About Abby Lange:  Abby was an important part of Pope Memorial SPCA for over 20 years. She served on the Board of Directors and volunteered in a variety of roles. For those of us who knew Abby, we regarded her as the most passionate and enthusiastic fan of the shelter that we had ever known. During her years on the Board she advocated for every opportunity to better serve the animals in our community. The Walk was especially near and dear to her heart, and she often bragged about all of the Walk t-shirts she had collected over the years by attending every single one. In 2019, Abby lost her battle with cancer. But before she passed, we had the chance to let her know that her legacy would include naming our Walk in her honor.

About the Organization

Pope Memorial SPCA of Concord-Merrimack County

On an annual basis, we care for more than 1,400 homeless pets in need. We also work towards solving root problems in our community that lead to pet homelessness and animal cruelty. We offer low cost pet vaccination clinics and a pet food pantry to support pet owners in our community. We offer Compassion Camps and school-based programs to children, giving them the opportunity to develop a compassionate and responsible awareness of pets. We work with local law enforcement to respond to animal cruelty complaints and to assist with investigations. As a result of this work, we often take in animals who have been neglected or abused and are in need of veterinary care and socialization. We are also active in legislative advocacy, working to improve the laws that protect pets in New Hampshire.
