Northumberland Humane Society


This program directly benefits one pet at a time, mostly those who require extreme medical attention. When a donation is made, a story and picture of a chosen or randomly selected pet is mailed out either to the donor or to someone the donor designates. The story includes the reason for the pet being at the shelter (owner surrender, animal cruelty removal, etc.), character traits about the animal and the medical issues the animal faces.

Injured and sick animals enter our shelter all the time, and often the medical bills to care for these animals are staggering. This program helps to offset the cost of getting these pets back on their feet so they can find their permanent homes!

Please Note

We make every effort to assign each guardian to the pet they have chosen, however, some pets may need to be addressed first due to extreme medical situations. If this is the case, a different pet may be assigned to you out of necessity.

Either way, you are helping save a pet’s life - what better reward is there?
