Say hello to Jax! Jax is a 7 year old dachshund/ chihuahua mix – young for these breeds! Petite Jax is hoping to find a home that can offer him some stability. Our friends at Scituate Animal Shelter say due to a lot of change in his life recently, Jax is very nervous and is unsure who to trust. 

Jax is looking for a home where he can be an only pet. He enjoys really long walks. Other animals make him very nervous and he prefers to not be around them. Once Jax bonds with a person he becomes their best buddy. He needs someone who can give him time and patience to adjust. Because he’s a nervous guy, he’s going to be best suited in an adult-only home. A home with a lot of visitors may be too overwhelming for him, so he does prefer a more quiet place.

Visit Jax during open hours (see below) or email adopt@scituateanimalshelter.org for more information! There’s no need to make an appointment – just stop by! All dogs are fixed, vaccinated, dewormed, flea treated and heartworm/lyme tested before adoption. Adoption fees are $360 for a dog, $460 for a puppy, and $250 for a dog with special needs or senior over 10 years old.

Open hours:

Sunday: 11:00am-2:30pm

Monday: Closed

Tuesday: 2:30pm-7:00pm

Wednesday: 2:30pm-7:00pm

Thursday: 2:30pm-7:00pm

Java

Say hello to Java! Our friends at Yorkies, Inc. tell us Java is super sweet loves to be held and patted. He is a 3.8lb, 3 1/2 year old Yorkie who does well with other small dogs. He has a real spring in his step and is friendly. He is not showing much interest in toys yet but loves to explore outside.  He will use a pee pad and go outside if taken. He is still marking, however. We are hoping we see improvement after he is neutered. He barks when he wants to be fed but then takes his sweet time to eat and often doesn’t finish. Visit https://www.yorkiesinc.com/ to learn more about Java.

Bergeron1

****UPDATE: Bergeron has been adopted!!!! 10/7/19

Say hello to Bergeron! Bergeron is a black and white, three-year old boy cat. Bergeron somehow got lost from his original home and ended up at Standish Humane Society in Duxbury. Once Bergeron adjusted to Standish, volunteers started noticing his very engaging personality. If Bergeron was in a beauty pageant for cats, he would easily win Mr. Congeniality. He might also win the whole pageant, because he’s quite handsome.

Bergeron is curious and wants to be in the center of things, lovable as can be, and very affectionate. He can also be a prankster, especially when you try to take his pic – check out his upside down photo below! Bergeron has a  joyful attitude, and is very entertaining and fun to play with.

If you need a near perfect companion, go and see Bergeron.  P.S. he likes tunnel toys and mouse wands–homemade or store bought.

Izzy

Meet Izzy! Izzy is a beautiful, large Maine Coon cat who is about 10-years-old. This stunning senior is looking for a home where she can be the queen bee, with no other pets around. Izzy is social and would make a great companion to someone who is looking for an only cat.

Izzy has a real sassy side, so she needs a cat savvy owner who can deal with her when she is in a bad mood. You may have heard us chatting with Maryann from the Scituate Animal Shelter about some of their sassy cats, Izzy is in that group.

Izzy is in a foster home so you’ll want to give the shelter a call to arrange a time to meet her: 781-544-4533 ext. 301. All cats are fixed, vaccinated, combo tested, dewormed and flea treated at the time of adoption. There is no adoption fee for Izzy! https://scituateanimalshelter.org/

Georgie

 

Meet Georgie! Georgie is looking for his forever home and he’s currently residing at CARE Southcoast in Acushnet. He is a 2.5 year old hound mix of sorts. He is crate and potty trained. He has lived with other dogs so could live with an easy going dog his size with slow intros and savvy humans to make sure everyone is comfortable. He has seen cats and not been phased so cats are also a possibility with slow intros. No small kids for Georgie’s home thought.  He would love a tall fenced yard (6’ and up) or even just a runner to hang out with his people while supervised. He’s snuggly and loving and wants a home that will not give up on him and who work with him through any insecurities he may be feeling.

Would you like a running or hiking buddy? This is your guy. He’ll also hang out and watch movies on a quiet Saturday night. Please share our handsome boy! Please email caredogvolunteers@gmail.com for more info!

