Animal Services

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:

Animal Surrender

of stray pets found in local neighborhood or owned pets when a family can no longer care for the pet due to loss of jobs, income, home, illness or death of the pet’s owner. For more information about surrendering a pet, please click here.

Pet Adoptions

We are the destination locally to adopt a new dog, cat, kitten, puppy, or “small” animal which include ferrets, rabbits, hamsters, guinea pigs, or reptiles. To see our adoptable pets, please click here for more information.

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 on Mondays 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. All pets must be between the ages of 4 months and 7 years old to receive spay/neuter surgery at our clinic. For more information, click here.

Dog Transport Program

Currently in its 10th year and going strong. Over 6,000 transport dogs and puppies have been adopted from HSFN. This life-saving program is a partnership between our shelter and shelters/rescue groups in Arkansas, North Carolina, Texas and Puerto Rico. 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.

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.

Your Donation Matters

We are engaged in rescues and providing care to over 2,500 animals annually, but we can’t do it alone. Donations help assure we have a safe and healthy place for stray, unwanted and rescued animals and help us get them well and adopted. Please consider making a gift, thank you.
