About Us


Welcome to our shelter!

While we invite you to come down and see our animals available for adoption, We do encourage you to make an appointment with one of our adoption specialists.

Having one on one time with us as well as with the animals you are interested in, ensures you are receiving both adequate time to visit and learn about the animals in our care. 


New Website added ! Come check us out! 



New Years News!

As a No Kill Rescue Organization, and one with a motto that "Every Life Matters", it is with a warm heart that we put forth a new policy in place that only vegatarian food will be provided at our sponsored events (Fundraisers, volunteer meetings, open house, etc) For those that we work with, creating a dual fundraiser, we will strongly encourage them to do the same. We hope that creating this menu for our organization, that other rescue groups will follow suit.

We truly believe in our mission that Every Life Matters, and with the assistance of "Food For Thought", we welcome this new change in our policy.

Who We Are

About us :


The Meriden Humane Society is a non profit, " NO Kill " animal shelter and rescue facility, and have been since 1893.

Many of our animals are taken from high risk situations like high kill pounds, cruelty investigations and from private citizens who are no longer able to care for their animals.

Our organization is privately run and operated and is supported by patrons and residents who donate to our facility. WE RECEIVE NO FUNDING FROM THE CITY OR STATE OF CT.

Without the help we receive from the citizens of our community and surrounding communities, we would not be able to save all the animals that we do.

Thank you for your help in saving animals lives, and joining us in our passionate mission, as each and every life matters!
