Who We Are

Neponset Valley Humane Society, Inc., founded in 1993, is a 501(c)(3), all volunteer, non-profit charitable organization with a no-kill philosophy, dedicated to helping animals. We have volunteers in the Neponset Valley region - southwest of the Boston.

NVHS has been caring for homeless felines since its inception in 1993. With approximately 60 volunteers, these generous caregivers manage numerous cat colonies with hundreds of cats each day throughout the Neponset Valley and adjacent towns. Each day the animals are fed, newcomers are trapped and spayed or neutered while sick animals are helped. NVHS also places adoptable animals in loving homes each year through our kitten and cat rescue operation.

Our Mission:

Our Programs:

Adopting a friend

Thank you for considering providing a loving forever home for a cat in need. Our cats are spayed/neutered, vaccinated and tested for FIV and Leukemia. In lieu of an adoption fee, NVHS requests a donation in the amount of $50 to $100 to help us continue to help the cats. It is imperative that every cat is spayed or neutered in order to help stop this very sad problem of cats not having homes simply due to overpopulation. Your donations help us continue our mission of helping to stop the pet overpopulation problem through spay/neuter. If you are a senior, or if you are thinking about adopting a senior or special needs cat, please ask about out Seniors for Seniors or Special Kitties program.

If you are considering a kitten, please consider adopting a pair. Few things are as much fun in life as watching kittens play with each other and then cuddle up together once they've exhausted each other. It's fun for them and it's fun for us. With all our lives so busy these days, it's important that a baby has a friend while we are at work or school. Most kittens do best in pairs. If you are sure you cannot adopt two, we will find a confident kitty for you who enjoys being the only one.

Have another pet at home and not sure if he or she wants a new sibling? Don't worry. Our volunteers are eager to provide advice on how to do the introduction. Because our cats are in foster homes, we can usually tell you if they get along with other cats or with dogs. Everyone wants to live in a family where there is harmony among the pets. We understand that and our volunteers will do our best to help you find the cat who is right for your home and family.
