2021 MHS Walk for Animals
Saturday from 8:30 AM - 1:00 PM EDT
Join us for a fun run and/or walk to raise critical funds for animals in need. Get started now by registering, making a donation, and starting a fundraising page. Then ask your friends, family, colleagues — anyone who loves animals — to support you by sponsoring your walk. Not only will all proceeds go directly to animals in need, but you'll also enjoy contests, raffles, prizes, and special livestreams! If you have questions, then please email us at [email protected] Please note that the 50/50 Raffle is not tax-deductible.
Every dollar raised will help MHS care for animals in need — and the people who love them. Please click the yellow 'Register & Donate' button in the top right corner of the screen. After entering the amount, you will have a chance to ‘credit’ a specific fundraiser or team.
If you prefer to donate via phone, then please call Kerri O'Brian during normal business hours at 603-354-4022.
Alternatively, if you feel more comfortable donating via check, then please make it payable to Monadnock Humane Society and write ‘Walk for Animals’ in the memo area:

Thank you. You are amazing. And we are so glad to call you part of the MHS Family.
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!

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.
