Since 1974, the staff and volunteers of the Humane Society of Walden have provided quality care for many companion pets while they wait for their forever homes.
The Humane Society of Walden is a non-profit organization dedicated to helping stray and abandoned cats and dogs. Our animal shelter serves the communities of Montgomery, Walden, Maybrook, Gardiner and Towns of Hamptonburgh, Wawarsing and Shawangunk, but will not turn away pets from across the country in need.
The Humane Society of Walden believes that all animals have a natural right to humane treatment including proper care, respect and safe shelter. Our primary mission is to provide care while finding permanent, loving homes for the many animals that come to our door.
We are a no kill shelter, humanely euthanizing only those animals who are seriously ill or injured, or, who have demonstrated they are vicious and dangerous to others.
Our Shelter staff sees that each of our animals will receive the very best possible care. The shelter has dog kennels with outside access and they are always filled to capacity. There are also outside fenced-in and enclosed areas that allow our dogs daily exercise.
Our Cat Palaces presently have many beautiful felines of every shape, age, sex and color. These cats are all spayed/neutered and have all their shots.
The Palaces are a furnished room with plenty of nooks and crannies which provide lots of entertainment for these adoptable cats. They also have access to the outside in a completely enclosed pen with many lofty perches.
Through our partnership with Middletown Petsmart we have between six and ten cats at their adoption center where they are seen by hundreds of people every day. We are able to adopt out several cats almost every week from this location, stop by and say Hi to our kitties there!
