MSPCA Animal Care & Adoption Centers

The MSPCA Animal Care and Adoption Centers care for and adopt out thousands of homeless and unwanted animals each year. We shelter a wide variety of purebred and mixed-breed dogs and cats, as well as rabbits, guinea pigs, birds, and many other small animals. Our Nevins Farm & Equine Center is a unique center for horses and other farm animals, including goats, cows, sheep, pigs, chickens, geese, and ducks. 

We also go beyond sheltering, striving to be our communities' best resource for animal-related information and assistance. We provide advice on animal behavior and training, answer questions on dealing with wildlife, and educate the public about responsible pet ownership and pet-population control.
