A Dedication to Service
What if every homeless animal was free from cruelty, safe from harm, and received specialized care, training and behavioral support? What if every animal had a loving family and resources to thrive? Monadnock Humane Society’s programs and services are designed to do all of this and more, always with our mission at the heart of what we do—to strengthen the animal-human bond by promoting and providing for the well-being of animals.

Zeus, named after the king of the gods. Definitely king of his new home. Adjusted really well. Playful and rambunctious, purrs and headbutts everyone. The 7-year-old human boy adores him, and the dog has adjusted to him. He’s purrrrfect. They love him.
Crumpet's mum says is the most perfect cat they could ever have asked for. She is everything they wanted and more. We are happy to hear that Crumpet has adjusted well to her new life. She is very fond of food and being the center of attention (like all cats). Crumpet's mum shares that she has the voice of an angel and isn’t afraid of letting you know it.
Recently, we heard from Bliss who is living it large! Her mum says she is doing really well at home, and even played fetch for the first time ever. She is slowly but surely overcoming her fears and loves to chew everything up in typical puppy style. It sounds like Bliss keeps mum on her toes. Mum tells us that she is "so incredibly thankful for her"
