Mass Humane Society is a section 501 (c) 3, non-profit, no-kill, all Volunteer team. MHS depends solely on donations from it's supporters and the dedicated Volunteers. MHS was started on June 7th, 2004 with a handful of caring and supporting Volunteers that wanted to help reach out to homeless, neglected and abused animals. Our mission at Mass Humane Society is to help rescue animals, reduce pet overpopulation through loving adoptions, provide EFFECTIVE MEANS for THE PREVENTION of CRUELTY to ALL ANIMALS and THE HUMANE TREATMENT of ALL ANIMALS, low cost Spay/Neuter assistance, and to broaden clinic participation and develop educational information on these important issues. MHS promotes and educates the humane way to handle the Feral Cat population by the means of (TNR) Trap-Neuter-Return, about the importance of animal welfare, and the co-existing with wildlife because of the depletion of their habitats and environments in Massachusetts and other states. Mass Humane Society's biggest mission and goal became a REALITY on September 30th, 2006 - the MHS animal shelter opened. MHS is constantly and diligently rescuing and helping animals in need.
Mass Humane Society is looking for donations to achieve many more missions and goals that will BRING PEOPLE AND PETS TOGETHER!! Mass Humane Society is a short term and long term haven for all the animals that come to our Shelter. ** We Keep Until We Find.

Not for dogs

posted 4 years ago

We had adopted a dog, Bella, from here about 2 years ago. We were told that she was fun loving and was house trained. We had her home with us for about a week and found her to not be house trained at all. She had also started nipping at us. We decided to work with her & train her ourselves - then she started biting. We contacted the shelter and Joan told us that we must be doing something wrong because she never bit anyone or had a history. I ran into one of the volunteers at the convenience store & tried to find out the history of our poor Bella and the volunteer told us that Bella used to nip at them and had bitten before. Very shocked that we weren't told about this as we live in a neighborhood with kids (even though our kids are grown, they still have little ones that come over constantly). very upsetting experience.
I've heard from a couple of friends that the cats are a different story as they are taken better care of than the dogs - must be the shelter owner's preference.

Pros: volunteers

Cons: president

Parents adopted a pet awhile back and was not told that she bit volunteers. The dog was "dumped" by whoever so no prior history was really known. I do know by a friend that a few workers had bite marks on them from our (at the time) new dog. The owner left this information out and not too long after adoption, she bit my father multiple times. Upon many attempts at confrontation, we were ignored. I've long since moved from MA but I know my parents no longer have her as a pet because of the biting. Unfortunately, they will only purchase dogs from reputable breeders as puppies now.

Pros: Nice facility

Cons: Tells lies to get people to adopt

One of my cats was neitered on the spay wagon when it came to our area. I was very pleased with the service. Efficient staff, and they also microchipped.

Try this local veterinary practice, I think you'll love it! Plus, it is operated by a private, non-profit animal welfare organization. This doesn't mean services are any cheaper, but it … more ›
