ABOUT NASSAU HUMANE SOCIETY

Grey Kitten.jpg

Established in 1987

NHS serves Northeast Florida and beyond from our adoption and rescue facility in Fernandina Beach, Fl. We have climate-controlled dog kennels, an indoor-outdoor cattery, and outdoor play areas for the dogs. We adopted 1,337 animals in 2019, with a 97.63% save rate. We also provide animal-control services for the City of Fernandina Beach under a contract with the city. On a regular basis as space permits, we bring in rescue animals from other shelters in our general area.  We provide them with socialization and medical care, including heartworm treatment, as we seek to find them loving forever homes.

CAT OF THE WEEK

Meet Gus! He's a little bit shy right now, but he's getting used to all of the activity in the cattery and deciding where he fits in. We know he'd really like to fit into a forever home with you!

DOG OF THE WEEK

Here's Batman! His people said he's sweet, caring and loves to be around people. He's housetrained and crate trained, walks very nicely on his leash, and knows the commands sit, stay, down, off and come.
