Built in circa 1700’s, the Robinson homestead has been in the family for 5 generations. The home was purchased by Oren’s great grandfather, William Smellie, with whom his father James resided. William was the Rochester Village Blacksmith and also famous throughout the state for his wheelwright and smithing capabilities. Oren and his wife, Pamela continue to live in the home set in a peaceful country setting.
The Shelter at It's All About the Animals, Inc.
It’s All About the Animals, Inc. was founded in 2009 by Oren and Pamela Robinson to give abused and abandoned felines the love, care and shelter they deserve until they find their furrever homes.
The shelter's buildings are situated in the peaceful countryside of Rochester, MA. "The Kitty Village," consists of a large "main" shelter and 4 smaller "cottages". Each unit has heat, air-conditioning, and plenty of natural light. Cheerful wall paintings, colorful shelves, furniture and toys provide a fun-filled, cage-free, environment with the stimulation that feline residents need and deserve. All feline areas have access to an outside mosquito-free space. Also on the grounds is a small “kitty clinic” where all felines are quarantined, for a minimum of 2 weeks, tested for leukemia, heart worm and FIV. It is in this unit that each animal is evaluated, examined, and medically treated.
We also rescue felines from premature euthanasia. No cat will be “put down” unless they are suffering incurable pain. Our shelter is free-roaming with access to safe, enclosed outdoor areas.
Please visit us...but beware of kitties running amok and toys scattered everywhere! A visit to our shelter is sure to brighten your heart and make you smile!
