Adoption Program

  • All animals visit with the doctor, are tested for incurable diseases, spayed/ neutered, vaccinated, wormed, and readied for their new homes.
  • To better promote lifelong relationships, the shelter staff works to match the lifestyles of humans and animals.
  • The Conway Area Humane Society offers shelter, medical care, and love to every animal. The shelter receives owner-surrendered animals to give them a second chance.


Surrendering an Animal

  • If you can no longer keep a dog or cat, please call us to discuss 603-447-5955
  • Animal surrenders require an appointment, please do not bring an animal for surrender without prior approval, as we may not have space to accommodate you.
  • Please consider what is most humane for your animal before surrendering. If they cannot safely greet strangers, this is not an appropriate place for them to find a new home.
  • If you are considering rehoming your animal while having them still live in your home and would like advice on how to do that, we are happy to assist by sharing the animal and your contact information on our social media sites, and provide you with guidance on finding a great home.


Adoption Services

  • CAHS Adopting FamilyStaff and volunteers work together through training and socialization to bring out the best in all the animals and enhance their chances for adoption.


 Safe Haven Program

When people fall on hard times, we are there to help them keep their animals. Our Safe Haven Program allows for a short term stay for your animals at the shelter if you have a medical emergency or short term procedure, a house fire, or are a victim of domestic violence. We also have a dog and cat food pantry to help out in hard times. All you have to do is ask.
