Dedicated to caring for abandoned and homeless pets, protecting and advocating for pets in need, and promoting the humane treatment of all.
Our Vision Statement: The Concord-Merrimack County SPCA envisions our community to be a safe haven for animals, where the animal and human bond is nurtured, and all animals are treated with compassion and respect.
The Concord-Merrimack County SPCA is a special admission shelter, and we accept all adoptable animals from throughout Merrimack County. Our name reflects our geographic service area, not a governmental body. We are a nonprofit agency dependent on private donations and are not supported by tax dollars. As a special admission shelter, we accept adoptable animals in need, however, we do utilize an appointment policy to ensure there is space for all incoming animals.
We are the only full service humane organization serving Merrimack County and the Claremont area, and take in more than 1,500 animals a year. In addition to accepting owner surrenders and strays from the residents of the county, the agency contracts with 17 surrounding towns to serve as their animal control facility.
