GIVING ANIMALS A BETTER TOMORROW

Countless animals are abused, neglected and abandoned each year. Together, we can give them a better tomorrow.   

Our MISSION

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 the 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 over two decades, the shelter has helped provide care and find loving homes for over 25,000 animals.

If you're interested in adopting a dog. Come during our open kennel hours Saturdays from 12-3pm. Available dogs will be in our outdoor play yards to be viewed. Our canine team will assist with any questions and discuss our adoption process. 

Due to Covid 19 we are doing adoptions based on appointment only. Please call the shelter 603-628-3544 with any questions.
