• 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

A significant part of our mission is about second chances. We're dedicated to finding responsible and caring forever homes and providing shelter for lost, abandoned and unwanted animals. We advocate for animals and speak for those who cannot speak for themselves. We implement educational programs and provide services to promote responsible pet ownership and the human-animal bond. And finally, we work tirelessly to prevent cruelty to animals.
