About Us

Humane Society of Walden

Our Story

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 no-kill, 501(c)(3) non-profit safe haven dedicated to helping stray and abandoned cats and dogs. Our animal shelter serves the communities of Montgomery, Walden, Maybrook, Crawford, Wawarsing, Shawangunk, and Mamakating, but will not turn away pets from across the country in need.

We have many wonderful dogs and cats of all breeds, ages and sizes. Please visit us and meet the perfect pet companion for you and your family.

Hours of Operation

We are open 7 days a week from noon until 4pm. Call 845-778-5115 to inquire about any animal you have seen on our web site, facebook page, or one our adoption centers at Middletown and Monroe Petsmart.

Holiday Closures: New Year’s Day, Easter, Thanksgiving, Christmas Day
