MWHS 2016 Calendar

MWHS 2016 Calendar



The MWHS 2016 calendar is done! It's time to start ordering gifts for friends and family for the upcoming holiday season! Get yours today, supplies are limited.

Prices are $14.50 each, but if people order 3 or more, they can get them for $11 each. Calendars can be picked up at the shelter after Nov 11 during normal adoption hours, or mailed to a house address for $3.95 (please select your option at checkout). This is a heartwarming calendar with wonderful pictures of local furry (or feathery) friends and their stories.

All proceeds go towards the animals patiently waiting for their forever homes. Thank you for your support of our shelter!

Keep those coins coming!

Coins for Cats

Gia is all excited that her kitty bank was absolutely full of shiny coins so she decided to extend Coins for Cash through the end of the year. Just bring all your loose change to the shelter and drop them in her bank - in her usual fashion, she will show her appreciation by climbing up on your lap and maybe give you a "Gia swipe" - that's our girl - we love her. Thanks, Gia, for all your help in making this a great fund raiser.

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.
