If you are witness to an act of animal abuse, please contact local law enforcement.

If you have information on suspected animal abuse or neglect, please call the Pope Memorial SPCA at 603-856-8756.

At the Pope Memorial SPCA our mission has always included preventing cruelty to animals and advocating for animals in need. We have trained staff who investigate claims of animal cruelty, educate the public on the proper care and lawful requirements of pet ownership and assist local law enforcement as needed.

NH law is very specific in its definition of animal cruelty, as listed under NH Criminal Code RSA 644:8. If you are uncertain if what you have witnessed meets the lawful definition of animal cruelty, you can still call and ask to speak to a trained SPCA staff member.

Thank you for your concern and your compassion for animals.
