Stocking Stuffers and Gifts
Pet Adoption Certificates
Give the gift of home to a shelter pet, and it will keep giving for years to come. Buy a certificate before the holiday, and let your friend or loved one pick out their new furry family member.
Need a gift for the person who has everything? Give an Alternative Gift from NHA! You can make a virtual purchase of many items such as vaccinations, food and spay/neuter procedures, in honor of that special friend or relative. To purchase a gift, please click here.
