Kids HERO Program, Thursday, July 26
10-11am here at the Humane Society

Our HERO Program is for kids ages 5-10. It’s a hour long program here at the Humane Society and each session is a different topic.  The July 26th program will focus on being kind to animals and how kids can help our pets awaiting adoption. A parent or guardian must stay here, at the Humane Society, with their child during the program. Spaces are limited.  To register your child, please send an email asap! Our Hero Program is only offered during summer break and school vacation weeks.

August Events

Reading to Rescues, Sunday, August 12

Does your child really love cats and rabbits? Does he/she need additional time practicing their reading skills? If you’ve answered yes, then please come be a part of our Reading to Rescues. It’s held on the second Sunday of every month from 1-3. Kids ages 5 and up are invited to participate and parent(s) must stay to supervise their child. You are welcome to bring your favorite book or read one of ours. Kids will receive a certificate to note their time spent reading. Questions, please send an email.  The September  session will be held on Sunday, September 9.

Fall Events

Wags to Whiskers Festival, Saturday, September 15, 11am to 3pm on the ball fields at the Anheuser-Busch Brewery in Merrimack

Tickets on sale starting in August for this fun family & dog event.

Don’t miss this great day out for you and your dog! We’ll have an agility demonstration (and a few pieces of equipment that your dog can try), and other dog demos, plus many dog friendly vendors with giveaways and samples, a kids fun zone with carnival style games and prizes for the little ones, and of course food and beer available for purchase. (Fear not, there is a ‘Kitty City’ tent also).  Did we mention we’ll also have dogs there for adoption? The money raised supports the pets at the Humane Society awaiting adoption.

Walk for Whiskers, Saturday, October 27 at Mine Falls Park in Nashua.

Walk registration opens at 10am with Walk start at 11am.   All proceeds to benefit our pets awaiting adoption!

You will have your choice of a 3K and 5K route for you, your dog, and family. Not to worry, this is not a race; it is a walk at your own pace.

Walkers who have raised at least $200 per adult or $100 per child in walk pledges will be eligible for a goodie bag filled with swag, an event t-shirt and the lunch that follows the walk.

On-line registration for our Walk will open by mid-summer.
