At the Manchester Animal Shelter, we believe all animals are deserving of life, respect and care. Our goal is zero-population-growth through spay/neuter programs and services that focus on education, medical care, fostering and adoption. Friends of Manchester Animal Shelter is a non-profit organization which started in 1996. The shelter takes in homeless, abused, and abandoned animals in the city of Manchester. We provide shelter, medical care, and spay/neuter to every animal that comes through our doors. In operation for nearly two decades, the shelter has helped provide care and find loving homes for over 20,000 animals.

Meet Our Sponsors & Friends


We depend on the support and generosity of the community, and we are grateful for anything you can do to help us care for Manchester’s sick, injured, and homeless animals. Though fundraising is critical to the continued success of our life saving programs, there are many other ways you can also help. Volunteer, donate food and supplies – you can even do business with our many Shelter Sponsors!
