Help Repair Our Crematory, Welcome to the Humane Society of Walden!

Your donation will be DOUBLED! An anonymous donor will match every donation, dollar for dollar, up to $2500, to help with very necessary crematorium repairs. Since 1984 we have offered low cost cremations for those who's pets have passed on. Our service provides an economical way for people to obtain the ashes of their much loved pet.

Our crematorium has been out of service for a year and we currently have repairs underway. Our goal is to raise $2500 through your donations which will turn into $5000 through the matching funds.

Every donation is doubled. Please help as much as you can and don't forget to share with friends!

Donations can be made at the shelter: 2489 Albany Post Road, Walden, NY 12586; online using the form in left column; or by mail to: PO Box 135, Walden, NY 12586.

Please call the shelter at 845-778-5115 for information on pet cremation

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.

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. Read More »

Our Board of Directors meets on the 3rd Wednesday of the month, at 7:00 pm. Meetings are held at the Walden Savings Bank at Scotts Corners. Read More »

Please notify the shelter at 845-778-5115 and call or visit every few days. Check our Facebook page as well, we try to post pictures of all dogs and cats brought in by animal control. Read More »

Hot Cars are Death Traps for Dogs

Sometimes people take their dogs along on errands but leave them in the car. This practice can be deadly. A little heat outside a car can...

In 1999, a Rottweiler named Brutus was brought in to the shelter with very bad dysplasia at the age of 1 year. Through all the tests, his disposition remained sweet & lovable. The local newspaper did a story because the shelter could not afford to treat him, yet didn't have the heart to put him to sleep.

Thanks to that newspaper, the response from people was overwhelming and the Brutus Fund was formed. The fund has been used for all adoptable animals with various medical problems. Now, due to a large amount of animals needing medical care, the Brutus Fund is in trouble. We are treating 3 dogs with heart-worms and 1 with Lyme's disease, older cats who require dental care and kittens who need immune boosting treatment.

We desperately need donations to The Brutus Fund in order to continue the treatment of animals that others can no longer care for. Donations of any size are gratefully accepted.
