Your NHS News and Updates

This newsletter shares current updates on how your donations help turn goals into reality through the work we are doing for animals, shelters, families and individuals.

Goal Update

We are working to expand our help to shelters, families and individuals.

The National Humane Society understands the bonds families and individuals create with their pets, and is currently working to expand our capability not only to help shelters, but to keep already existing animal families together.

Service Spotlight: Helping Families and Individuals

Every year, the National Humane Society receives hundreds of inquiries seeking help from individuals, and our contributions save animals and their owners from needing to surrender much loved members of a family to already over-crowded shelters.

Keeping the Fight Alive to Protect and Shelter Animals

With your help, we have first and foremost kept the fight alive to help protect abandoned and homeless animals.

Every day we help our shelters across the country with food, medicine, housing, electric bills and more. Operational costs remain high for this kind of work and it is always our goal to aid volunteers and the selfless workers across the country who share our vision of bettering the lives of animals. For this reason, we work only with organizations that assist in finding new homes for pets and that can guarantee shelter until we are able to find forever homes for the animals in question.

Many animals, however, thrive better outside of a shelter environment, whether it’s for behavioral or medical reasons.

The National Humane Society has responded to this need in districts across America by pooling resources and finding more and more foster homes for animals in need. We then provide as much assistance as we can to these generous people who are willing to open their homes and hearts to animals looking for a forever home.

Great Successes

With your help, some of our greatest successes came from our contributions to spay/neuter clinics across the states to help curb the pet overpopulation crisis affecting the country. Just one of the many spay/neuter clinics that we contribute to successfully fixed 85,000 animals alone.

A primary objective of our efforts in the past year included working with our shelters and humane societies, as well as multiple spay/neuter clinics across the states in the hopes of curbing the pet overpopulation crisis affecting the country.

Education Efforts About Why Animals Matter

The National Humane Society has worked diligently the past year to increase education efforts across the neediest sectors of the United States about why animals matter.

Whether it’s advocating with law enforcement on changes to animal seizure protocols, or informing policy makers on why we shouldn’t be euthanizing animals, NHS’s main mission is to save these ailing animals from any more mistreatment.

In this endeavor particularly, we’ve seen great improvement, with numbers of estimated put downs decreasing from 10 million to about 4 or 5 million each year. It is not enough though and the National Humane Society continues its mission to bring that number down even more.

With your continued help and generosity, we know that we can continue to change the world one animal at a time.