Buzz

**UPDATE: BUZZ has been adopted! Yay

Here’s Buzz! Buzz is a handsome 8 year old male Yorkie who weighs around 7 lbs. Buzz is a former show dog who has recently been retired by his breeder. Buzz has been fully vetted including: neuter, updated on vaccines, heartworm and Lyme negative, micro chipped and had his last tooth pulled. During his dental Buzz is a sweet boy, does fine with the other small dogs. Buzz is pretty independent and will go outside or use pee pads but he will still need further work on house training. Currently Buzz is still using the belly band for leg lifting but that should get better now that he’s neutered. He will need leash training if walks are on the agenda, but he does fine in a small fenced yard. Buzz is a sweet little guy who gets along well with other small dogs, and our friends at Yorkie’s Inc. have even seen him playing a few times. If you are interested in adopting Buzz when he is ready please submit an application at www.yorkiesinc.com Thank you!

Baby Harley 4

Meet the adorable duo of Harley and Baby! This lovely duo are so bonded that they literally cuddle together. Harley, a one year old grey tiger/tabby girl, is often observed grooming Baby, a black, brown and white 3 year old girl – you cannot help but smile watching them. Baby has cardiomyopathy, a heart condition that, although not curable, can be managed with medication; she takes atenolol (which costs around $18 for 100 tablets) which can be mixed with her wet food. These two young ladies have lots of love to give and are looking for their forever home together. Our friends at the Quincy Animal Shelter invite you to come and meet the girls – they know you’ll fall in love. The shelter, located at 56 Broad Street in Quincy, is open Tuesday and Thursday from 6:00 – 8:00 p.m. and Saturday from 10:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. https://www.quincyanimalshelter.org/

She is quite beautiful with her long coat and impressive tail. She loves people but needs to be the only cat. Jaded lost her home when her owner lost his. Jaded had been with her owner since she was a kitten. She is just a big happy ball of fluff who will make a nice pet for almost anyone. She loves to be next to a human, and loves having her cheeks and head scratched. For more information on Jaded visit http://www.standishhumane.org/.

Zeus is a strikingly handsome fellow who is about 6-years-old. This strong guy is looking for a home that can keep him busy. At his age he would still love long walks and hikes or to run around in a yard, but after he is tired he would love to cuddle up. Our friends at Scituate Animal Shelter say don’t let his big block head fool you, Zeus is a big baby who doesn’t like to be home alone too long!

 

Zeus has lived with children and we are recommending a home with kids over the age of 12 years who can handle his size. Zeus has lived with a small dog and they were buddies, but it would be great if he found a home with a larger dog, someone more his size and play style. He is nervous around cats and could most likely live safely in a home with one.

 

You can visit Zeus during our Scituate Animal Shelter’s open hours or email adopt@scituateanimalshelter.org for more information!

raven

 

Say hello to Raven, a 5 to 7 year old black and white tuxedo beauty with the silkiest fur. The Friends of the Marshfield Animal Shelter tells us that Raven has been waiting patiently to find her forever home — she had her last of many litters during a snow storm on March 4th and all of her kittens have been adopted. She is now spayed and up to date on all vaccines and it’s her time to find her forever home. Raven loves treats and playing with toys. She does not like to be picked up, but does enjoy petting and affection. She will warm up to her lucky new owners over time. Email friendsofthemarshfieldshelter@yahoo.com if you are interested in meeting Raven!

Lilac and Brandi are an adorable bonded pair of female Yorkshire Terriers. Lilac (left in photo) is 4 years old and weighs around 12 lbs and her sister Brandi is 3.5 years old and slightly bigger than Lilac. They have been together since puppies and get along great together, and due to this reason our friends at Yorkies Inc. are only adopting them out as a pair. They like walks, playing fetch and running in the yard, in fact they would love a home with a fenced in yard. They do well with children too. They are used to going outside to potty but also have become accustomed to having a pee pad available in case of emergencies. They enjoy being on the couch with you especially Lilac who loves lap time. They have been kept up with regular vetting since puppies and they are both in good health. If you would like to be considered for them please fill out an application at www.yorkiesinc.com Thank you!

maryTabby280

***UPDATE: Mary has been adopted, 8.18.19***

Meet Mary! Mary is a beautiful one and a half year-old tabby girl who needs a home. Our friends at Standish Humane Society in Duxbury say she has a very sweet, pleasant personality. Mary sits in her room at the shelter just hoping someone will pass by her door. When she hears anyone approach, her ears perk up. Then she invites them in with her sweet, little meow. She is so happy when someone visits.

