About Us

Melrose Humane Society, incorporated in 1993, rescues cats and kittens in Massachusetts. We are an all-volunteer animal rescue, and we are a registered 501(c)(3). We have an extensive network of foster homes that help us care for our rescues; additionally, we have a small shelter inside the Petsmart in Saugus, MA.

Our cats come into our care in many ways - often from colonies of strays all over Massachusetts. Our cats are adopted to families all over Massachusetts, but primarily: Boston, Malden, Somerville, Medford, and Melrose.
