Areas NHSPCA Serves

The New Hampshire Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals is a community resource center bringing animals and people together. We provide adoption, education, investigation and sheltering services in a professional and compassionate way.

The NHSPCA is a non-profit organization (501c3) serving over 121 communities in the Seacoast of New Hampshire, southern Maine and northern Massachusetts. We receive no federal or state funding and rely solely on community donations and the sponsorship renewals of our Adoption Angel and Education Angel members to support our operations and care for the animals. We also depend on the generosity of more than 200 individuals who dedicate their time and talents to help the animals by volunteering.

NHSPCA's 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.

Please see our website for our adoption fees.


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:

Whether you are interested in direct animal care, special events, customer service or administrative work we can use your help. The NHSPCA Volunteer Program will give you the satisfaction of knowing that you are making a difference in the lives of all animals.
