We adopted Monty (formerly known as Almond) back in October 2013. As
soon as my husband and I saw her at the shelter, we fell in love and
applied for her right away. I knew then and there that this was the cat
for us. I had never had a pet before, and so I was very excited. We
adopted her at 5 months - she was still a kitten at the time, but she's
grown since then. Monty has quite the personality, and loves to watch
birds from our living room. She's also very vocal, eats and drinks well,
and is just a happy go lucky kitty cat. My favorite time of day is when
I come home. She stretches out before me, scratches on her scratching
post, and then rolls over at my feet so I can pick her up and pet her.
Josh and I love her, and completes our little family. Should we decide
to adopt again, we will most likely come back here!

My sister Clare adopted Moxie from Quincy Animal Shelter in (or around)
2002 I believe. She went in for a cat and...well...Moxie had her at
"Hello." :-) They shared a wonderful life together until my sister
Clare died from Cancer at age 52 on January 20, 2012.
I have moved into my sister's home (as I did not want to upset Moxie's
life any further) and WE have been taking care of EACH OTHER every day
since her death. Moxie, was, and still is, the greatest blessing of my
life. Although she is walking with stiff geriatric joints (assisted by
lots of medication), she still at age 14 manages to play quietly at
night on her bed with her "baby bear," do "hall flips" when we go to go
outside, and the old girl still flirts with every man in the condominium
complex! I love her with ALL OF MY HEART, and my only solace when she
ever decides to leave me, will be to know that she is only leaving me to
go and be with Clare again...and that I will be with them both again
These attached photos are several years old when Mox was in her
prime...but I don't ever want her to be forgotten as a HUGE SUCCESS
STORY of the Quincy Animal Shelter. When Clare passed away, in lieu of
flowers, she requested that donations please be made in her name.
Please continue to donate to this wonderful shelter and please RESCUE an
animal in need...for they will give you the unconditional love we all
seek in this world and can never find anywhere else.
Thank you, Suzy Neuner
QAS, As you can see, Yoda had a wonderful Christmas! We are hoping that
his first family sees this picture and knows how much he is loved by
his adopted family.
Surrendering a great pup like Yoda was probably very difficult, but
sometimes our feelings have to be put second in order that the dog can
have a good forever home. Yoda's first family must have loved him
enough to do just that. He is a great pup! After about 19 months, Yoda
is doing very well. He had some trouble with house training, but now
very rarely makes a mistake. He has adjusted to Fantasia and Amber, the
other Crested in the family and has the run of the house and the fenced
Santa spoiled him with a "Yoda" bed which he enjoys. Dressed in his
"Yoda" sweat suit and accompanied by his "Yoda" squeak toy, he is living
a wonderful life and his first family should know, he is happy in his
Thank you QAS and Yoda's first family for a selfless decision to let him find a forever family. The Smith Family, Weymouth, MA
Just wanted to send a short note of thanks to all of you at the shelter
for all that you do and for allowing us to take Bella home. It has been
about four months since "Bella" has found her new home here with us and
we could not be happier! She fits in to our family, children, grand
kids and all, like she has always been a part of us. She has put on a
few pounds, as the vet said she was a bit underweight at the time, and
is healthy and happy.
She has found her favorite nap chair and favorite window to watch the
neighborhood activities. Bella loves to take walks and she does at least
three times a day. She has a quick step and proud stance, as she walks.
Bella probably loves sitting in your lap, just as much as her walks.
Definitely a people person, she may bark at the door bell, but always
wags her tail at anyone who walks through the door. We have a dog
friendly neighborhood and Bella has won the hearts of many of our dog
owner's and their pets. So thank you again for all your dedication!
With much appreciation, The McLean Family (here is a photo of our granddaughter and Bella)
