Adoption Application/Fees

Thank you for considering adopting a pet from the Humane Society for Greater Nashua!


  • To help us make the adoption process go smoothly, please fill out and bring one of the following adoption applications with you.
  • Once here, you will meet with a trained adoption counselor who will talk with you about your expectations for a new pet. Our job is to match the right pet to your family and lifestyle.
  • Please note our policy is that adopters must be at least 21 years old to adopt a dog or at least 18 years old to adopt a cat from our shelter.
  • If you are interested in adopting a dog, we ask that all family members and any current family dogs come here to have an introduction with our dog before completing an adoption.

Please Note: While we welcome walk-ins, you may experience wait times due to staffing shortages while we assist other visitors.

We respectfully request that you complete a liability waiver prior to visiting our facility.
