Animal Rescue League of New Hampshire


2021 Goals:

Raise $1.03 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 — assisting 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 clinic and a Companion Animal Assistance Fund for one-time, non-emergency medical needs, so that they can remain in their loving homes.

Fundraising Events:

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the ARLNH has pivoted to virtual fundraising events. In 2021, we are looking forward to a Virtual Auction in April, a summer celebration of the work of our shelter and our fall Howl-O-Ween 5K, which we hope will take place at the Northeast Delta Dental Stadium in Manchester. In addition to these fundraising events, the ARLNH will be hosting two $5,000 Cash Raffles as well as other small fundraisers. 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 donations, fundraising events, grants and legacy giving. About 20% of our funding is from program fees, such as adoptions. Opportunities for giving include one-time donations, monthly giving, transport sponsorship, business partnership, planned giving and our Medical Miracle Worker program.

Volunteer Opportunities:

With 226 volunteers donating 11,702 hours alone in 2019, ARLNH volunteers are part of a dedicated team who are committed to helping animals find and stay in their forever homes. 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. In 2021, the ARLNH is committed to continue providing diverse opportunities to help us meet our mission. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, many of these opportunities are remote, outside or on our trails.
