AnimalKind, a nonprofit 501 (c) (3) animal welfare organization was founded 20 years ago by Katrin Hecker, a registered nurse who was determined to end the plight of stray cats and kittens that were overrunning the streets and alleys of Hudson.

Today AnimalKind is a nurturing community force. 

Every year we save and serve over 5000 animals in need through various programs, reducing suffering and euthanasia as well as promoting Humankind through AnimalKind.
