Hi. My name is Beamer and I've lost track of how many days I've been here at the shelter. I am the longest term cat at the shelter so I have seen lots of other cats come and go, but no one has taken me home yet. I used to live outdoors and I really love the warm beds and yummy food they offer at the shelter. When I lived outside I didn't spend much time with people, so I am still getting used to them. I often hang out on a high shelf where I can watch everything going on. I get scared when people I don't know try to pet me and it feels safer up high. I want to get to know someone before I let them touch me. One of the "regulars" who feeds me every day has pet me a couple of times and I think it could be a good thing, but I am a little unsure. I keep a close eye on her when she comes in the room so I am not surprised if she tries it again. I am hoping she tries again soon so I can make up my mind if being pet is a good thing. What I really want is a quiet home. I'd be so much happier with one or two adults I can get to know and learn to trust. I find the little people to be a bit loud and scary, so I'd prefer an adult only home. I love other cats, so I hope my new home has a cat, or maybe we can bring one of my friends from the shelter home too?

Beamer is a 2-year-old boy who was transferred from a local rescue group. This young boy is pretty stressed in our shelter and needs a calm, patient home where he can settle in at his own pace. Some cats come to us happy and confident and do so well in our cat rooms that they get adopted right away. They love everyone they meet and expect everyone to love them. Beamer is not one of these cats. Beamer has experienced some level of trauma and stress in his past and is very nervous when new people approach him. We believe in second chances are confident the right person is out there waiting for him. He will take a bit to warm up and trust his new owner. If you think you are one of those people who can be patient and show Beamer how great it can be to be part of a family, please come in today and ask to meet him. He is certain to thrive in his forever home and show his true colors. It will be incredibly rewarding to be the person to help him learn to love again.

About Our Shelter...

Placement and Acceptance of Animals:

Our Adoption Center receives almost 4,000 unwanted, neglected or abused animals in our region each year. We provide each one with a warm bed, loving care and take every step possible to place them in the best possible new home.

Behavior Training for Pets:

All training classes at the NHSPCA are designed to help you develop the skills needed to make living with your dog pleasurable and much easier. The NHSPCA uses a method of training known as Positive Reinforcement. Whether you want to start your new puppy out on the right paw or work on improving your adult dog's behavior we have the perfect class for you and your four legged friend.

Humane Education & Community Programs :

The Humane Education program of the New Hampshire SPCA encourages children and adults to develop and express attitudes of compassion, kindness and respect for all living things. 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.

Cruelty Investigations & Advocacy:

Since 1872 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.

Developing a Solid Foundation for Animal Care:

Our donors are some of the most caring and dedicated individuals you will ever meet. You can become involved in financially supporting the NHSPCA in a number of ways: make a donation, participate in a fundraising events or include the NHSPCA in your will. These are just some of the ways you can support our efforts. Each gift, large or small, makes a difference in the life of an animal and the community we live in.

Volunteers Make All the Difference:

Our Adoption Process...

Helping You Make the Right Decision - Adoption Counseling
Our overall goal is to make sure the animal you adopt is well suited to your lifestyle and that you are ready for him or her. When you visit our adoption center our knowledgeable staff will be happy to answer any questions and help you choose the right animal. These Adoption Counselors will assist you by discussing your interests, needs and lifestyles and then matching them with those of the companion animals in our shelter. The Counselor will read through the adoption application materials with you so it may simplify things for you to have the form completed before you arrive.
