We take in many animals who have significant medical needs. Our mission aims to provide them with every medical option possible and place them up for adoption once medically cleared. We rely on medical sponsors to help us with this extraordinary care, and we could not save the lives of these animals if it were not for the generosity of our medical sponsorship donors. Nassau Humane Society receives no tax dollars for the animals in our care and our facility is funded completely from private donations.

Our Special Medical Funds
Milo's Fund and the WAGS Fund
Nassau Humane Society is committed to the animals entrusted in our care. If you would like to help with medical costs for the animals NHS helps daily, please make a donation or stop in the shelter and meet the animals your donations help.
NHS has two special funds to help pay for our pets' medical care. MILO'S FUND is set up to pay for special surgeries that are more expensive than the regular medical care our animals receive. The WAGS FUND pays for heartworm-positive NHS dogs to receive life-saving treatment, and allows us to rescue heartworm-positive dogs from other shelters who otherwise might never be treated. You can designate that your donation to NHS will go directly to one of these very special funds. For more information, please email us at [email protected], and thank you!
