If you are struggling to care for your pet, we are here to help.

When financial difficulties, behavioral problems and changing life situations arise, pet ownership can become difficult. We can help you review your options.

Reach out

If you are considering whether or not surrendering may be the right choice for you, give us a call. We can chat with you about your situation and let you know what other options you may have. Our knowledgable staff can provide suggestions for behavioral issues, provide resources, and refer you to programs that may be able to assist you. Call us at 603-472-3647 to speak with our team.

Courtesy Posting

If you can no longer keep your pet but time is not of the essence, courtesy posting may be best for your pet. We advertise your pet on the shelter's Petfinder page and adoptable animals page to assist you in rehoming your pet without having to expose them to the stress of a shelter. For more information about courtesy posting, call 603-472-3647 or email


Financial Difficulties

If financial difficulties are getting in the way of your ability to care for your pet, we may be able to assist. If you are looking for low cost spay or neuter, learn more about our spay and neuter clinics. If you are struggling to afford food for your pet, learn more about our pet food pantry. If you need financial assistance with a non-emergency, one time medical cost for your pet, learn more about our Companion Animal Assistance Fund.

Behavioral Help

If behavioral issues are making pet ownership difficult for you, there are resources available. We have a variety of handouts on different behavioral issues which describe training suggestions and solutions here. If you are looking for a trainer, we recommend reviewing this article on choosing a dog trainer. If your dog's behavioral problems are more severe, you may need to reach out to a veterinary behaviorist. You can also call the shelter at 603-472-3647 and our knowledgable staff may be able to give you suggestions or offer referrals.
