Help the Animals
Adopting a Pet
The goal of the NHS adoption program is to match the right home with the right animal to begin building a forever family. Making room in your life and a place in your heart for an animal will create a connection that will change both of you forever. We’re here from day one to be part of your amazing journey together.
Check out our animals currently waiting patiently for their “forever home”.
Making a Donation
As NHS receives no government funding, we are entirely dependent on the generosity and goodwill of the communities that we serve. Therefore, we must fundraise to support our operation. Every year, over 500 animals receive compassionate care during their stay with us, plus veterinary care as required, for as long as it takes to find them their “forever home”.
The Northumberland Humane Society is a charitable community resource dedicated to protecting and providing temporary shelter and comfort to all animals in need and promoting adoption and rehoming for abused, abandoned, neglected and unwanted companion animals.
We promote humane treatment of all living things and work within the law to respond to and investigate all complaints of cruelty and neglect. The Northumberland Humane Society endeavours to eliminate cruelty and over populations and we support the principle that no person has the right to cause pain or suffering to a living creature.
Saving one animal will not change the world,
but surely for that one animal, the world will change forever.
Looking for a way to make a difference for animals in need without affecting your current income? Please consider a legacy gift as your living monument to improve the lives of animals long into the future.
Foster A Pet
NHS is always looking for temporary foster homes for our animals as they await adoption to their permanent homes. We provide all supplies to foster homes including food, dishes, litter/litter box, blankets and a crate. We also provide medications and prescription diet as required. As a foster volunteer, you provide a safe and caring home for your new house guest.
