Welcome to Standish Humane Society
Standish Humane Society is a non-profit, tax-exempt organization founded in 1969 dedicated to the care of homeless and needy animals in southeastern Massachusetts. We operate a no-kill shelter and adoption center for cats in Duxbury, MA and a reduced-cost Spay and Neuter Program for dogs and cats. We adopt out an average of 345 cats and kittens annually. Standish Humane is dependent on charitable donations to accomplish our missions.
