Welcome to the Friends of Scituate Animal Shelter

Formed in 2001, The Friends of the Scituate Animal Shelter is an all-volunteer organization which is governed by a board of directors. Many of its members were people who volunteered at the Shelter on an individual basis for years. The organization’s founders felt that as a group they would be more effective in fundraising efforts and, as a result, be better able to improve the lives of the animals at the Shelter. In March 2002, the organization was granted 501 (c) (3) status by the Internal Revenue Service.

Our Mission

To improve the lives of the animals at the Scituate Animal Shelter and to assist animal welfare groups to care for animals in a humane and compassionate manner.

We allow for cats and dogs to socialize, help finance their medical treatments, and assist in the screening of potential pet adopters to maximize the probability of a good match between pets and their new homes.
