NHSPCA rescues 37 neglected farm animals in Stratham


STRATHAM - Some farm animals are hoping to find a better home after they were rescued by the NHSPCA on Tuesday.

The Field Services Division of the NHSPCA responded to a request to remove animals in reference to animal cruelty.

Four horses, six alpaca, six goats, one cat, three chickens and 14 ducks and geese were rescued.

Because there were so many animals, the NHSPCA staff in attendance, three staff members and two volunteers, needed to take two trips.

All of the animals were voluntarily surrendered except for one horse and one goat.

The animals will be examined by an NHSPCA veterinarian in Stratham and because of prolonged neglect, the road to recovery could be long and expensive.

“This is a very sad situation,” said Lisa Dennison, Executive Director of the New Hampshire SPCA. “I am proud of our team of staff and volunteers who were prepared to do whatever was needed to end the suffering of these animals, working late into the night in difficult circumstances.”

The NHSPCA is asking for the public’s assistance in caring for this new group of rescued animals. If you would like to help with the cost of care and to help insure their recovery, make a donation here.
