Since 1953, we have been serving the neglected and abandoned animals of the Northshore region. We are an independent, non-governmental rescue that offers veterinary care, fostering, adoption, and more. We rely solely on the support of caring people like you to fund our programs and services which profoundly benefit the animals of our community. Thank you for all of your support!

What We Do

Adoptions: Each year, we rescue, care for and find loving homes for homeless animals in our community. 

Veterinary Care: Our community clinic provides excellent veterinary care to both our rescue pets and to beloved family pets. All funds raised through our clinic directly impact the care of the homeless animals of our rescue. 

Foster: Our foster families open their homes to homeless animals who are too young, sick or scared to be immediately adopted.

Volunteer: Hundreds of volunteers take on a variety of tasks to help care for and promote our animals, assist administration, and represent NHS at community events, allowing more time for our staff to do their jobs efficiently.

Low-Cost Pet Health: Through grant and corporate partners, we are able to provide a variety of low-cost pet care to people in need. These include low cost spay/neuter opportunities, microchipping, vaccinations and more!
