• Companionship

    Sometimes you find the right one.
    Sometimes the right one finds you.

  • Compassion

    When you give to an animal in need,
    You get so much more in return.

  • Our Best Kept Secret

    NH Humane Society offers pint-size volunteer
    opportunities and programs for children ages 5-16.

Our Mission

New Hampshire Humane Society is all about second chances. We are dedicated to finding loving families and providing temporary shelter and care for lost or abandoned animals. We advocate for the humane and kind treatment of animals. We offer educational programs, provide community services, promote responsible pet care, and honor the human-animal bond. We work tirelessly to prevent cruelty to animals and forge a more humane and kind community.


Finding responsible and caring forever homes. Provide shelter for lost, abandoned and unwanted animals.


Our wonderful volunteers help to keep our shelter running strong and provide our animals with much needed socialization.


Our shelter is a community resource and we count on the community to help keep us going.
