Ways to Give

Every donation to The National Humane Education Society (NHES) helps us save the lives of thousands of homeless, sick, injured and abused animals each year. Your gift also ensures that your community members are educated about animal care.  Listed here are ways that you can make a donation to NHES.

Since 1948, NHES has worked to rescue abandoned and abused animals, end animal cruelty, and provide life-changing humane education to children and adults. Your support helps NHES to continue these efforts. Help us make a difference and donate today!
