The New Hampshire SPCA has been specifically addressing abusive domestic situations for more than 15 years. We have witnessed firsthand the threat domestic violence poses to pets.  To help eliminate that danger and to assure victims that their animals will be safe when they leave an abusive situation, the NHSPCA has a long established Safe Pet Program. This program provides victims of domestic violence free housing for their pets for an initial period of two weeks, the service is renewable, if needed, for an additional two weeks while the person or family seeks to resettle.
