Storytime with the animals (real ones!) at the NHSPCA. Tuesdays @10:30 + Thursdays @1pm.

Everyone knows that the New Hampshire SPCA is a loving community for pets awaiting adoption, but did you realize how much fun you can have there?

If you are an animal lover, the SPCA offers all kinds of opportunities to interact with the animals.

To start they welcome families with children ages 2-5 to visit the Humane Education classroom for story time with classroom animals! Reservations are required and space is limited.

We’re excited to be able to welcome guests back for in-person story time in our Humane Education classroom and will now be offering story time TWICE per week. Morning story time on Tuesdays (10:30-11:30 am) and an afternoon story time on Thursdays (1:00-2:00 pm). During story time, children will listen to a story about an animal, color a picture of an animal, and visit the animals in the classroom.

Currently, story time will require pre-registration and masks will be required for all attendees to comply with COVID-19 safety requirements. Each session will offer a total of 12 spaces, with a maximum of three “tickets” per family (one adult may bring up to three children). When signing up, please “purchase” one ticket for each child attending. Cost: $5 per child (max of 3 tickets per order). Register Here!

Animal Pen Pals
Or should we say PetPals!? Do you need some practice writing friendly letters? Are you missing all the news at the NHSPCA? More likely, are you missing all the animals? You choose an animal in our Humane Ed classroom to correspond with and we’ll send you a letter telling all about that animal. When you write back to that animal, we will read your letter and then write back to you! Letters may be exchanged through either email or postal service. When you sign up and choose your animal petpal, you will also receive a trading card featuring that animal friend. Cost: $20. Register Here!

Reading with the animals
Reading with the animals is back and is available for
children in grades 1-8! Whether your child loves to read, or they could use a boost of reading confidence, they are invited to join us at the NHSPCA to read to an animal. Cost: $10 per session. Register Here!

Whether you are in the market to adopt a family pet, or just show some love to those waiting for a happy home, the SPCA welcomes you. Me-ow!
