On November 19, 2022 a family lost their dog in Lawrence, MA. Shortly after a good Samaritan found a dog and brought him to Animal Control where he was lovingly named Eeyore for his calm, quiet and reflective personality. He was quickly a volunteer favorite. Since there were medical issues to be addressed we posted him needing a foster. Lucky for him a Missing Dogs Massachusetts volunteer, Jenny S., saw our posting and called the family in Lawrence to see if our Eeyore was their Haze. Close to a month later, Haze and his family had a beautiful reunion!

To continue our mission of rescuing more animals, we are always planning fundraising and educational events. Quincy Animal Shelter is a Volunteer-run, Non-Profit Organization, so all donations go toward animal care, education, and fundraising. Medical care, including spay/neuter surgery and vaccinations, is by far our greatest expense. Please check this page frequently for event updates! THANK YOU!
