Coins for Cats

MWHS Craft Fair

You know all those coins that sit on top of your bureau collecting dust or the ones that fall out of your pocket and sit under the cushions on your couch - well, you can put all of these coins to good use by donating them to MetroWest Humane Society. The cats love this fundraiser – they are always there to count all the pennies, nickels, dimes and quarters. They are not too eager to roll them but know their human volunteer friends will take care of that, bring them to the bank, and buy some of their favorite Fancy Feast food. So, start collecting all those coins and bring them to the shelter where there is a Coins for Cats donation jar in the front lobby. It is a great fundraiser and goes a long way to help our shelter cats and kittens. Our furry friends thank you.

Especially for Pets

Especially for Pets

The Especially for Pets’ Adoption Initiative Program finds permanent, loving homes for homeless pets, as well as raises awareness about the work being done in the rescue community.

In six month increments, each Especially for Pets’ store teams up with a local non-profit or rescue organization to educate our customers about the specific organizations, to collect donations, and ultimately to help find homes for pets in their care. We would like to thank Especially for Pets for choosing MetroWest Humane Society to be a part of the Adoption Initiative Program at their Sudbury store from July through December. We hope you will stop by, check out some of our adoptable cats and make a donation to the shelter. Also, make sure to do some shopping of your own at one of their stores. They carry excellent products, and their staff is wonderful and very knowledgeable - a great organization that is always supportive of rescues and shelters in the community.

Love and LearnThe purpose of our on-going special "Love and Learn " adoption campaign is to urge people to adopt pets who may seem less adoptable simply because of the way they look, their age, they are shy, or because they have a medical condition.