Mary is very affectionate, and she loves to be around people. She is definitely a girlie girl, and if a nice woman adopts her, she will be over the moon. Mary should be an only pet. She prefers to be the center of her beloved human’s world, and she prefers not to have other pets around who would be getting part of the attention she would otherwise have.

Mary likes to chase the laser light and tries to catch her mouse toy – she gets quite a workout from that, and coupled with her diet, she’s trying to lose a bit of her baby fat with help from her friends at Standish. If you’d like to meet Mary please call 781.834.4663 or visit StandishHumane.org.

Shannon_QAS

**UPDATE: Shannon has been adopted!!! Aug 12, 2019

Say hello to Shannon! Shannon is a gorgeous German Shepherd Dog (GSD) about 5 years old. She came to Quincy Animal Shelter in mid-February after her owner lost his home. Shannon had been with him since she was a small puppy so this has been a difficult transition for her. As is typical for GSD’s, she is cautious of new people until she gets to know them, but once she knows them she is as loyal as they come. Shannon is a sensitive girl who can be overwhelmed in the shelter. Shannon is on anxiety meds to help her here, but once in a stable home she hopefully will not need them. She was having some joint stiffness but is responding to meds. Shannon needs a cat free home. She is curious about dogs but needs slow introductions as she gets nervous with new dogs. Loud noises, like motorcycles, do scare her. Shannon initially was standoffish with the QAS volunteers, but over the past 5 months she has learned to trust them and now they take her on excursions to the beach and other fun activities. She is a joy of a dog. Shannon has had some training, listens well and is very well mannered. Shannon would thrive in a home with someone who understands the German Shepherd breed and also understands a dog who has had a major loss of her person. With time and love, Shannon will give it all back to her new person tenfold. Are you Shannon’s new best friend? * please email any questions to k9@quincyanimalshelter.org * For more photos visit QAS on Facebook!

Sophie

Have you ever been camping? Well I bet Sophie’s stories of being in the woods could beat yours! Sophie spent 6 long months in the woods, all alone, fighting to stay alive. After finally being trapped, this shy girl is adjusting to life indoors and is improving every day say our friends at the Scituate Animal Shelter

Sophie is a very sweet and shy Podengo mix who is on the young side. This adorable girl was found as a stray, and because of that we don’t have a history on her. Sophie was most likely a hunting dog so she is not very socialized.

Sophie would love to find a home with another dog! She is looking for a dog friend who is confident and can show her the world isn’t so scary.

Sophie would be best suited for an adult only home because she is very nervous and any fast movements will startle her. Sophie is also an escape artist, so she needs to always be on a leash, even in a fenced-in yard.

Sophie would love to find someone who can help her become more social and work on some basic training.

Meet this dog during Scituate Animal Shelter’s open hours (see below) or give them a call at 781-544-4533 ext. 301 for more information.

All dogs are fixed, vaccinated, dewormed, flea treated and heartworm/lyme tested before adoption, and receive microchips. Adoption fees vary — the Scituate Animal Shelter is currently running a ‘discount’ program—fees waived on pretty much every single pet in the shelter thanks to an amazing benefactor: Miranda Lambert!

 

Open hours: Sunday: 11:00am-2:30pm - Tuesday: 2:30pm-7:00pm - Wednesday: 2:30pm-7:00pm - Thursday: 2:30pm-7:00pm - Saturday: 11:00am-2:30pm

AmberThis is Amber [above]

AnnaThis is Anna [above]

 

It’s always a big decision to bring a new family member into the home, no doubt a really big ask when we’re talking about two new family members. But we’re hoping to help the Scituate Animal Shelter find a home for two best friends, Anna and Amber. These two senior beagles have spent most of their life living outside, and being in a home may be a bit of an adjustment for them. But they are ready for a loving home together!

