📣 Adorable puppy alert

Ruby is a perfect at pie little 8-week-old pittie lady. A true fighter, Ruby had a rough from the very beginning. Ruby was rejected by her mother and the only surviving puppy from a litter of eight. It is evident from her s***ky spirit and playful nature she is a strong pup.

Since Ruby was raised by a human mom and not a dog mom, we are hoping to find her a home with a young, confident canine who can teach Ruby how to dog. It is hard for these puppies who don't have other puppies around, they don't learn the right social cues.

Ruby is in her prime "I'm gonna bite everything and eat your flesh" stage. While friendly with all, she will likely torment little kids and would be better suited for older children in the home who can tolerate those razor puppy teeth.

This tiny pup is not housebroke but working really hard. She is also working on crate training. Ruby loves her people and cuddling!

The only stipulation in this adoption is that Ruby's new family sends lots of updates. Ruby landed in the most amazing foster home who bottle fed her all hours of the night and learned how to care for a neonatal baby puppy.

If you're looking for a sweet but sassy puppy, this is your gal! Email [email protected] to apply for this gem of a pup!

There are SO many guinea pigs that need homes and unfortunately, more are dumped or surrendered every day. Boston recently took a step to help these social critters by adding them to the list of animals pet stores can no longer sell: https://www.boston.com/news/local-news/2023/12/06/boston-city-council-ban-guinea-pig-sales-pet-shops/

We happen to have a wonderful pair of guinea pigs at the shelter looking for their new family. Learn more about Luna and Nelly here: https://scituateanimalshelter.org/adoptable-pets

Animal shelters have been overwhelmed with guinea pigs, many of which came from large out-of-state breeders and were sold in pet shops.

Meet Maya!

Maya is the definition sugar, spice and everything nice. This 2-year-old chihuahua is what you think of when you think of little dogs, an insecure little lady who bonds quickly with her person but isn't afraid to use her teeth to scare others away.

Maya is about 9 lbs of s***k and love. She is playful and loves to cuddle, once she knows and trusts you. Once you're her best friend she will demand to sleep in your bed and cuddle.

Maya is currently in a foster home with an older chihuahua and cats. She is indifferent to other animals and could coexist with calm canines in the home or cats. She would not be great with a playful pup who is always trying to play.

Since we have seen the super sassy side, we will not be placing Maya in a home with children or a home with children visitors. She needs a quiet place to call her own and adults who understand it will take time and patience to win her over. Maya prefers woman but is fine with men who understand her boundaries.

Despite her little personality quirks, Maya is a loving and sweet. Chihuahua lovers will totally understand her and adore the fact she will bond with you forever. Email [email protected] to apply!

Dorothy is the sweetest little mama cat we've had in a long time. This affectionate, chatty little lady is about 2-years-old. We think that Dorothy will fit into most homes as she is a really great feline!

Her two adorable kittens are also looking for homes! Lion (female) and Scarecrow (male) are a bit on the shy side but gentle, kind kittens. They are about 3-months-old.

This whole crew does not need to be adopted together! We are just looking for loving homes for each. Email [email protected] to add one of these cuties to your family!

Lucy is a tiny little lady who is looking for a fun loving home to call her own. She is just about 3-months-old and the last of her litter who has not been adopted.

Lucy will fit into almost any home! She loves other cats and fine with dogs. She loves children too!

Meet Wendy!

Wendy is 22 lbs of absolute perfection. Don't ask what breed she is, our answer will be "no clue". What we do know is she is a bubbly, s***ky princess looking for someone to love her.

Wendy exudes joy. She loves tennis balls and pets, loving being near her person. She is guessed to be around a year old and a high energy little lady. Wendy will love adventures and romping around the beach with her new family, being the type of dog you can bring to soccer games and have around humans of all ages.

Wendy is very friendly with other dogs, greeting all canines with a wagging tail. She will likely make a good companion to another high energy pup in the home. We are unsure how she would be with cats.

This petite ball of love is going to be an excellent companion. Email [email protected] to apply!

UPDATE! We will be sending out applications to everyone who emailed before 8:15 pm. Due to popularity we cannot take more after that. Lucky Marty!

Meet Marty!

Marty is your classic untrained golden boy. This goofy 1-year-old pup is looking for a home to offer him structure and training so that he can be the best boy he can be.

Marty previously lived with other dog and likes to run and play with dogs his size and energy level. He doesn't love to share his toys and is a bit rude when it comes to taking toys from other dogs. He likes it known all toys are Marty toys!

Since Marty is an untrained goofball, we are looking for a home with teens and adults, sturdy humans who can help with his continued training.

