ARLNH Limited Admissions Shelter

The Animal Rescue League of New Hampshire is a Limited Admissions Shelter, following what Maddie's Fund refers to as a "no-kill" philosophy. We DO NOT euthanize animals to make room for more. We simply stop taking in new animals until we have room.


The ARLNH is open to all residents of NH, and actively serves the towns of Amherst, Auburn, Bedford, Brookline, Candia, Dunbarton, Francestown, Goffstown, Hollis, Hooksett, Litchfield, Londonderry, Lyndeborough, Manchester, Merrimack, Milford, Mont Vernon, New Boston, Peterborough, Wilton, and Windham.


Each year, we serve over 2,200 animals that come from many different situations, including animal cruelty and neglect.


Maddie's Fund is a widely recognized animal welfare leader. It is California-based pet rescue organization foundation that has the goal of creating a world where all healthy & adoptable animals find new homes.
