Briggs founded The National Humane Education Society (NHES) as a private, nonprofit organization with a central mission "to foster a sentiment of kindness to animals in children and adults . . . ." Fifty-five years later, without financial assistance from local, state, or federal governments, NHES continues to expand and decrease animal suffering through its humane education program and the services provided through its animal care programs. Today, with approximately 360,000 supporters, NHES remains committed to Mrs. Briggs' ethical course, to never euthanize a healthy animal.

I regularly donate to animal and environmental charities. When I got a letter (and a $2 check) from this charity, I came to charity navigator to check them out and found that they only have 2 stars. Also I found it suspicious that the president and vice-president have the same last name. To keep them from continuing to send me letters requesting a donation, I have decided to cash their $2 check and give it to my LOCAL animal shelter. That way, the money will still go to animals, but to a place that uses the money much more wisely, and I won't get any more donation requests from them.

Upon visiting this site, I was impressed at their treatment of animals. It is a very inviting environment and reminds me of orphanages I have visited. However, when I applied to adopt an animal, I was initially approved, but later received a phone call and was told that because I have a child with a disability (5 y/o), I was not approved for the puppy I sought to adopt. Their reason was not due to concern over care for the animal, but they somehow thought that a child with a hearing/speach problem would create a problem for the dog. Very odd. I choose not to recommend this location and not to donate there.
