Kids for a Cause
Many young community members have made a difference in the lives of homeless animals by supporting the MSPCA through their fundraising - you, too, can become a Kid for a Cause!

We Have Been Waiting

While we have many animals find their adoptive home right away, some wonderful cats, dogs, and small animals have been waiting to find a home since August! Perhaps you are the family they have been waiting for so long? Please 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.

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.

Pit Pals Program
While the number of homeless dogs in Massachusetts continues to decline, the number of stray and surrendered Pit Bulls has remained high. The MSPCA’s four Adoption Centers take in more Pit Bulls than any other type of dog. We are committed to helping Pit Bulls through programs specifically designed to create positive change for these misrepresented dogs. Click here to learn more about Pit Bulls and the innovative programs in place at the MSPCA.

Little Bookworm Club
The Boston Adoption Center hosts story time for our youngest animal lovers every Wednesday at 10:45. Click here to learn more about the Little Bookworm Club!
