The Scituate Animal Shelter is a municipal facility under the supervision of Scituate Animal Control, a division of the Scituate Police Department. They take in animals from Scituate and Foster and provide care until we can find good homes for them. They also socialize all cats and dogs who need such work in order to be ready for life in a home and with a family. The shelter staff and the volunteers will go to great lengths to find homes for all animals that we have at the shelter.
