Happy Dogs of New England
About the Animal Shelter
We are licensed by the State of New Hampshire Department of Agriculture and are a NH non-profit incorporation. We are a small, foster-based group. We have the dogs in our homes, learning their temperament and treating them like family. Our main goal is to save dogs from shelters in the south, mainly, and to find them wonderful homes in the New England area. We use various transport methods to recieve our dogs, including transporting them ourselves and also paying an independent transport company.
Shelters Service Area
We serve all the New England states, including VT, ME, NJ, NY, NH, MA, but most of our adoptions are in MA and NH.
Pre-qualified adopters can meet our pets either at foster homes or at our PetSmart events. Our adoption fees are $350 for dogs and $425 for puppies. Each adopter must sign a contract. We have 100% takeback policy, as we want our dogs back if it isn't a right fit. However, we strive to help the adopter find just the right dog and to find our dogs just the right homes.
Meet the Pets
We are at PetSmart in Manchester, NH about every other Saturday. Otherwise, pre-approved adopters who have filled out an application and have had a phone interview can arrange a time with the foster to see the dog in their homes.
