Even the smallest gift is incredibly appreciated both by the volunteers and our large family of cats.

The Adopt-A-Cage Program:

This program helps provide funds to maintain the cats who are less likely to find loving homes and those not yet ready for adoption. As a no-kill facility, our animals are never euthanized to make room for more. Some of our cats will probably be with us their entire lives. Our two community rooms are equipped to make life comfortable for these animals and they enjoy the freedom to roam at will within their confines.

A $10.00 monthly donation (or $120 yearly, if you wish), which can be stopped at any time, helps provide for these animals. A picture and history of the "adopted" cat will be sent to you. The Adopt-A-Cage Program makes an excellent gift for animal lovers.

The shelter thrives on donations! While gifts of money are always welcome there are many items on our wish list that would be just as appreciated.

Donations to the Shelter are tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law. We are a 501 (c) (3) organization. We are all-volunteer and 100% of all donations are used to provide care and housing for the cats and kittens. We have no paid staff.

Volunteer Opportunities:

Volunteers are always needed in all aspects of shelter operations.

Caregivers - to handle the daily cleaning and feeding and spend some time socializing the cats. Two shifts daily are necessary to keep the animals properly maintained.

Adoption Counselors - to assist prospective qualified adopters select a pet who meets the needs of the family, complete the necessary paperwork and follow up to be sure the adoption is working for both the family and the animal. You will be paired with an experienced counselor and this requires a long-term commitment.

Feral Socializing - is an extremely important part of our work. Working with these special animals is a labor of love and requires dedication and patience. We have never yet found a cat who with time and commitment could not be socialized. This part of the program is not for everybody, but is deeply rewarding to those involved.

If you are interested in any of these opportunities please call the shelter at (508) 473-7008.

Who We Are

The Milford Humane Society is an all-volunteer, non-profit, no-kill shelter for stray and abandoned cats. First organized in September 1990 to fill a need in the community, we help to care and find homes for the ever-increasing number of homeless cats that exist in the local area. These cats survive by scrounging in dumpsters for food and finding shelter wherever possible.

Most of our cats are housed at the shelter. Others are cared for in foster homes until space becomes available at the shelter. Admission to the shelter is not based solely on adoptability but on need. The motto of the Milford Humane Society is to share the gift of unconditional love with as many cats and kittens as possible.

The Milford Humane Society is one of the few in our area that works with stray, abandoned and feral cats and kittens. Admission to our facility is limited to Milford and the surrounding towns and is based upon need and space limitations.

Every animal admitted to the shelter receives medical care, a warm, safe environment in which to heal and learn to trust, and much love to aid in preparation for becoming adoptable. For some animals this is a short-term program, but for others, the wounds from past treatment require a long-term commitment.

Our programs are made possible by the donations of time and money from caring people who provide the funding that keeps our doors open.

Donations are Deeply Needed and Greatly Appreciated!

Adopting a friend

The Milford Humane Society requires that adoptive families agree to several policies. Contact the shelter for further information.

There is a fee for adopting a cat or kitten. The adoption fee helps to cover the veterinary expenses incurred by the shelter.

All animals have tested negative for FeLV and FIV (unless specified), have current shots including rabies and distemper, are spayed or neutered, and are microchipped.
