The Concord SPCA was founded in 1910 to relieve suffering and prevent cruelty to animals and to educate society on the importance of being just and compassionate to all living things.
In the 1930s, the agency was one of the original five agencies to form the Community Chest, which has since grown to today's active and highly successful United Way of Merrimack County. Our agency remains a part of the United Way as a designated agency.
Our original structure was basically a chicken coop to provide temporary shelter to animals in need. Today we have a 2000 square foot shelter with additional administrative space in a separate building on the property.
Our past history reflects a different philosophy of sheltering that was based on animal shelter serving as "warehouses" for homeless animals. Today, our shelter is truly a shelter, with all that word implies in providing safety from the world around us. It is a warm and caring facility for animals in transition, where staff find a loving home for all adoptable animals, no matter how long it may take. And our mission, while basically the same as that back in 1910, is interpreted to require not only on-site care of animals but an active involvement in the community that supports us by serving as a resource to all pet guardians and as an educational voice for our youth. Our programs and services reflect our involvement, our commitment, and our vision.
