NH SPCA gives back on Black Friday with discounted pets leading to more than 50 adoptions
STRATHAM - The New Hampshire SPCA opened their doors early this morning to those looking to extend their family this holiday season and at a discounted price.
With more than 200 animals - including dogs, cats, horses, and more - the shelter gave locals the chance to save a life at a price of their choosing.
"Home is very important to us. And I think adopting another family member this is the time to do that." Lisa from East Kingston said. "We thought better than going Christmas shopping, let's go dog shopping!"
From 9 on Friday morning until 4 p.m., the shelter was packed with people willing to adopt and bring in donations.
"We adopted our first cat so we just think to give a cat a loving home what better way to do it," said John Welch as he and his wife searched the shelter for a new family addition.
The New Hampshire SPCA alone takes in more than 2,500 animals every year and provides each one with a warm bed, medical care, and food- relying solely on community support.
"Feeding our cats and dogs alone is a few hundred dollars per week. The horses I'd say is probably around $500 a month to feed them and house them per horse, so it does get expensive for us," Foster Care Coordinator Jen Frey said.
With the success of their third Black Friday event, the shelter gave new homes to more than 50 animals, creating one of the busiest adoption days of the year.
