We are happy to be able to offer tours of our facility to members of the public! Come see our newly expanded campus and get a behind-the-scenes look at how we help pets and people in our community.
Tours are let by trained staff or volunteers to explore our adoption and animal care areas and provide information about our day-to-day shelter operations, special programs, daily animal care, the importance of spay and neuter, animal behavior, safety, disease control, and our newly expanded campus. All tours are moving tours covering the buildings and some of the campus grounds. Tour guests will need to navigate through rooms, doorways of different sizes and small spaces. Most spaces are accessible to walkers and wheelchairs.

Note about Youth Groups: Public tours do not have a Humane Education component. Youth, scout, homeschool, camps, clubs or classroom activities can be organized through the Humane Education team.

The New Hampshire SPCA is a Visitor Friendly facility! You do not need to sign up for a tour in order to visit our adoption center and see the adoptable animals. Members of the public are welcome to visit the shelter any time during regular business hours. Current hours of operation can be found here: https://nhspca.org/hours-and-location/
We gratefully welcome in-kind donations to help care for the animals. Before you begin collecting donations, please review our Wish Lists to ensure we are able to use the items you collect and bring in: https://nhspca.org/wish-list/
Suggested monetary donation: $10 per tour guest.
Please note that all animals remain safely in their kennels or enclosures during shelter tours for the safety of the public and the animals in our care. Your group will see many animals as part of the tour, but hands-on interaction will not be possible. We cannot guarantee how many or what type of animals will be viewable on a tour. As this is a shelter with animals available for adoption, the population changes daily.
We welcome anyone interested in adopting an available animal they have seen on the tour to complete an adoption application separately from the tour.
