About Us

About Us

Neponset Valley Humane Society is an all-volunteer, all-foster care 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 stand with large and small progressive groups throughout the nation who know that the pet overpopulation problem can and must be solved through responsible pet ownership and spay/neuter. Every rescue and every companion animal we spay/neuter brings us one step closer to a day when every companion animal has a loving home and every feral cat has a safe place where he or she can live peacefully.

In addition to Adoption, OUR PROGRAMS INCLUDE:

Foster Care: Neponset Vally Humane Society is an all-volunteer, all-foster care organization. NVHS volunteers work hard to help as many animals as we can. We have an extensive network of foster families. Our foster families save lives everyday. Please consider joining our foster care team. The number of animals we can rescue is limited only by the number of families willing to provide foster care.

Stray Cats: NVHS volunteers do our best to help stray cats in Norwood and Stoughton, MA and other local communities as resources allow. Our resources and foster homes are limited. If you have a stray cat in need of help, please don’t hesitate to call NVHS. We can often provide medical care including spay/neuter and help the cat find a safe home. At the very least, we can provide advice as to how you can best help a cat in need. You can contact us by calling 781 769 1990 or via email at nvhumanesociety@gmail.com.

Feral Cats: NVHS has long been a proponent and practitioner of TNR – trap, neuter, return in our local communities. This is the only humane way to help feral cats and decrease the feral cat population. If you are caring for a feral cat, thank you. But please make sure the cat is spayed/neutered before they reproduce. NVHS provides free spay/neuter for feral cats in our local communities. Please do not attempt to capture a feral cat. Call or email for assistance or further information.

Spay/Neuter Assistance: Over 70% of cats entering shelters are killed due to overpopulation. This is a tragedy and can be prevented through spay/neuter. Unaltered male cats are territorial and will mark their territory with a powerful scent. Unaltered female cats go into heat and exhibit annoying behaviors such as yowling, and they add to the already high number of homeless cats and kittens. Altered pets are happier and healthier house companions. Please spay/neuter. Neponset Valley Humane Society provides spay/neuter assistance to qualified cat owners of Norwood, Stoughton and surrounding towns in MA as resources allow who love their cats but are unable to afford to spay/neuter. Call 781-769-1990 for information on this program.

Seniors-for-Seniors: NVHS has a unique and very effective program matching senior cats with senior citizens in our service areas. Many senior cats are overlooked for younger cats and kittens. These seniors have so much love to give and just need someone to share it with. If needed and as resources allow, NVHS will provide food and help with medical care. If you are, or know of, a senior whose life would be brightened with a wonderful companion, give us a call to learn more about this wonderful program.
