February Events

Annual Have  a Heart Campaign,
Buy Yours Today!

Throughout February and March, we hope you’ll participate in our Have a Heart Campaign by buying a paper heart to show your support of our pets. Many local businesses are partnering with us to sell hearts and raise funds for the work we do to help homeless pets.

Each red heart represents someone in our community who has donated $1 towards the Humane Society and the gold hearts represent a $10 donation. Over 70 businesses and storefronts throughout greater Nashua participate in our Have a Heart campaign some really cover their walls with hearts. Each heart proudly displays the name of the donor’s name, the name of their pet, or also may bear the name of a beloved pet that has passed. The proceeds help us provide food, medical care, vaccines and shelter for the pets awaiting adoption. You can buy a heart at the Humane Society anytime we’re open. If your business would like to sell hearts, please email Noelle Schuyler, Assistant Director of Development.

HSFN Alumni Woof Pack Dog Walks

This is a free meet-up group for owners and their HSFN alumni pups who enjoy taking their dogs out to walk, run and romp at local dog-friendly places. Walking venues will range from easy to strenuous, with dogs either leashed or off-leash pending town leash laws and owner’s control. Detailed descriptions of the meet-ups will be posted so you can be sure the walk is appropriate for you and your dog. Learn more about this group on our page. You must sign an online waiver through and RSVP for the walk.
