What our organization offers: 
Seasons in which we offer activities (select "All seasons" for all): 
MHHS is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that has been providing shelter for lost, abused and unwanted animals since 1887. The Society is the oldest and largest animal protection organization in New York's Capital Region, receiving an average of over 6,000 animals per year.

MHHS has been serving the community since 1887 by providing care for animals in need of shelter. We invite you to take a few moments to browse our site to learn more about our services. It is through your very generous support that we have been able to provide quality care for the animals of Albany, Rensselaer and other counties.

Mohawk Hudson Humane Society offers such diverse services as finding homes for animals, providing shelter for lost animals, offering assistance to owners of lost animals and microchipping. In addition, MHHS sponsors various community education and outreach programs throughout the year. Our field services include rescue and care of injured or distressed animals, investigation of reports of animal abuse and neglect, and enforcement of Agriculture & Markets laws. In addition to its on-site and field personnel, MHHS is assisted by a team of volunteers who help to support and maintain the health of animals residing at the shelter and participate in various fundraising and community activities.

To enrich the lives of animals and the people who love them.
