Special request for Cheddar

Cheddar has found a foster/hospice home!!! We want to thank everyone who donated to his care.  We are committed to taking care of him for the time he has left and we are grateful that this time will be spent in a HOME and not a CAGE. Thanks again for your help.

Our Mission

MHS takes in cats only.  We take injured, unwanted and abandoned cats, get them medically treated, spayed/neutered, then we hold them until we find permanent homes for them. We show cats ready for adoption at PetSmart in Saugus, MA.  We have no brick-and-mortar shelter; we use our volunteers homes as foster homes.  We are an all volunteer 501(C)3 organization completely dependent on donations.  We are always looking for foster homes. Use the CONTACT US button to let us know if you would like to be a foster home.

Guardian Angel Cats of yesterday...

This is Helen a Guardian Angel cat.  She was born with no eyes.  We have no idea how she survived until Melrose Humane Society found her and took her in.  She lived in a foster home for more than 10 years...sadly, she passed away from a heart problem early in 2017.

Helen came to MHS as a blind kitten...she was born without eyes. How she managed to survive until we found her is a mystery.  She was a Guardian Angel cat for many years.  Our Guardian Angel program pays for all vet care needed for our 'special' cats; you provide the love and caring.

Cheddar was not well taken care of and when he had a lump on his lip, his owner decided to give him up.  Turns out, the lump is cancerous and it means he has only a short time to live.  We would like him to have a home and not be kept in a cage for the time he has left.  We would pay all medical bills and all you have to supply is a warm home and love.

Elvis - the cat - has been adopted by his foster mom.  She fell in love with him BEFORE his eye surgery and could not let him go after.  As you can see - Elvis fell in love with the resident dog.  We want to thank everyone who contributed to Elvis's eye surgery.  You have made his life complete!

Waldo is really a female cat.  Somehow she was named Waldo and the name stuck. She was rescued as a kitten and is shy and reserved. But, she will blossom with love and patience. She has recently found a new home.  

Our hope for all Angel cats

Melrose Humane Society works with many people who have lost their beloved cats and are seeking to find a new one.  A beloved friend can never be replaced, but it is possible to find a new friend...

Help Us to help Them

Your support and contributions will enable us to help these animals. Melrose Humane is 100% donor supported.  We receive no monies from state or federal agencies.
