New Rochelle Humane Society, Inc. Overview
Programs: There is great need to reduce the overpopulation of domestic animals worldwide. Locally, the low-cost spay/neuter program of the New Rochelle Humane Society targets this concern. NRHS offers outreach education in the public schools and provides literature on understanding and caring for animals. We are also proud to have a veterinary technician as our Shelter Manager, affording us the opportunity to bring current healthcare information not only to our shelter, but to our adopting pet parents as well. NRHS also makes visits with pets to nursing homes. The pets provide therapy and entertainment for the patients. One of NRHS recent accomplishments was scheduling a series of Dog Adoption Days at various pet supply stores within a 40 mile radius, bringing the pets to potential adopters, rather than waiting for them to come to the shelter.