Given he is young, he is very high energy and not a couch potato. He wants opportunities for adventures and time outside! He loves to run zoomies and explore new places.

Marty is going to be the best friend for someone looking for a loyal companion! Email [email protected] to apply!

Scituate Missing Cat!

From his mom: "Vinny is still missing from the harbor area, since the summer. Hoping for a miracle and maybe someone took him in (as they have before) thinking he was a stray. He frequented Beal Place and the condos at the corner of Beal & Front."

Meet Star!

Star is a sweet fellow who is about a year old. This handsome cat is is a bit shy to start but overall a very nice cat.

Star will likely be fine with other cats around. He may too shy for rambunctious dogs but likely ok with a calm pup in the house.

Star is a really good guy! Email [email protected] to apply!

Meet James!

James is a really good guy. This big cat loves to strut around and get attention from people. James is guessed to be about 7-years-old.

James is FIV+. He does not seem like a fighter, but we don't have a history of him with other cats. James will likely be fine with a dog in the home as his outgoing personality will put him in charge. James also has kidney disease and will require a special diet (we can send you home with a good supply of this).

Cats with FIV and kidney disease can live long and happy lives. James is currently healthy and happy!

This guy will make a great cat for most! Email [email protected] to apply!

Salem and Nicholas are 1 1/2 year old brothers looking for a home together!

Salem is outgoing and fun, loving everyone he meets!

Meet Tyler!

Tyler is a sweet as pie senior guy who is about 10 years old. He is friendly with all, making him a good fit for most homes!

Tyler has some vision loss in one eye and will be getting a consult with an ophthalmologist. He gets around well, using that beagle nose to sniff out the way! Tyler will be getting a much-needed dental through the shelter.

Tyler is not a super nosey beagle, he does bark and bay when excited to see new friends! Tyler is friendly with other dogs too.

This guy loves a good walk and romp in the yard but also loves naps and curling up on his cozy bed.

Tyler is a going to make a true beagle lover very happy! Email [email protected] to apply!

The 5th graders at South Elementary in Hingham raised close to $700 for the animals of SAS. What a truly outstanding and successful effort by these students and the teachers and parents who supported them. Learning that community funding is essential for SAS (and all non profits) to continue to carry out our mission-based work is an important and honorable lesson at an early age. We are INCREDIBLY grateful. Many animals will be helped because of this and we hope these students are proud of themselves! Thank you!

Ready for THE staff and volunteer favorite?! This lady has won us over and we can't wait to see her loving life in her new home.

Phoebe is a sweet as pie beagle ready for a new lease on life! This 8-year-old lady has been waiting for the all clear for a while to find a new home and it is finally her time!

Phoebe is excellent with everyone she meets. She loves other dogs and children alike, making her a great family pet. Phoebe has been on a weight loss journey here and is down 9 pounds! She has a ways to go. We have seen such an improvement in Phoebe's energy and s***k.

Phoebe is hypothyroid. She requires daily medication and will need regular vet visits to ensure she stays on the proper dose. This coupled with regular exercise and diet is really helping Phoebe and her old lady joints.

This beagle lady is overall quiet but does have a beagle bark when she is excited!

This chunky lady is such a good girl!

A duo of the sweetest guinea pigs ever? We've got 'em!

Luna and Nelly are almost 5-year-old guinea pigs looking for a home for their senior years. These ladies are super sweet and very chatty.

Nelly, the brown pig, is blind in one eye. This lady still gets around great.

These pigs would love a large space to call their own. They are big fans of veggies!

If you're interested in adopting, please email a photo of where you intend to keep the guinea pig to [email protected]

Weymouth resident and SAS transport and dog volunteer Kellie Forde will do a lot for our pets...including plunging into the icy Atlantic Ocean on February 10, 2024!

Kellie, who started volunteering with SAS in 2017, is doing the plunge in advance of Valentine's Day not just because she loves our animals: she also seeks to raise $7500 for our pets, particularly for dogs who come to us with special behavioral needs.

Kellie wants to make sure that we always have the funds on hand to give these dogs the (expensive) extra training and care they will need to do well in their new homes. Will you help her?

Meet Sugar Cookie!

Sugar Cookie is just about as sweet as her name. This girl is a tiny cat, only about 6 lbs. She is guessed to be about 2-years-old.

While Sugar Cookie is the sweetest lady, she is incredibly shy. She prefers to find a place to hide and hunker down but when you pet her and hold her is all purrs and leans right in.

Sugar Cookie needs a very quiet and patient home. She is an absolute love but needs someone to help her come out of her shell. She will likely do fine with another cat in the home.

While not a lap cat, this lovely lady is just a doll once she warms up.
