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.

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. 

Update on Pirate's eye surgery

Pirate has had eye surgery and though he may be blind in that eye, he is now in a safe and loving home.  He does not need both eyes to be sure he is safe!  

Update on Mickey's condition

MHS wants to thank everyone who contributed to Mickey's emergency surgery.  HE MADE IT!!  He is now recovering nicely.

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

A picture of Jesus holding departed animals in his hand to care for them until they can be reunited with their loved ones.

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...
