About Our Shelter...
Founded in 1911, the New Rochelle Humane Society is a private, not-for-profit organization dedicated to providing individual loving care for lost, abandoned, injured, and mistreated animals. We service 17 communities in Westchester County and rescue over 500 dogs and 900 cats each year.
About 50% of the shelter’s funding is from services provided for animal control (rescuing homeless cats and dogs). The other 50% comes from donations, wills and bequests. We do not receive any state or federal funding.
Audited by a CPA each year, we make our tax filings available for public inspection and we meet all standards of the New York Philanthropic Advisory Service of the Better Business Bureau. Our Board of Directors is comprised entirely of volunteers.
