National Humane Education Society Charity Profile
The National Humane Education Society (NHES), with offices located near Charles Town, West Virginia, is a non-profit animal welfare organization that has been in existence for more than half a century. NHES was created by Anna C. Briggs in 1948.
Our mission is to foster a sentiment of kindness to animals in children and adults.
The National Humane Education Society provides humane education, rescue and relief assistance for animals, as well as screened adoption services. Through the Humane Education Department, we provide educational presentations to all ages and information services to members as well as to the general public.
NHES networks with other humane organizations to better the lives of all animals. We are able to provide these services solely through private donations.
