HSFN is a thriving animal shelter serving the 16 communities of Greater Nashua, consisting of over 216,000 people and their pets.
Our services include:
Community Rabies Clinics:
Owned cats and dogs are welcome and served on a first come first served basis. Dogs must be on leash, no flexi leads please, and under owner’s control. Cats must be in a secure carrier. Animals that appear ill will not be vaccinated.
All rabies vaccine certificates will be written as one year certificates unless the owner presents a signed, current rabies certificate for the dog or cat at the time of the clinic. Rabies tags alone will not be sufficient proof of a rabies vaccine. New certificates for animals with signed, current rabies certificates will be written as three year certificates. These clinics are open to pet owners and pets of any local community. $15 per vaccine for cats or dogs. No appointments are needed. Clinic guests as served on a first come first served basis.

Dog Transport Program
Currently in its 8th year and going strong. Over 4,000 transport dogs and puppies have been adopted from HSFN. This life-saving program is a partnership between our shelter and shelters/rescue groups in Mississippi, North Carolina and Texas. These dogs would likely be euthanized if they had stayed in those shelters due to overcrowding. To see our dogs currently available for adoption, please click here.
Low Cost Vaccine Clinics
We host a low cost clinic every Wednesday for owned cats and dogs whether they need a single vaccine or a full set of vaccines. Preventative medicines will also be available for purchase. For more information, click here.
Low Cost Spay/Neuter Clinic
Held every other Tuesday at our facility owners are welcome to schedule an appointment for their pet. At this time we are only providing spay/neuter services for male and female cats and male dogs. For more information, click here.
Classes for both puppies and adult are held at our facility and are small providing very personalized training. There is a discount if the dog was adopted from our shelter. For more information, click here.
Cremation and Burial Services
Families may work with our cemetery coordinator for the private cremation of their pet or choose burial in Proctor Animal Cemetery, located on our shelter property. Please click here for more information.
