On September 18th I will once again be participating in the Monadnock Humane Society’s Walk For Animals.


I have been volunteering at MHS for 15 years, which makes me the longest continuously-serving volunteer,  and this organization just means everything to me. Not only have I met 9 of my bestest friends there, but I have witnessed firsthand the love and care that the less fortunate animals of our region have received while waiting for new homes. Being a part of MHS gives me great pride.

This organization relies solely on donations and navigating through the pandemic has not been without its problems, so please consider sponsoring me this year. Every dollar helps and goes to the care of the animals.
Thank you!

Saving Animal Lives With Every Step

After a challenging year, The MHS Walk for Animals is back, and we couldn't be more excited about bringing our community together in support of animals in need and the people who love them. 

Mark your calendars and plan to join us on September 18th at the Keene Dillant-Hopkins Airport.

The Walk for Animals is one of our largest fundraisers — and it's critical to bringing our mission to life. 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 our community, allowing us to run programs like our Animal Safety Net, our low-cost medical clinics, and our food pantry benefiting families in need.

Together, we can save animal lives one step at a time!

You Make MHS Possible

When our community faces challenges, inspiring compassion becomes even more important. That’s why this year’s Walk for Animals is so very special. Monadnock Humane Society needs your support more than ever before.

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, an Animal Safety Net program, and most importantly, forever homes.
