The Animal Rescue League of New Hampshire recognizes the need to protect pets involved in domestic violence cases, as few shelters for humans have the ability to house animals, leaving victims to face the difficult decision to either leave their pets behind or remain in an abusive situation. As a result, many victims and their children often stay in abusive homes for fear of subjecting their pets to continued abuse if left behind.
Our ability to accept pets into this program depends on the population at the shelter at any given time and the understanding that the pets will be able to both physically and mentally adjust to living at the shelter.
