    We are firmly committed to spay and neuter as a primary solution to the overpopulation of unwanted
    animals in our country.

    Today millions of healthy, loving animals die in shelters because there are no homes.
    Spay and neuter is the only long-term answer.

About us

Neponset Valley Humane Society is an all-volunteer not-for-profit 501(C) (3) organization devoted to caring for companion animals, abandoned and abused animals and feral cats and kittens. We are funded entirely by private donations.  We focus primarily on helping cats because cats are most at risk in our area. We also provide adoption services for pet rabbits and guinea pigs. We stand with large and small progressive groups throughout the nation who know that the pet overpopulation problem c

We are all volunteers and can always use more help. You can volunteer with us or help by advocating for companion animals and feral cats in your home, office and neighborhood.


We have a small but capable team of dedicated volunteers who work in the field responding to calls to help stray or abandoned pet cats and feral cats in our local communities.


We rely completely on dedicated foster families and are always in search of more volunteers to do foster care. Every pet we rescue needs a temporary place to heal and wait for a forever family to come along to adopt him or her.


Please adopt if you can. NVHS volunteers work hard to get to know the cats in our care so we can make a good match. People are not all the same. Neither are cats or bunnies. We want your adoption to be forever. Every adoption saves a life by enabling us to focus our limited resources on another pet in need.


We advocate spay/neuter to decrease the pet overpopulation problem and regularly hold low cost spay/neuter clinics. The most important thing you can do to help decrease the pet overpopulation problem is to spay/neuter your own pet.


Because we are an all volunteer organization, we have zero expense for salaries. All our pets are housed in volunteer foster homes and so every donation dollar directly benefits the animals in our care. We put the animals’ needs first and strive to help as many animals as possible with limited resources. We are a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit charitable organization.



The NVHS all-volunteer Cat Rescue Team received a grant from the Mass Animal Coalition (MAC) to spay/neuter 80 feral cats in 2011 (in addition to 100 to be neutered with private donations). This grant is made possible through the Spay/Neuter License Plate program so thank you to everyone who has purchased a Spay/Neuter plate. If you have not purchased your plate, visit the MAC website at www.petplate.org.
