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.
