The Coronavirus is creating a strain on our resources. We've had to curtail services, on-site staff, and postpone our biggest fund raising event. Still, pets are entering our shelter every day and we have to continue to care for them and find them homes.
The impact of this global pandemic was not anticipated in our 2020 operating budget. An average of 50 animals enter the shelter daily. Each one of these animals costs approximately $33 per day just to give them the basic care they need — not including medical or behavioral care. Animals in our community are in critical need of your help.

Did you know that NHS works with very scared and overly rowdy dogs? The shy fearful dogs need a home with patient people who won’t rush them to be friendly right away.
You are the answer to providing homeless pets a second chance. Adopt, don’t shop and offer deserving pets a bright future.
Rescuing, Rehabilitating and Rehoming animals is not cheap…but it’s the right thing to do. Help us fund lifesaving treatments and programs.
You can make a huge difference in the lives of shelter animals by offering your time and TLC.
