At the New Hampshire SPCA, we respect and value diverse life experiences and heritages. We believe that by creating a culture that ensures that each person is seen, heard, valued, and empowered to succeed, we are better.   We’re committed to modeling diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging through our planning, actions, and policies.  Through these efforts our organization will more fairly represent all the individuals who work, volunteer, adopt, visit our campus, and support our cause.

Individuals with varied backgrounds, skills, ideas, and personal stories naturally come together within the New Hampshire SPCA, uniting behind the common mission of saving the lives of companion animals. The leadership of the NHSPCA believes that establishing a framework to enhance and maximize the benefits of such diversity, and to encourage further growth of equity and inclusion within the organization, will deepen mutual understanding among individuals and further the mission of the agency.

As we work toward a more compassionate society where all individuals and animals are respected and valued, we have much work ahead of us. We pledge to advance each year in creating a culture where all constituents feel an ever-present sense of belonging.

The NHSPCA is an equal opportunity employer committed to extending the same values to each other; our staff and volunteers lifting each of them up to be their best and most authentic selves. We are dedicated to fostering an environment where people from all backgrounds and lived experiences thrive and belong.


  1. We recognize that each of us is different and we welcome all who believe in our mission.
  2. We believe that by further diversifying our board, staff, volunteer and support community, we will bring forward voices that may not otherwise be heard or involved in our mission.
  3. We acknowledge that we will make mistakes as human beings as we work toward a common understanding and committed action.
  4. We acknowledge that this is a journey and that the first step is to begin.

We have established a Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Belonging Committee to present ideas, share resources, and provide guidance as we strive to break down barriers to equality.  We welcome your feedback, and will provide updates here on our progress.  Please send your comments to
