2023 Goals:

In 2023, New Hampshire Humane Society is planning an expansion of our municipal partnerships so we can support even more of the region. We will also increase animal transport numbers so we can save more homeless pets from euthanasia. We will expand animal investigations, and we will continue to take aggressive action against abuse, neglect, and unethical breeding. The New Hampshire Humane Society team will also increase our programs and services to provide even more support for families seeking to adopt or who need help with the family pets they love. We have been and will continue to be a reliable and trusted resource for families who need us.

Fundraising Events:

The lifesaving work of New Hampshire Humane Society would not be possible without community support. Individuals attend events and donate, and generous regional businesses sponsor our public events and our community programs. That financial support allows us to reach more families and more pets who need our help. 2023 events will include a continuation of our New England Social Series (, an event series sponsored by Eastern Propane & Oil. We have also planned for the return of our annual Be a Hero 5k Run/Walk ( on Saturday, September 23, 2023, at Castle in the Clouds. New England’s official start of the golf season — New Hampshire Humane’s annual Compassion Tournament ( will be May 1, 2023. Find out more at

Giving Opportunities:

With thousands of animals coming through our doors, the demands and needs are intense at times. We always need crunchy cat treats, mini milkbones, small dog training treats and a variety of other supplies. You can reach out to us to find out the current needs by emailing Since most of our needs vary from animal to animal, financial support ensures we can get the medication, surgical needs or any specialty needs to get an animal back to health. For more information about how you can help, contact

Volunteer Opportunities:

We always need volunteers to assist with cleaning, walking dogs, giving the animals love and attention, or assisting with events and programs. Our key programs include our volunteer and foster programs, Telling Tails (reading to pets program), and Dog For a Day (our canine socialization program). Find out more at or email
