About Us

The Animal Rescue League of New Hampshire is a non-profit organization, incorporated in 1904, with the mission to protect, rescue & adopt animals to the public. The ARL receives no Federal, State or United Way funds for support & is solely dependent upon fundraising events& private donations to support its cause.

We are a LIMITED ADMISSIONS shelter following 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. Each homeless pet will remain in our care until he or she finds a new home. We serve residents throughout New England.

Each year, this shelter helps approximately 2,000 animals by providing them a safe haven until loving, adoptive homes can be found for them. We also intervene in cases of animal cruelty.

In addition, we work hard to fulfill our goal of being "more than a shelter" to the community we serve by offering programs and services that improve the relationship between humans and animals. Examples include obedience training, humane education to children, and animal cruelty investigation.

In November of 2009 we entered into an affiliation with the Animal Rescue League of NH North (formerly the Conway Area Humane Society) and the League's interim Co-CEO's Lindsay Hamrick and Donna Nicholaides now have responsibility for the leadership of both organizations. We believe that together we can save more animals in NH than the shelters can help alone.
