Standish Humane Society is a non-profit, tax-exempt organization founded in 1969 dedicated to the care of homeless and needy animals in southeastern Massachusetts. We operate a no-kill shelter and adoption center for cats in Duxbury, MA and a reduced-cost Spay and Neuter Program for dogs and cats. We adopt out an average of 345 cats and kittens annually. Standish Humane is dependent on charitable donations to accomplish our missions.

Meet our Featured Cat of the Week
I'm Pancake, a three year old boy cat with the sweetest disposition
imaginable. I may seem a little shy when
I first meet you, but that's because I like to take time to get to know
you. I have beautiful medium length
snowy white fur with a coal black tail, black ears, and a little black heart on
my nose. I have unusual markings that the volunteers say are very striking.
personality is very laid back. I love people, and I get along great with the
cats in my room at the shelter. I'm a
gentle cat who likes to be petted. I also like to play, just not roughly. I like it when the volunteers play with me
with the laser light or the mouse toy.
volunteers have said that there are a whole stack of reasons for anyone to
adopt this Pancake. Here are just a few
that I've heard:
I am beautiful with unusual markings.
I don't have to be an only pet.
I make the cutest cooing noise when I am petted, and I am always available for
hugs and enjoy all the attention given to me.
I am good at quietly entertaining myself when people aren't around.
5. I am very gentle and very sweet, and I like
to chill out just about the time my human companions do.
you need one more reason to adopt a beautiful cat named Pancake, I'll warm your
winter mornings with my sweet personality and get your day off to a great
start. I would be forever grateful for a
All Paws Rescue was a wonderful rescue and adoption organization operated in Hingham by Margot Quadros. When All Paws decided to cease operation in 2014, Standish assisted Margot by taking her remaining shelter cats into our Holmes House for adoption. Margot was very grateful and has since provided funds to support our mission. Margot visited Holmes House yesterday with her latest generous donation of over $8,600! Margot told us that she couldn’t think of another humane organization that was more deserving of support and said ‘Standish does an extraordinary job in helping the animals!’ Many thanks to Margot and please know that Standish will use the funds to make the world a better place for the animals.
