Not having enough money to feed yourself, let alone your pets, can create a lot of anxiety in a person’s life. Priorities may create the thought for some, that the first thing they should do is “lighten the load.” Animals always seem to be the first reasonable choice. Often however, trying times can be temporary and, with a little assistance and time to think things over, a pet owner in need can make it through. Keeping animals in their homes benefits both the NHSPCA and the owner. An owner can keep their pet and the NHSPCA has more room for other pets in need.

By sharing food, we have developed a way to help a pet owner get through a tight patch in their lives. Our food share program can help keep a pet in their home.  If you need help feeding your pet, please contact us for more information.

Have Pet Food to Donate?

Due to Covid- 19 precautions, our shelter remains closed to visitors and we cannot accept in-person donations of food at this time.  We will gratefully accept donations of pet food through the mail only via Amazon, Chewy or FedEx. We will continue to  share these donations with local food pantries, as well as the animals in our care.  

Many people inquire about donating unwanted/unused food that they have already purchased for their own pets.   While we remain closed to in-person drop offs,   we suggest contacting the local food pantries directly.  Most are still taking in-person pet food donations.    Thank you for understanding and helping to keep our essential pet care workers safe! 


Here is a list of local food pantries that accept pet food donations.
