Nassau Humane Society is dedicated to the humane treatment of all animals; to alleviate their suffering and neglect, to support the human-animal bond, and to foster an environment in which people respect all living creatures.
We will pursue workable solutions to the most urgent animal welfare needs of our community, which are animal overpopulation and homeless pets. Our solutions will emphasize the mutual benefit of bringing pets and people together.
We will provide rescue and control as a lifeline to animals in need and for the necessary protection of our community. We will encourage and provide for pet adoption, animal-assisted therapy, pet care education, outreach spay and neuter programs and other welfare efforts, all in support of our comprehensive community service obligation.
Hope was brought to NHS in November of 2020 after a concerned member of our community witnessed her being dumped on the side of I-95 in the midst of heavy highway traffic. Hope was scared, emaciated, and lacked any sort of confidence. Upon giving Hope her first meal at the shelter, she scarfed it down as if she hadn’t eaten in days and very quickly joined herself at the hip to a few of her caretakers, fearing that she’d be abandoned again.
After spending several weeks in a loving foster home, Hope gained a healthy amount of weight, her confidence blossomed, and she started making friends with everyone she met! Hope has since been adopted into a loving home, but NHS takes on cases such as hers on a regular basis.
Dogs like Hope are why we do what we do.
Nassau Humane Society is dedicated to upholding our values and carrying out our mission to save as many animals as possible and give them the new life they very much so deserve.
