HILLTOP HUMANE SOCIETY INC
November 15, 2012

I have been a volunteer at Hiltop Humane Society 17 years. The volunteers at this shelter are dedicated to helping any feral/injured/homeless cat they can. When other shelters say "we have no room" Hilltop volunteers always seem to step up and make room in their personal home to foster the cat so it will not go without the care or shelter needed to survive. There is a "where there's a will there's a way" attitude from all the volunteers I've met through the years at Hilltop. I am always amazed at the way these folks open up their homes to "misfit" and undesireable cats that no one wants and therefore they get dropped off at our doorstep sometimes with just a note, sometimes with no explanation at all. Most times we have no background information on the cats' medical record or age, etc. We have to start from scratch and get them to a vet to get examined. Often the cats that get dropped off to us have behavioral issues and each and every volunteer has personally worked with each cat until they are adoption ready. This can take months to several years. Some of our "Happy Endings" on our web site are stories about cats who finally got adopted after waiting 5+ years for a home. Please give HIlltop a fighting chance to continue the great work they do to continue helping animals in need in the Boston area.
