PLEASE HELP US HELP THE ANIMALS
Make your Donation to the Neponset Valley Humane Society online right now through the Network for Good! Your donation is safe, secure, and private.
Sponsor a cat. Some cats just don't get adopted. Some are old. Some did not have the advantage of living among nice people when they were babies and so they are fearful. Some have medical issues. These cats still need a home and someone to love them. We are very fortunate to have foster homes who care for these cats for whom no one else wants to care. If you cannot adopt, maybe consider sponsoring one of these kitties.
Volunteer your time helping animals. We need your help! We need you to advocate for the humane care of all companion animals and feral cats.
Donate items: NVHS volunteers feed many foster cats as well as feral and neighborhood cats. We are always in need of cat food - canned and dry. Our cats are not fussy but they are hungry. If you are going to donate cat food, please stretch your dollar as far as possible and buy well-priced reasonable quality food.
Spay/neuter your own pet. Every year, millions of healthy adoptable companion animals are killed in overcrowded shelters in the United States due simply to overpopulation. Through responsible pet ownership and spay/neuter, someday every pet will have the loving home he or she deserves. You can be part of the solution by spay/neutering your own pet.
Little Holly was one of an accidental litter and her former family did not want her. We are thrilled to say that Holly was adopted by a family who could not love her more. Despite the fact that she is still a youngster, she is quite brave.

CURRENT EVENTS FROM THE NEPONSET VALLEY HUMANE SOCIETY
Events for 2013
The number of abandoned pet cats in our local communities has exploded over the last several months. Friendly, once-owned cats are joining the hundreds of feral cats seeking food. The shelters are full and there are not enough foster homes so a very small group of unpaid volunteers from Neponset Valley Humane Society (NVHS), based in Norwood, MA, make it their mission to feed these abandoned animals. The organization desperately needs more food to keep these efforts going and asks that you participate in our second annual Food Raiser Drive.
Please purchase low cost food as quantity is much more important than quality for these efforts. NVHS realizes how busy everyone is so volunteers will be coming around to homes in the area to pick up the food left outside on this day. Any donation would be appreciated so please keep the abandoned cats in mind as you do your grocery shopping.
Please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org to leave your address for pickup. In addition, Marilyn’s Hair Studio of Walpole and All Season Tree Service of Stoughton have graciously agreed to be drop-off points for this effort.
Cat overpopulation will only stop when all owners spay and neuter. NVHS and its all-volunteer staff work diligently and consistently to provide access to affordable spay/neuter for all cat owners and to reduce the number of homeless cats. Even as the spay and neuter efforts continue, the need for food is rising so any donations are graciously accepted and deeply appreciated.
For more information, call 781 769 1990 or via email at email@example.com. Neponset Valley Humane Society is a non-profit, no-kill, all volunteer 501(c)(3) charitable organization working to spay, neuter and house abandoned and abused animals.

Neponset Valley Humane Society Awarded Grant From “I’m Animal Friendly” License Plate Funds
In its continuing quest toward a world without homeless cats and kittens, the Neponset Valley Humane Society is honored to announce they have been awarded a 2013 grant from the MA “I’m Animal Friendly” license plate program. This program gives worthy humane organizations support toward important efforts. In this case, all funds will be used towards the NVHS low-cost feline spay and neuter program in the town of Stoughton.
NVHS president, Judy Ambrose said "As a small organization, we are called upon quite often by numerous towns and cities. In the past few years, our volunteers have been increasingly called upon to help with countless stray cats in Stoughton. We have rescued many friendly abandoned pet cats including several young, friendly mothers with newborn kittens. These cats once had an owner. It appears that many cats are abandoned simply because they are not spayed or neutered. A neutered cat is a much cleaner, happier and healthier pet and she won’t add to the already tragic cat overpopulation problem".
Neponset Valley Humane Society believes that the only way to eliminate the tragic overpopulation of unwanted cats and kittens is to spay and neuter whenever possible. Says Ambrose, "Our goal is to ensure that any Stoughton cat owner who loves their cat but is financially unable to afford to spay/neuter that cat knows they can call NVHS for help before the cat develops those intolerable behaviors that come naturally to unaltered pets and before she gives birth to more homeless kittens”.
The Neponset Valley Humane Society encourages all pet owners to spay/neuter and avoid accidental litters, helping every cat find the loving home they deserve.

PLEASE SPAY/NEUTER YOUR PET - Stop pet overpopulation by avoiding accidental litters. The killing of companion animals due to overpopulation is tragic and preventable. It is the philosophy of Neponset Valley Humane Society that no animal should be killed due to overpopulation. This goal is achievable through responsible pet ownership and spay/neuter. Please do your part. Neuter your own pet. If you need assistance getting your cat spayed/neutered, contact NVHS at 781 769 1990 or email email@example.com.
FOOD FOR FERAL CATS: Volunteers of Neponset Valley Humane Society care for feral cats every single day. These are cats who have not had the benefit of being socialized by humans when they were babies. They fear humans and prefer to live outdoors away from people. It's a hard life, especially in the New England winters. But our volunteers do the best they can to help these cats. Every cat is spayed or neutered and vaccinated. NVHS pays for the care for all these cats since they have no "owner". We provide the best shelters we can. And our volunteers take food and water to these cats every single day, 365 days a year. We are always in need of cat food donations. Our cats are not fussy. If you bought a food your kitty rejected, our cats would be thrilled to have it donated to NVHS. Please call us at 781-769-1990 if you wish to donate cat food. We have managed feral colonies and volunteers in many locations throughout the Neponset Valley area (Canton, Medfield, Norwood, Stoughton, Walpole, Westwood). We may be able to arrange to have a volunteer pick up the food. Thank you for helping the cats.
WORKING TOWARD A CAT SANCTUARY: Neponset Valley Humane Society is actively seeking a parcel of land to call home for cats who do not get adopted. Because the cat overpopulation problem is so severe, there are many cats who just don't find their special someone. Some are very shy. Some are ferals displaced by unkind humans who threaten to harm them. There are so many cats in need and NVHS volunteers would love to be able to provide a modest, safe environment for these cats to call home. If you are able to donate a parcel of land or would like to make a donation to our Sanctuary fund, please call us at 781-769-1990 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
