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 Everyone, it’s Grover here. This is my third and final week as the “Featured Cat”. I thought for sure I would have found a home by now but no one has come to see me. After this week some other lucky cat will take my place and hopefully find a home.
I’m a great guy and I’m very handsome. I must admit that I haven’t been showing all that well at the shelter. Just yesterday there were at least 8 people in my room at the shelter looking at all the cats and not one person came over to pet me. Feeling a little on the sad side, I just watched as they gave all the other cats attention. One person did notice me and said something like “Oh my . . . I didn’t even see you there” and walked away.
I was really hoping that I would have a “Home for the Holidays”. I’m not sure what that means but everyone keeps telling me that I’ll be home for the holidays. In all honesty, if I had a home, every day would be a holiday for me. I haven’t completely given up on my wish, I know we have a few weeks left to Christmas.
As you can see from my video, I’m a playful guy. When I’m not playing I enjoy watching all the wildlife outdoors. If you come see ME I’ll show you how great I am and how great I’ll be in your home. I’m what they call a great “companion” cat. I don’t require a lot of attention so you can leave me home all day while you go to work and not feel guilty. When you get home I’ll sit next to you and we can watch TV or read a book.
Do you room in your heart and home for a great guy that just needs a second chance to show you how great he is? I would be happy to share a home with a dog or another cat. I just want a forever home where I will be loved and where I can love you unconditionally.
Thanks for taking the time to read my story.
