The Quincy Animal Shelter is a 100% 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 1,600 cats and more than 500 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. This means we exercise the same ethical and humane treatment of animals in our 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 (currently more than 90), an active and dedicated management, and a lot of money. Currently we need to raise over $90,000 (ninety thousand dollars) every year in order to keep doing what we do to help the dogs and cats of Quincy. Please visit our Volunteer and Wish List pages to find out about ways you can help.
Our 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. We have dreams of a larger facility and a larger budget in the near future...
