ABOUT NASSAU HUMANE SOCIETY
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 1,472 animals in 2020, with a 97.82% 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
Cricket is a sweetie who loves people and loves affection! We're very fond of Cricket because she's a true rescue cat, and she has come a long way with us. When she arrived she was extremely shy, but with TLC from our staff and volunteers she has really blossomed.
DOG OF THE WEEK
Junie B. Jones has a superpower -- she's a cuddle bug! She has been with us for almost a year, through no fault of her own. She won't hear you call for her because she's deaf, but she will wiggle her back-side right on up to you when she sees you. She even responds to hand commands!
EMERGENCY MEDICAL FUND
Dee Dee came to us as a stray with a large tumor on her face. With the help of donors like you, NHS was able to help Dee Dee without hesitation. Click here to learn more about how our Emergency Medical Fund helps us to save as many animals as possible.