Anna is an extremely sweet, but shy, senior beagle. Anna has mammary cancer, so she is looking for a special home who will love her for the time she has left with us. She would do best in a home with older children and adults. She also is working on her housebreaking, but since she has never lived indoors, she needs some more work. 

Amber is also very sweet, and like Anna, because they lived outside she is working on her housebreaking and being around people. Amber may be shy to start, but she does warms up and loves attention once she knows you. She is in good health and loves to go for walks. 

We know it may be hard, but the goal is to have both girls be adopted together. Can you help us spread the word about these lovely ladies?

Bella & Winston

Bella and Winston are the cutest brother and sister pair! They have always been together so our friends at Yorkies, Inc. are looking for a home that has room for two lovable sweet dogs. These two 11 year-old Yorkies have found themselves in need of a new loving home due to their owner going into a nursing home. Bella weighs around 6lbs and is super friendly and affectionate. She loves to be close by. Her brother Winston is 9 lbs and can be shy till he gets to know you, but once he does he is just as lovable. They both enjoy snuggling on the couch with you and sniffing around outside. They also love the car and do well riding in it.

They have been doing very well with house training using either a pee pad or going outside. Winston sometimes struggles to get up if he is lying on one specific side, and does have loose knees but gets around fine and recently has been running outside loving the nice weather. He is a little overweight and would benefit from losing some weight which would help with his knees. Neither have any major health issues but typical age-related ones, such as missing/no teeth and beginning to get hazy eyes but get around fine.

If you would be able to open your home and heart to these two sweeties please submit an application. https://www.yorkiesinc.com/

Cowboy1

***UPDATE 6/12 – Cowboy has been adopted! Yeehaw!!

Say hello to Cowboy! Cowboy was a lost kitty in the big city until he was rescued and brought to Standish Humane Society to find a forever home. Cowboy is handsome and friendly and he is a very, very active kitty. Our friends at Standish say he’s kind of dog-like how much he wants to be with his people and how social he is. He can be a bit grabby when petted. Not sure how Cowboy would do with kids or other pets but if you’d like to meet Cowboy send an email to StandishHumane@comcast.net. Visit www.standishhumane.org or call 781.834.4463.

Cupid  cupid2

Say hello to Cupid. Cupid is a 1 year old girl, she’s a Lab Retriever/Terrier/Pit Bull mix who needs a home with someone who has time and patience for training. She didn’t get much of that in her previous home, so she’s essentially a great big puppy who hasn’t learned all the ins and outs of manners. Cupid is incredibly smart and very motivated by treats as well as attention from people. She’s eager to please, but needs clear instructions on what’s expected of her. Being a very young and active dog, her new home should be ready to give her plenty of physical activity as well as mental stimulation. Cupid is going to take some patience, but she is SO worth it. She gives excellent hugs and has a great smile! At this point in her training, she needs to find a home without children or cats. She never learned the proper ways to interact with other dogs, and her attempts at play can be seen as rude – but an active, dog friendly dog may be a good friend for her! With someone who is willing to work with her in the beginning, she could very well learn to be happy to have another dog as a friend. Cupid resides with the team at the Animal Protection Center of Southeastern Massachusetts in Brockton. Check them out online: http://apcsm.org/ to learn more about Cupid and to see their open hours.

Elmo-264x250

Meet our Superher pet of the week, Elmo! Elmo is a tiny male Yorkie, weighing around 3lbs who is almost 12 years years old. Our friends at Yorkie’s Inc. say Elmo is in need of a new home due to his current family having small children and it is no longer the best situation for little Elmo as he does not care for all the commotion that comes with small kids in the house. While Elmo has been living with another Yorkie he would do best as an only dog so he can have all the attention and love. He loves to cuddle in your lap and snuggle under blankets. Once you win his trust you have a best friend! He has a super sweet personality with those he knows but can be nervous when meeting new people and with his small size we really cannot blame him, so a quiet home would be best.

