I'm Alex, a stunning grey and white five year old boy. My passion is catnip and toys on strings, followed by food. I came in with an attitude but don’t take that against me as I'm just a little surprised at being here. You'll find me quietly enjoying my bed, and interested in what's going on here. I'm very alert and really like people to talk quietly to me and gently approach my temporary home with slow motions and care for my space! Ha, I know you humans understand 'space'! Can you please bring me home where I can have a soft bed, a window to see the outdoors and toys to play with?

About Quincy Animal Shelter

About Our Shelter...

Quincy Animal Shelter (QAS) is a nonprofit organization designated under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code and is recognized as a Massachusetts charity. As a no-kill shelter, we make every effort to find appropriate placement for each animal in our care. Since 1999, we have placed more than 8,000 cats and dogs into loving and forever homes throughout MA and New England.

Before adoption, all animals are checked by a veterinarian, spayed/neutered, micro-chipped, and have received age-appropriate vaccinations. Cats have been tested for Feline Leukemia (FeLV) and Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (FIV). Dogs have been temperament tested and tested for Lyme disease, Heartworm, and other tick related diseases.

Delivering this type of care involves many volunteers, a dedicated Shelter Director and Board of Directors, and a lot of money. Our budget runs approximately $250,000 per year and we rely completely on the community for support. Here's how you can help QAS: volunteer your time; donate money or pet supplies; sponsor a cage or kennel; donate via your corporate matching gift program; become a QAS sponsor; purchase QAS wear; or attend a QAS event!

Our Adoption Process...


The Adoption Fee for our dogs starts at $250, depending on age, breed and medical history of the dog.

The Adoption Fee for our cats starts at $150 depending on age, breed and medical history. Kittens start at $175.

All animals have been spayed / neutered, had all age appropriate vaccinations, tested for Fiv, Feline leukemia or Heartworm. Each animal is also microchipped before they leave QAS.

Surrenders are BY APPOINTMENT ONLY, and only when space is available. 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. ALL DOGS should have Rabies, Distemper and Bortadella vaccinations, and ALL CATS need Rabies, Distemper and a combo test (Felv & FIV).
