Stratham, New Hampshire is the home of the New Hampshire Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals. The NHSPCA offers adoptable animals large and small, from dogs and cats to horses and rodents. It also offers obedience classes for adult dogs and puppies.
The NHSPCA adoption fees, which vary based on the age and type of animal being adopted, include services such as spaying and neutering, vaccinations and treatments, and a complimentary identification tag. Dogs and cats are eligible for microchipping prior to leaving the facility.
The non-profit organization prides itself on being an unlimited stay, open admission facility for all types of animals. On average, around 2,500 neglected or unwanted animals come to the NHSPCA per year.
The NHSPCA isn't affiliated with the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, which is located in New York. They depend solely on donations and volunteers for support in keeping the shelter up and running. Visitors and local residents can make one-time donations, monthly donations or donations in honor of a beloved pet directly through the NHSPCA website.
As of 2015, the shelter is located at 104 Portsmouth Ave in Stratham, and has adoption center hours every day but Wednesday. The site also hosts birthday parties on Saturdays and Sundays, where party guests can see the animals up for adoption and participate in games and crafts.
