Live Event: Join other animal lovers for a socially-distanced walk from the shelter on Sept. 20th. Pre-registration is required, attendance is limited, morning and afternoon walks available. Once your sign up to walk, you will receive an email offering the chance to reserve a spot for Sept. 20th until event capacity is reached.

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.
