Who We Are

The Humane Society of Monroe is comprised of five board members and some volunteers who help to trap feral cats, get them tested, neutered and either returned or socialized and adopted. We also provide networking to help animals in need of homes find their new loving homes.

Adopting a friend

We do not operate out of a shelter. All of our adoptions are from the original or foster homes and unfortunately, we cannot accept additional animals due to the lack of foster homes. We do our best to match the type and personality of our four-legged friends with their new human companions. For the most part, you will be speaking directly with the original owners of the dogs or someone who has fostered them in a home setting. If we don't have the pet you are looking for, we also network with other shelters and rescue folks and can help you get connected with someone who might have your new companion.

Volunteering and Donations

We are in need of foster homes. These will mainly be for feral cats & kittens who need socializing and sometimes kittens needing bottle feeding. Any and all help is appreciated, especially during "kitten season". Of course, donations are appreciated as we receive money solely from donations and our own fundraising efforts. Anything you can donate is most appreciated to help us help our little friends.
