Our shelter recently helped to adopt several shy cats that were living in a “hoarding situation.”  Shy cats can make wonderful companions but need a special home that is willing to give them patience, time, space, socialization and extra love.  Shy cats often do better in a home with other cats.  They may not do well in a home with young children.  They respond to a quiet and consistent environment.  To develop a relationship with this type of cat is an extremely rewarding experience.  When they learn to trust; they become very attached to their “humans.”  We thank the people who adopted several of these shy cats from our shelter.  We want to share their stories and pictures in “New Beginnings” “Extra Special Adoptions” 

If you interested in adopting one of our kittens or cats; please complete an Adoption Application online.  One of our volunteers will call you as soon as we receive your application.

Cat Adoption in Spencer

‘Gratitude is something none of us can give too much.’

PAL is celebrating its 25th anniversary. 

We are proud of the fact that we have helped several thousand cats(and a few hundred dogs in our earlier days) find loving homes. This could not have been accomplished without the ongoing support of our volunteers and  donors.  Another key factor to the continued success of the shelter is the support from several local veterinary clinics – VCA Wickaboag Animal Hospital, Sturbridge Veterinary Clinic, Hubbardston Veterinary Clinic and Becker Veterinary Clinic. Our animals receive competent and compassionate veterinary care. These clinics also support us financially with monetary donations and fund raisers. And last but not least – thanks to all the people who have adopted one of the PAL cats or dogs. Our mission is accomplished when a cat is placed in a carrier and heads out the door to his/her new home. animal adoption ma cat adoption in Spencer
