Greater Derry Humane Society adoption events

On a sunny Saturday in early June, Greater Derry Humane Society held an adoption day at the Blue Seal feed store on Crystal Ave. in Derry. We had a wonderful turnout of both loving and lovable adoptable pets eager to find new homes, and interested people wanting to meet them.

Among the pets:
Rosco and Ginger
Ginger, a female rat terrier, and Rosco, a male Rottweiler. Ginger is a 8-year-old, affectionate girl who loves her walks, and would make a great companion for someone with small dog experience. Rosco is an extremely gentle boy who is great with kids and with other dogs. He's currently living with Ginger and another rat terrier, so he is comfortable and appropriate with small dogs as well as large ones.

Kody is a whippet mix, a little over a year old, who enjoys the company of other dogs but was very fearful of people. His foster home worked hard to build his confidence and trust, making him a much happier boy. And the great news is, Kody has found a home!

Zeke is a Patterdale Terrier/Lakeland Terrier mix, about twenty pounds of fun and energy. Zeke had a great time getting acquainted at the Adoption Day, and has also found a forever home.

But the day wasn't All Dogs, All The Time! We had cats, too!
Oliver, a fluffy boy clearly showing signs of "barn Maine Coon" ancestry so common in New England cats, was ten weeks old, and is now just about three months. He was happy to meet people, charm them, and show off.

Reecie with GDHS volunteers
Reecie, 3-year-old dilute calico girl cuddling with her foster dad, was also present to meet and greet potential adopters. She's a loving and easy-going girl who enjoys attention, and would fit easily into any household.

This wonderful adoption day is over, but we have future adoption events coming up. Greater Derry Humane Society will be participating in the Pelham Adoption Day, from 11am to 2pm, on Saturday, June 26th, at the Pelham Congregational Church, at the intersection of Rte. 11a and Main St., in Pelham, NH. And then on Saturday, July 3, from 10am to 1pm, we'll be having an adoption day at the Big Lots at Hood Commons, in Derry, NH. Come join us!
