About Us

The National Humane Education Society (NHES), located near Charles Town, West Virginia, is a nonprofit animal welfare organization created by Anna C. Briggs in 1948.

Our mission is to “foster a sentiment of kindness to animals in children and adults.” 

NHES provides humane education, rescue and relief assistance for animals, and screened adoption services.

Through the Humane Education & Advocacy Department, we provide educational presentations to all ages and information services to members as well as to the general public. We are able to provide these services solely through private donations.
