New Hampshire Humane Society
Executive Director
(posted 08/09/2019)

Laconia, NH

Job Description
The New Hampshire Humane Society (NHHS), a strong and effective animal welfare nonprofit, is seeking an experienced and dynamic Executive Director in Laconia, NH. NHHS provides shelter for lost, abandoned and unwanted animals; finds responsible and caring forever homes; advocates for animals; implements education programs and promotes responsible pet ownership and the human-animal bond; and advocates to prevent cruelty to animals. Please see

The Organization
Founded in 1900, NHHS began in Nashua and operated in many diverse locations. It was moved to Laconia in 1935 and evolved into today’s innovative and full-service organization. In 2006, NHHS opened a brand new, state-of-the-art facility.

Shelter - In 2017, 1,250 animals (almost even numbers of cats and dogs) were received into shelter. NHHS offers each animal exceptional care and comfort, gentle behavioral support, and excellent medical treatment. All receive medical exams, and are spayed/neutered. Other surgeries and dental procedures are provided as needed. In addition, NHHS provides community animal care. In 2017, this included three low-cost rabies/microchip clinics, 150 low-cost spay/neuters and 228 rabies vaccines.

Adoption - NHHS has the 4th highest adoption rate in New England, with 985 animals adopted and 185 returned to their owners in 2017. Though only 16% of people nationally go to a shelter for their next pet, NHHS has an adoption rate hovering at 90%.

Education/Volunteer Support - New Hampshire Humane Society provides innovative education and volunteer programs. Dedicated volunteers participate with school programs and children’s groups in the Lakes Region through age appropriate, interactive activities and literature to learn about animal care. Children in grades K-6 who are able to read at any level come with an adult partner into the shelter to read to the cats in one of two cat social rooms, providing quiet, kind and loving human interaction and companionship. These rooms were expanded by the Catio Project, the creation of a screened, three-season extension and the building of a full-screened two-room gazebo provided by generous donors with the support of volunteer architects and builders in 2017.

NHHS is a local, stand-alone nonprofit that does not receive funds from national animal welfare organizations. Generous donors support NHHS through their philanthropy, and volunteers raise money for shelter operations through community events. Philanthropy also supports a pet food pantry, and volunteers provide animal care such as dog walking, foster care, cleaning and maintenance, and assistance in the kennel or laundry room.

Prevention of Cruelty – NHHS provides guidelines for owners who need to surrender their pets and receives animals who can no longer be cared for. NHHS also collaborates with local police departments and the animal control officer in cases of neglect and abuse.

New Hampshire Humane Society employs 25 full-time staff with an annual budget of $1.2 million. The Executive Director will work with a strong and experienced four-person management team. A volunteer Board of Directors of nine members governs the vision, strategic direction and operations of NHHS.

The Position
