Melrose Humane Society (MHS) is a cat/kitten animal rescue located in Melrose, MA. We are 100% volunteer-run and 100% donation-supported. We are a 501(c)3 non profit.

Cats and kittens that are in our care receive veterinary care and all the creature comforts we can provide. All of our rescues are provided spay/neuters. We do not euthanize cats unless medically necessary.

We work with adopters to find the right fit between family and pet. All adoptions start with an online application - fill one out today!

Rescue work requires a lot of resources. We are always looking for new and interesting ways to pay for our vet bills and pay for food and kitty litter. Please consider donating to us! We need financial donations and donations of supplies, such as litter and cat food.

Our volunteers rescue cats and kittens, provide them with care in foster homes and in our shelter, and help place cats and kittens in forever-families. We are always looking for volunteers to foster our cats, to transport cats to medical appointments, and to assist at the shelter.
