Wherever you are, whoever you’re with, join us on September 19 for the Walk for Animals: Reimagined, a virtual take on our life-saving event!
Each and every day, our priority is to make sure the animals in our care are healthy, happy, and safe. A crisis can’t change that. Now more than ever, we are calling on animal lovers like you!
The Walk for Animals is one of Monadnock Humane Society's largest fundraisers and allows us to continue helping those who need us – both pets and people.
The money raised provides vital medical treatment and a second chance to the dogs, cats, and all other animals here at our shelter. It also supports the community, allowing us to run programs like our Animal Safety Net, our low-cost medical clinics, and our food pantry benefiting families in need.
Fundraise from home and walk with us along your favorite route. Together, we can save animal lives one step at a time!
Register by August 24 for the following benefits plus a chance to win an Apple Watch:
The best benefit... All proceeds will go directly toward caring for the homeless animals of our community!

When our community faces challenges, inspiring compassion becomes even more important. That’s why this year’s Walk for Animals: Reimagined is so very special. Monadnock Humane Society needs your support more than ever before. And while the event may look different this year — wherever we are, whatever the circumstances — we’ll be standing together to save animal lives.
When you register to fundraise for the Walk for Animals, you're committing to help MHS build a more compassionate community for animals and the people who love them. Every dollar we raise goes towards our mission and makes lifesaving differences for thousands of shelter animals each year. Your support makes it possible for us to provide pets in need with safe shelter, medical care, rescue and rehabilitation, boarding and daycare, training services, a pet food pantry, Animal Safety Net program, and most importantly, forever homes.
