Animal Rescue League of New Hampshire

2020 Goals:

Raise $1.2 million to support the Animal Rescue League of New Hampshire’s (ARLNH) programs: adoption, re-homing, humane education, animal cruelty investigation, community outreach, animal care and sheltering, community engagement, and community education which assist 2,000 animals every year. Employing one of only three shelter-based animal cruelty investigators in the state, the ARLNH is able to help people who love their pets, but are currently struggling to care for them with programs such as: a pet food pantry, low-cost spay/neuter clinics and a Companion Animal Assistance Fund for one-time, non-emergency medical needs so that they can remain in their loving homes.

Fundraising Events:

The ARLNH has four major fundraising events each year. Events include: Paws For Wine, Paws on the Pavement 5K, Howl-O-Week 5K and Distiller’s Showcase of Premium Spirits (a New Hampshire Liquor Commission Event that we are the grateful beneficiary of). In addition to four major fundraising events, the ARLNH hosts many smaller events throughout the year. Events Include: Bunny Yoga, $5,000 Cash Raffle, Bark & Brew and Bow Wow Bedford. Throughout the year, organizations and individuals conduct fundraising events for which we are the designated beneficiary.

Giving Opportunities:

Our organization is funded primarily through development activities that include: individual and corporate donors, fundraising events, grants and legacy giving. About 20% of our funding is from program fees, such as adoptions. We receive no federal or state funding. Opportunities for giving include one-time donations, monthly giving, transport sponsorship, business partnership, planned giving and our Medical Miracle Worker program.

Volunteer Opportunities:

With 285 volunteers donating 17,377 hours in 2018 alone, ARLNH Volunteers are part of a dedicated team who are committed to helping animals find and stay in their forever homes. We value the extraordinary work and loyalty of our volunteers and could not provide the comprehensive care that the animals so deserve without them. The ARLNH provides diverse opportunities to contribute and provides training to volunteers to continuously expand their skill set and stay current with our animal protocols. Volunteer opportunities include event support, animal kennel cleaners, shelter cleaners, laundry, maintenance, animal enrichment, administrative support, facilities and trail maintenance.
