Program 1

Placement and Acceptance of Animals

At the NHSPCA we care for a wide variety of purebred and mixed-breed dogs and cats, as well as rabbits, guinea pigs, and many other small animals. The positive, comforting environment of our state of the art Adoption Center allows animals to thrive while they await new homes. In addition, our barn and pastures provides the best possible temporary home for horses and other farm animals, The NHSPCA also serves as a transfer station for injured or orphaned wildlife, placing these animals into appropriate rehabilitation sites. Humane Education Whether it’s a visit to the Adoption Center for a tour or having our Humane Education Coordinator come into the classroom, kids learn firsthand the responsibilities of caring for animals. For kids who want to be more involved with helping the animals, the NHSPCA offers after school clubs and volunteer programs. Community Programs and Resources Our ever-growing list of programs and workshops are a fun and interactive way to explore the interdependence between humans and animals while learning how to create a more humane community. Our knowledgeable staff are ready to help each person find the answers to the many questions that pet owners have and assist them with training and behavior issues. From rabies clinics to pet first aid workshops our list of programs and services is ever growing. Cruelty Investigations & Advocacy Animal cruelty investigation has been one of the cornerstones of the NHSPCA. Today our services encompass an even wider range of activities. In addition to investigating hundreds of reports of suspected animal neglect or abuse every year, our agent works with other humane organizations to develop and strengthen legislation that protects animals throughout the State of New Hampshire.
