We are deeply committed to the health and well being of every pet, not just the pets in our care. That is why we work with local shelters to help lost and abandoned animals in our community find new homes.
It isn't just our hospital. The entire family of VCA Animal Hospitals works with shelters and humane societies across the United States to promote successful pet adoptions.
Part of that work is helping you prepare for adopting a pet, because we believe that an informed owner is more likely to adopt the right pet and less likely to return the animal to the shelter. Please feel free to call or visit us for educational information and medical resources that will help you understand the ups and downs of pet adoption.
When you're ready to adopt, please consider adopting an animal from one of the shelters listed below. Together we can make sure your adopted pet has a long, healthy, and happy life.
Quincy Animal Shelter
100% volunteer-run organization established in 1999, Q.A.S. is a "no kill" shelter making every effort to find the right home for each animal. VCA has had a long standing relationship with Q.A.S. and builds upon that relationship daily by the continuous contact with the Medical Manager and staff.
Sterling Animal Shelter
Located in Sterling, MA, some of our clients have travelled over 30 miles to adopt a pet from Sterling Shelter. VCA has had a great relationship with Sterling Shelter and it gets better every year. Sterling is a big supporter of VCA and does its best to find every pet a home
