Mama:

​​​Cat • Senior • Domestic Short Hair • Female • Small


​​Meet Mama! Mama is a former stray/semi feral cat that we have known for roughly 6 years. She was a former colony cat at one of our feeding stations in Dorchester where we feed daily. Mama is called Mama because when we first came across her she had a tiny black kitten that followed her everywhere she went. Her kitten was taken in by the Animal Rescue League of Boston back in 2012. and found a home then. In April of 2017 we realized Mama was drastically losing weight, despite having a ravenous appetite. We took her in and sure enough she is diabetic. Since then her diabetes has been regulated and she is on insulin injections twice daily. She has adjusted to life indoors well but doesn't enjoy the company of dogs and most cats. She is spayed, microchipped, vaccinated felv/fiv negative and estimated to be roughly 7-8 years old, a young senior. Mama has been in our rescue for an entire year and has made tremendous strides. She has allowed a lot of handling which is required to give her insulin injections twice daily. She would still like to be an only pet but would be sure to thank you if you gave her a chance at being your one and only!

Pumpkin:

Dog • Adult • Chow Chow • Female • Medium


Hi Chow savvy friends, my name is Pumpkin and I am looking for a patient home to give me the time I need to love them. I used to live in Boston and then these nice ladies at Big Hair took me in. I arrived fairly malnourished which makes me confused about food and our friendship. Everything in the world feels new and scary, especially men. I am very puppy like (I’m about 3) and love to play, I just need you to teach me and haven’t quite figured out how to play with other dogs yet. I would do best in a home without children or other dogs since I need structure and a schedule to help me with my manners and thrive. I have so much love to give, but I am still adjusting to real life. I respond well to correction and am working on my manners in my foster home. My foster parents are so happy with my progress, but I’m still weary of new people. I would love to finally have a home of my own. If you are interested in meeting and potentially adopting Pumpkin please fill out an application.
