About Us

Celebrating Yesterday, Bettering Tomorrow

As we look back on our incredible 135-year history, we are reminded of just how important a role the Mohawk Hudson Humane Society has played in our community.
Founded in 1887, MHHS was at the forefront of protecting the most vulnerable members of our community – orphaned, neglected, and abused children.

MHHS soon expanded its charter to protect animals and continued to serve both until 1957. At that point, our focus shifted to entirely animals and the
crushing pet overpopulation crisis so prevalent during that time. Our extraordinary history has been marked by forward-thinking leaders with a vision for a more humane community for all of its members. How we wish those who began this journey could see how we have carried their hopes and dreams forward.


As an organization funded by donations, it is only through the generous support of caring donors like you that
we are able to provide care and healing for so many deserving animals.
