Magic. That is the only word that can accurately describe the work of Northshore Humane Society (NHS). When an animal that has never lived outside of a shelter is finally connected with a loving family waiting with open arms and finds a home, there is no greater joy. Especially when that animal almost didn’t pull through and has needed attention from a skilled medical team. Not only does NHS have a caring adoptions department, animal care staff and administrative team, they also have an experienced clinic staff. When you adopt a pet from the NHS shelter, you even receive discounted pricing at the clinic where you will have access to the best veterinary care at already competitive pricing.
Dr. Estelle, Director of Veterinary Medicine & Services, is the source of much of the magic at the NHS shelter and community clinic. She goes the extra mile for her patients and never misses a chance to teach her staff by helping them to learn and grow. She made Covington her home in 2005 and began working at NHS in 2010, where she aimed to better serve the community by helping homeless animals.
Another amazing source of magic at this clinic and shelter is its volunteers. These generous members of the community selflessly donate their time, often cleaning cages and giving baths to the animals. All of this with a smile on their faces and likely their own foster dog or cat in hand. Thank you for volunteering!