Due to his small size and need for attention Elmo would love his new person to be home more than not. He will go to the bathroom outside and uses a pee pad. At times his current home will also put a belly band on him just incase of an accident.

Elmo only has one eye, but it doesn’t seem to bother him at all. He needed to have his other eye removed due to a dog attacking him, due to that Elmo can be nervous around other dogs, rightly so which is another reason we want Elmo to be an only dog. Please head on over to https://www.yorkiesinc.com/ to fill out an adoption application today!

Summer

Helllloooo Summer! 

Summer is a 1-year-old Foxhound who has had a rough start, but the tide has turned for her thanks to her new friends at Scituate Animal Shelter. Summer was kept outdoors for her entire life as a hunting dog. This sweet girl is heartworm positive, so she is looking for a loving home willing to support her during treatment. Scituate Animal Shelter will cover the financial cost and supplies, but she’ll need lots of TLC, quiet time, and limited play during treatment.

Despite her past, Summer is very gentle. She can be shy and aloof at times, but once she gets to know you, she loves to be petted. She is a true hunting dog who likes to follow her nose and chase small critters, so she can’t be off leash. Since she most likely has never lived in a home, she needs to work on housebreaking.

Summer would love to live with another dog in a home where she can got a lot of exercise once she is done with her heartworm treatment. She can live with adults and kids 13 and over. 

Visit this pup during Scituate Animal Shelter’s open hours (see below) or give them a call at 781-544-4533 ext. 301 for more information! There’s no need to make an appointment – just stop by to meet this dog or all of the others waiting for a homes. All dogs are fixed, vaccinated, dewormed, flea treated and heartworm/lyme tested before adoption. Adoption fees are $350 for a dog, $450 for a puppy, and $250 for a dog with special needs or senior over 10 years old.

He has a super sweet personality with those he knows but can be nervous when meeting new people and with his small size we really cannot blame him, so a quiet home would be best.

Due to his small size and need for attention Elmo would love his new person to be home more than not. He will go to the bathroom outside and uses a pee pad. At times his current home will also put a belly band on him just incase of an accident.

Elmo only has one eye, but it doesn’t seem to bother him at all. He needed to have his other eye removed due to a dog attacking him, due to that Elmo can be nervous around other dogs, rightly so which is another reason we want Elmo to be an only dog. Please head on over to https://www.yorkiesinc.com/ to fill out an adoption application today!

snow

Snow is a very handsome, social male cat who is about 12 years old. Our friends at the Scituate Animal Shelter say this friendly guy had been neglected for many years in his previous home, but he is feeling so much better now after having all his matted fur shaved off. Snow loves attention and really wants a nice, warm lap to curl up on!

Visit this kitty during our open hours (see below) or give us a call at 781-544-4533 ext. 301 for more information! There’s no need to make an appointment – just stop by to meet this cat or all of the others waiting for a home. All cats are fixed, vaccinated, combo tested, dewormed and flea treated at the time of adoption. Adoption fees have been waived for Snow, and for several other cats, thanks to an amazing and generous donor.

Maeve

Say hello to Maeve!

Our friends at Hull Seaside Animal Rescue say this girl is more than ready to get out of the shelter and into her forever home. She has had a bit of a rough go at life so far and is ready for some peace and quiet and some much needed R&R. Maeve has come so far since being at the shelter and she needs someone to take some time and sit with her and get to know her. She is ready for her perfect person to show her that she is safe, loved, and cared for. She is excited to get adopted and settle into home life where she can let her guard down and let her personality and softer side shine.

Maeve is a wonderful kitty, but she doesn’t do wonderfully in a shelter setting. This is fairly common as shelter life can sometimes be overwhelming for a kitty who is a bit unsure of their newfound surroundings. These cats are even more in need of a loving companion and home and they will not let you down. Maeve will be a wonderful companion and just needs love an patience, and isn’t that what we all need sometimes? You can learn more about Miss Maeve and meet her in person at Hull Seaside Animal Rescue’s Open Hours at the shelter on Monday evenings from 6:30PM-7:30PM and Saturday afternoons from 2:00PM-3:00 PM.

