STRATHAM - The New Hampshire Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals has a special treat for those who adopt a homeless animal from their shelter in Stratham this week.
Their workers will dress as Santa's elves and deliver the new pet to your home on Christmas morning.
"They are perfect gifts and cherished," said Lisa Dennison, Executive Director of the NHSPCA?
In the past week, they've had at least 40 pets adopted from the shelter. Most of them are Christmas gifts for children or for other family members.
"My fiancé lost his cat two years ago. This cat is for him," said Nikita Gunter of Newmarket, who adopted a cat named Carly for delivery on Christmas morning.
Last year, for the first time, the NHSPCA delivered Christmas pets on December 25th, and it was a big success. Even though the Society used to discourage giving pets as gifts, they've decided the homeless animals, which include mice, guinea pigs, rabbits, and horses, make perfect Christmas gifts - as long as the adopting party understands the responsibilities that go along with adoption.
