Female
  • Hair: Short
3/10/15- Mumma was probably dumped in Jamaica Plain in her earlier life (we don't know where she came from, but she was probably not born outside). She is now about nine years old, so she's roughed it out for many years on her own! One elderly woman fed her until she herself died. A kind neighbor of the old woman then contacted us. We took her in a few months ago (before all of the crazy weather began). She's very healthy and sweet. Won't you consider giving Mumma the forever home she deserves? Please contact us if you would like to adopt her!

About Second Chance Shelter For Cats

About Our Shelter...

We are a small NO-KILL home-based shelter in the Forest Hills neighborhood of Jamaica Plain and a network of loving foster homes, friends, sympathetic veterinarians and feline rescuers, working to reduce the number of homeless cats in our backyards and on our local Boston streets. We are strictly NO-KILL. We believe that no one has the right to judge (as many shelters do) who is deserving of his or her own life. We euthanize only when a veterinarian concludes an animal is terminally ill with no hope of recovery. We are always asked our hours of operation. We are not staffed during the day, we receive no state, city or federal funding, we are all volunteers who give our time and money for love of the animals. We all work paying jobs during the day and care for the animals every evening.