If these times don’t work for you, you can also call or email Adoption Coordinator, Judy at 781-534-4902 or jjfahey@verizon.net.

pet of the week

Meet Mazie!

Mazie is a wonderful and spunky Pit Bull mix who is very smart! Our friends at Scituate Animal Shelter tell us this active girl knows all her obedience commands and is working on not jumping up when she is excited. Mazie loves long walks and really enjoys a great game of fetch.

Mazie is good in the car and enjoys adventures to the beach or hikes in the woods. She likes other dogs and would love a playmate who can match her strength. She has also lived with a cat and they got along.

Mazie can be a little nervous in new situations, so it is important to socialize her slowly. She is easily won over with treats and sweet talk. Mazie is looking for a family with teenagers over the ager of 16 and adults.

Visit this pup during our open hours or give us a call at 781-544-4533 ext. 301 for more information. There’s no need to make an appointment – just stop by to meet her!

Buzz1

 

This week we are trying to help our friends at Standish Humane Society find a home for Buzz, the cat. Buzz is a grey and white Domestic Short Hair adult male cat who is super social. He will come right out when you enter his room and he likes to be petted. He loves his food! The only issue the team at Standish is having is that Buzz, with little or no warning, will occasionally give a swat if you are petting him and do not stop when he wants to stop. Buzz is not a biter, just a swatter on occasion. Buzz came from a terrible hoarding situation and he was so badly infested with fleas upon his arrival with numerous other cats that he had to be shaven down and treated medically.  It’s understandable why he has learned to be defensive but with gentle touch and patience we are hoping he will stop swatting at the hand that feeds! Want to meet Buzz? Give a call 781-834-4663 or send a note to our friends at Standish Humane Society in Duxbury to set up time to meet Buzz! standishhumane@comcast.net

Summer

Are you searching for summer? Here she is!

Summer is a small young female Yorkie who is 2 years old and weighs almost 4lbs. Summer was surrendered to our friends at Yorkies Inc. by a show breeder because she is too small to show and her breeder knew Yorkies Inc would find her the perfect home. Once comfortable Summer is a feisty little girl who loves to run and play with toys. She also is a cuddler and will give gentle kisses. She enjoys being with the other Yorkies in her foster home and would love another small playmate. She is used to going outside in a fenced in yard and having access to a pee pad. Summer has been fully vetted including a dental and has no known health issues. If interested in being considered for Summer please submit an application at www.yorkiesinc.com

Charlie

Did you know the Scituate Animal Shelter has rabbits and hamsters looking for forever homes? And they have cuties like Charlie who is a really friendly and cute (female) guinea pig. She is just a year old and likes to be handled.  Did you also know you can foster an animal so you can experience what it is like to adopt? It can be a great way to try out if a pet like Charlie is a good fit for the family.

The Scituate Animals Shelter recommends these small furry friends be kept in a baby-gated area of a kitchen or laundry room, for instance, instead of in a small cage.  And definitely inside only! For more information, or to get in touch with the Scituate Animal Shelter, visit their website: https://scituateanimalshelter.org/

Quincy petsIt’s February, which means it’s the month of love and all things adorable ❤. What’s better than 1 ridiculously cute dog…2 ridiculously cute dogs!!!  Meet Bubba & Littles! 

Bubba is about a year old and is a fawn colored American Staffordshire Terrier mix. Littles is about 2yrs old and is a dark brown and white bulldog mix. This precious duo is very bonded so our friends at Quincy Animal Shelter are looking for a home that is able to welcome both of them into the family.  The team in Quincy have learned during their time with Bubba that he has very little, if any hearing, so they are working on hand signals with him and he is doing well.

These dogs love to play but also love their beds and snuggling up with a good bone to chew. They are affectionate and just want to be with their people and one another. They are quite strong on the leash so continued basic training is very important.  If you are interested in meeting this sweet pair please come visit the shelter during adoption hours and please email any questions to k9@quincyanimalshelter.org.

