Message From Our Director

Dear Friends,


Happy 2018! We cannot thank you enough for all your support in 2017! It was another outstanding year for NHA and our animals! Thanks to you, we placed so many animals in loving, caring homes, and NHA’s spay and neuter programs continued to be hard at work controlling pet overpopulation – a top priority for our agency! Our surgical teams performed a record number of surgeries last year, and they will continue to do everything they can to help animals and families in need.


2017 was a year focused on the needs of the community. The Homeless Commission asked NHA to assist the homeless population in caring for their animals in severe weather, so when under 25 degrees, Rover acts as a warming station set up next to the Metro shelters. This allows us to provide a safe, warm environment for the animals, while the pet owners sleep in a warm bed at night without worry. We were also honored and humbled again to be selected the “Best Non-Profit” and “Best Place to Adopt a Pet”, and we continue to maintain our 4-star charity rating from Charity Navigator, reassuring our donors that we are committed to being good stewards of your funding support.


Andrew Carnegie once said, “Teamwork is the fuel that allows common people to attain uncommon results.” The accomplishments of 2017 were only achieved by everyone: staff, our community, and our supporters all working together. We achieved uncommon results! Working together, we will accomplish much more in 2018.


On behalf of all the animals and families we serve, please accept my appreciation and thanks for your on-going support.


Warmest Regards,


Laura Chavarria, Executive Director
