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
JUBILEE-OUR FIRST TECHIE CAT
Hi, I am Jubilee and I am just two years young. As you can see from my picture I am a gorgeous calico girl. I am told that I have a personality that exceeds my good looks.
I was found as a stray and brought to a shelter. That shelter was already crowded so they called Standish and asked if they could take me. I’ve been here for almost three months now and it’s time for me to find my forever home.
I love people! I am playful and cuddly. I am also a lap cat, which I am told can be an important feature. Another important thing to note is that I like children and I get along just fine with other cats. My multiple color combination will also match just about any décor in your home.
Oh, one more thing . . . I found out the other day that I can play computer games. Yes, really! A volunteer had a device called an “IPAD” and she put some sort of silly cat game on it and I loved it. You can see me playing it on my video. Of course, I am just as happy playing with regular cat toys like mice and balls and laser lights.
My needs in a forever home are modest. I am a very low-key kind of girl and will be happy with nothing more than a loving human and a paper ball.
Come see me this week. I promise to be a great addition to your family and household.
P.S. Good News for Sammy, our featured cat for the last 3 weeks! He was adopted June 18.

They would love to find a home together.
Some find homes before they get to PetSmart so we can't always know when they will be here.