Andrea and Lawrence

Andrea (on the left) and Lawrence (on the right) are two of four dogs that were found tied up outside in the cold. They are recovering from ear and skin infections and were extremely emaciated when they arrived at the Scituate Animal Shelter. They are all incredibly social with people and dogs. The team at Scituate Animal Shelter are looking to place them in homes with families that can give them all a good deal of exercise and basic training.

Andrea is a sweet, young girl who is very spunky and athletic. She would make a great companion for someone who runs or can teach her agility or any dog sport. Although she is social with other dogs, she does not want play so she needs a home with a calm older dog or to be the only pet. Lawrence is a sweet, young boy who needs to work on housebreaking. He would prefer a quieter home, since he is a little fearful of loud noises. 

Visit Andrea or Lawrence during the shelter’s open hours or give them a call at 781-544-4533 ext. 301 for more information. There’s no need to make an appointment – just stop by to meet this dog or all of the others waiting for a home. 

Open hours:
Sunday: 11:00am-2:30pm
Monday: Closed
Tuesday: 2:30pm-7:00pm
Wednesday: 2:30pm-7:00pm
Thursday: 2:30pm-7:00pm
Friday: Closed
Saturday: 11:00am-2:30pm
Closed all federal holidays

All dogs are fixed, vaccinated, dewormed, flea-treated, and Lyme/Heartworm tested.

**UPDATE Jan 30 – Theodore has been adopted!

Meet Theodore!

This cat is an all around super guy – friendly, never aggressive, likes other cats and dogs. His only issue is he is a “full figured” guy and people keep being turned away by that say our friends at Standish Humane Society in Duxbury. He came in weighing 18 pounds and is already down to 16 pounds just from not overfeeding him. He likes to play, loves to be petted and is like a cat dog. He waits at the door for humans to enter his room and he follows them around! Theodore is 6 years old and is black and white in color and can’t wait to be a part of your family. Check in with our friends at standishhumane.org for information about meeting and adopting Theodore! http://standishhumane.org/

Meet Henny- this sweet girl is only 1 year old but has already been bounced around a lot. She is beautiful and friendly and a little bundle of energy. Our friends at the Milton Animal League Animal Shelter are hoping to find Henny her permanent new home. We’re told Henny likes dogs, cats and children over 5 years old. Henny does have undiagnosed allergies so is on a special diet and may need occasional medication to keep her feeling well. Henny is ready to settle down in a home and stay there! If you would like to meet this sweet dog call the Milton Animal Shelter at (617)698-0413 to set up an appointment. Also check out the super cute vidoe of Henny in the comments of her pic on Facebook! https://www.facebook.com/miltonanimalleague/

Pearl

Say hello to Pearl! Pearl is a petite 13+ year old gray and cream tabby who enjoys human attention, on her own terms, yes; but that just adds to her charm. She is an independent girl with a wonderful spirit. Pearl is a volunteer favorite at the Hull Seaside Animal Rescue and Pearl greets all the volunteers at the door and follows them around as they do their work in the shelter. 

Pearl would make a great “roommate” and sidekick. Even though she can be a bit grumpy at times (aren’t we all), she will greet you at the door, follow you around when she’s not napping, provide love, and be a loyal friend. She is looking for a second chance at a home of her own where she can live out her wonderful golden years like the princess she knows she is. 

She will be a perfect fit for someone who would like a buddy to keep them company but who isn’t necessarily looking for a bonafide lap cat. Pearl is lovable, curious, playful and sassy and enjoys petting on her own terms! Pearl would prefer a home without other cats, dogs and children.

Her favorite hobbies include napping, following her people around, finding anything and everything to curl up on and lounge, being brushed when she’s in the mood, and LASER LIGHTS (she LOVES them and she chases that laser light around like she’s a kitten). 

Pearl is a special girl who is sure to bring a little light into your home. Pearl needs thyroid medication and her condition is easily managed by adding a few drops of medication to her food each day. If you are interested in adopting, or perhaps fostering, Pearl, you can learn more about her at Hull Seaside Animal Rescue’s open hours on Monday evenings from 6:30 p.m. – 7:30 p.m. and Saturday afternoons from 2:00 – 3:00 p.m. You can also call or email Adoption Coordinator Judy at 781-534-4902 or jjfahey@verizon.net for more information!
