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


Introducing Missy! Missy is a beautiful and young shepherd mix. She gets along with everybody! Dogs, cats, and people, she just loves the company. Missy's personality shines during playtime, her favorite time! She also does well on a leash. She has begun having occasional seizures and is now on medication to regulate them. The medication she needs to control her seizures is relatively inexpensive, and easy to manage.

Cat of the week


Meet inky. We have had this beautiful cat in our care for far too long considering all she has to offer. She’s very playful and adventurous while also loves to cuddle and be cuddled. Inky would love to be adopted with one of her siblings, but she could also thrive by herself. Don't let this mini jet black panther fool you, she is ready to give all her sweetness to her forever home.
