We Have Been Waiting
While many animals find their adoptive home right away, some wonderful cats, dogs, and small animals have been waiting to find a home for a long time.  Perhaps you are the family they have been waiting for. Come in to the adoption center today and meet these animals who have been waiting for you! Click here for pictures and stories of animals who have been waiting. 

Our Lemonade Stand!
Check out a new great opportunity for kids to help animals! You don't have to be an adult to help animals! Even the youngest members of our community can take action for homeless animals.  The Boston MSPCA's Lemonade/Apple Cider Stand is a great opportunity for kids to host a fundraiser. The stand can be set up here at the Adoption Center any Saturday or Sunday from 11-4pm, and staffed by children of all ages (accompanied by a parent or guardian).  It’s also designed to be portable, so can be taken to off site events, schools, or even your own neighborhood.

Barn Cat Program
If you have a barn or stable, you can help save a cat! Although the majority of cats can easily live as indoor house pets, sometimes we have cats whose only alternative is to live as a barn cat. Adopting a barn cat can help you control a rodent population in your barn, and will provide companionship for you and your other barn animals.

Help Animals in Need of Emergency Medical Care
Every day, animals come to the MSPCA who need emergency treatment. These are animals who were hit by cars, subjects of animal abuse, or surrendered by owners who couldn't afford the medical care they needed. Learn more about the MSPCA's Spikes Fund, which helps us care for animals in need of emergency medical care.
