Saving Lives, Building Families.

As of now, Bedford Humane Society is a foster-based facility. We are striving every day to raise money to build our own facility, including a pending launch of a capital campaign! Our hopes for future are high, but for now our success is intertwined with our amazing fosters and volunteers. 

As long as there are homeless pets, we will need volunteers! If you are ready to make a difference in your community and want to join us on our journey to save as many animals as possible, please send an email to to find out how you can get involved. No matter how big or how small, it all makes a difference. Bedford Humane Society appreciates your help almost as much as the animals do. 

Dog of the week


Meet Duke! He is an easy going lab mix. Duke doesn’t know many commands but knows one thing for sure, he wants to be with you. He is good with other dogs, children, and seems interested in cats. He has done fine riding in the car and even though he really hasn’t had any training, he does well on a leash. Best of all he doesn’t jump on you, Duke makes for the perfect tag along best friend.

Cat of the week


Meet Milo, or his other alias, Red Panda. He’s a flame point snow shoe Siamese mix with gorgeous blue eyes. This beautiful boy is 3 years old and a very sweet boy, who would probably do best as a single pet. He is overweight so we are looking for a very conscious owner who would work on that with him including playtime and dietary needs. Red Panda is so excited for his new journey.
