The Volunteer Humane Society as we know it today began in the early 1970's when a concerned animal lover, Gail Burton of Harvard, Massachusetts, began to care for stray dogs and cats in an empty barn on her property. She, along with other people that she recruited, cared for the animals there, and attempted to place them in new homes. In 1974 this small group of dedicated people founded and incorporated the Volunteer Humane Society (VHS) as a non-profit organization dedicated to caring for stray and abandoned animals.

In March, 1988, the VHS moved into it's current shelter at 505 Center Bridge Road in Lancaster, Massachusetts. In 1992, using a grant from the Marguerite Doe Foundation, part of the shelter was converted into a much improved medical area in which incoming and sick animals are evaluated and cared for.

At present the shelter houses anywhere from 30-50 cats. In addition, as many as 20 animals are also under foster care in various homes of volunteers.

No pets found on this shelter
