Big News! Matchmaking & Adoptions by Appointment!

UVHS is now open for adoptions by appointment!
Your adoption on your schedule – it’s a win for you, for staff well-being, and of course, for the animals!

Please view available animals on our website. If you see an animal who interests you,

give us a call to answer some matchmaking questions and begin your adoption journey.

Adoptions are done on first come, first served basis.

Phone number: 603-448-6888. Our small staff has a lot of animals to care for so please leave a message.

Messages are checked frequently throughout the day but we do not have a dedicated receptionist.

Programs for the Community Include:

Stray animal housing and reunification

A free pet food pantry at the shelter

Monthly Spay/Neuter Clinics

Partnerships with human service agencies to provide pet food for their pantry clients

Emergency boarding for the pets of families experiencing crisis or illness

Trap/Neuter/Return (or adopt)
