Assisted is much appreciated

Two weeks ago, the Humane Society for Greater Nashua was involved in the rescue and release of 105 dogs from a hoarding and breeding situation in Bradford. Due to the squalid conditions, the dogs were removed by personnel from the Humane Society for Greater Nashua, Pope Memorial SPCA, the Bradford Police Department and state officials. Forty-nine of the dogs were transferred to our Humane Society in Nashua. There were a number of pregnant females in the assorted Golden Retriever and Lab mixes. Currently, there are more than 60 dogs under our care here in Nashua. Even though we offer a much better environment than their original surroundings, most are scared and have never walked on a leash. It is our hope that with time and our care, these dogs will adjust to a normal life.

There have been so many generous supporters who have donated either funds or their time to assist us in this endeavor. Many of our longtime donors have provided support and in-kind supplies, and there have been many first-time contributors as well. Alvirne High School veterinary students provided grooming services to a portion of the dogs in our care and Good Mojo Dog Center in Milford continues to provide members of their staff as routine volunteers.

We are grateful to all of you who continue to support our efforts to provide quality care for those animals in need. Our daily routine continues as we not only care for these new rescues, but also our everyday releases and strays from the surrounding communities. More than 3,000 animals come through our doors each year. As we move forward and look to find good homes for those rescued, we hope all will eventually be settled in their forever homes. This is made possible thanks to all of you.
