MWHS 2018 Pet Calendar Contest

MWHS Craft Fair

This is a super fun way to show off your best friend, all while changing the lives of homeless cats in our community. All votes placed...and all dollars raised...will help pay for food, shelter, and medical care for homeless cats in our care.

Voting starts now, and end on Sunday September 24th at 7:00 PM.

MWHS is a no-kill shelter that works hard to find forever homes for surrendered and lost cats and kittens, reduce the stray and feral cat population, offer humane educational programs, and so much more. But we can't do it without you! Please do consider helping us by submitting your photo (it's free!) and encouraging your friends and family to vote. This year the vote bank is back and all you'll need to enter is your email address and a password of your choice! The top 12 winners will be featured on our 2018 calendar, which will be available for purchase at the MWHS shelter. UPLOAD YOUR PHOTOS NOW

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.

MWHS Annual Craft Fair

MWHS Craft Fair

Our annual craft fair is always a huge success in raising money for our shelter cats, and such a perfect opportunity for vendors to sell their beautiful crafts to the hundreds of people from the community attending the Fair.

The date of the Craft Fair is September 16, 2017 from 10:00 am - 4:00 pm (rain or shine) at the Framingham Common on Edgell Road.

If you are interested in being a vendor, please download the application, or contact Sue Budge at or 508-788-7726 if you have any questions.

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.
