Welcome to Standish Humane Society
We are a non-profit, tax-exempt organization of volunteers founded in 1969 dedicated to the care and placement of stray and abandoned pets in southeastern Massachusetts. We operate a no-kill shelter and adoption center in Duxbury, MA and an Adoption Center in the PetSmart store in Braintree, MA. Through an active placement and reduced cost spay-neuter program, Standish works to reduce the critical pet overpopulation problem. Standish Humane is dependent on charitable donations to provide for the care of cats and kittens awaiting adoption. We find Forever Homes for more than 350 cats and kittens annually.
Meet our Featured Cat of the Week
Hi, I’m JoJo . . . the best darn cat in the shelter (at least that what everyone says). It’s hard to believe that I’ve been at Standish since Christmas. Everyone thought that I would be scooped up within weeks of arriving here.
Everyone says that I’m the PURRFECT cat. I’m just about a year old and in addition to being very affectionate, I love to romp and play with other cats. I chase balls, play with the mouse on a string toy, and run through the cat tunnel, but my favorite thing is chasing a laser light. When I’m done playing, I like to settle into a lap for a petting session and nuzzle into the crook of your elbow. I am a very sweet, lovable, and affectionate boy.
I had a great home before coming to Standish. My two feline nephews and I ended up here because our family went through a home foreclosure. My feline companions found a home quickly (I’m so happy for them) but I was left behind with all new cats and surroundings. I was very traumatized at first by losing my loving home and my feline buddies, but soon I was making new friends and back to my normal self again.
I would make a perfect playmate for another playful cat, and I get along great with children. What more could you ask for? I would probably have lots of fun with a dog too. Please consider taking me home. I promise to give you tons of love and hours of entertainment.
