General Mission: Above the Notch Humane Society is a no-kill humane society that exists to provide protection for unwanted or abused animals in Littleton and the surrounding areas of northern New Hampshire and Vermont. The Society also has a responsibility for public education in the areas of animal care and welfare.
Means for Accomplishing the Mission
1. Ongoing Programs:
- Assist in the placement of stray or unwanted animals.
- Provide medical treatment for stray or abused animals.
- Sponsor obedience classes for behavior management of pets.
- Promote regular low-cost spay/neuter and rabies clinics.
- Develop working relationships with local veterinarians.
- Support foster care where appropriate.
2. Long Range Planning:
If practical, future plans may include building a shelter to house homeless animals. This would be a no-kill facility. However, if an animal is deemed unadoptable, due to behavioral or medical reasons, euthanasia could be employed as a last resort.
