Fundraisers and Events

To continue our mission of rescuing more animals, we are always planning fundraising and educational events. The Quincy Animal Shelter is a No-Kill, Volunteer-run, Non-Profit Organization, so all donations go toward animal care, education, and fundraising. Medical care, including spay/neuter surgery and vaccinations, is by far our greatest expense. Please check this page frequently for event updates! THANK YOU!

If you would like to help organize these or any other fundraising events to benefit the Quincy Animal Shelter, please contact our Fundraising Chair by calling 617-376-1349.
