Keep those coins coming!

Coins for Cats

Gia would like to thank everyone who brought all their loose change to the shelter for our fundraiser, "Coins for Cats." She was certainly a busy girl counting all the coins and happily reports that we raised close to $500 - that certainly will buy a lot of cat food for our shelter cats. Gia asked if we could keep out her piggy bank to collect more, and, of course, we always cater to her every whim! So, keep those coins coming and drop them off at the shelter - she sure would like to fill her piggy bank again.

Available Shelter Position

The MetroWest Humane Society has a full-time Shelter Manager position available. We are seeking a certified veterinary technician to manage the medical care of our cats as well as the daily operations of our shelter.

Love and Learn

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.
