Anna C. Briggs 4th Annual Memorial Hike - Briggs Animal Adoption Center

Anna C. Briggs was the founder of The National Humane Education Society (NHES) which is the BAAC’s parent organization. Mrs. Briggs spent her life focused on making the world a better place for animals. She welcomed all of us to join her in creating a more humane world: “Join me on this important journey by … taking whatever steps you can take on behalf of cats and dogs ….”

This year, on November 5, 2023, twenty staff and volunteers will be hiking 5.05 miles to help raise funds to care for the many cats and dogs at BAAC.


We’d like to invite you to aide us in “taking thousands of steps” to save more animals—you can do it at your own pace in a location of your choosing! 

All proceeds will benefit the Briggs Animal Adoption Center, a program of NHES, a 501(c)(3) organization. 

On behalf of the animals, we thank you!
