Until we can visit the shelter in person again, we'll be hosting a virtual kitten shower. With the warm weather we had this winter, kitten season is here earlier and stronger than ever. Our kittens are in desperate need of wet food. Any help is appreciated!

Please consider something from our registry, gift cards or donate to the shelter.

Thank you!

Standish Success Story: Moon Shadow

Moon Shadow was being fed on a farm in Plymouth until the person called Standish Humane for some assistance. She was trapped and spayed, in anticipation of being returned to the farm life but when we brought her back to the farm and opened the cat carrier she would not leave. She stayed huddled inside the opened carrier for over a half hour. She had decided she liked being an indoor kitty. She was then taken back to a foster home where she allowed petting and playing but all the while in the confines of her crate. She purred when she got scratched just above her tail and loved to chase strings. She was not aggressive at all but still very shy.


Moon Shadow was promptly adopted by a very seasoned cat experienced family who fell in love with this baby girl. Moon Shadow actually surprised even them by coming up on their laps and playing in such a short time. They report "Moon Shadow is doing great.  Super friendly, luv bug and very playful too. Thank you for saving her and for giving us a chance with her." The pictures are of MS days after being adopted. It's incredible what a little bit of love and stability will do.
