Friends of Kevin Pet for Adoption of the Day is Baxter

I’m Baxter, an older gentleman who might look a little grumpy, but is pure sweetness inside! I’m twelve years young, and while I’ve mellowed in my mature age, I still enjoy playing with my favorite toys from time to time. When I not playing, you can usually find me snoozing and lounging in one of the comfy beds here at HSFN. Since I am mellow most of the time I need a home with adults only. I have lived with other pets before though, and probably wouldn’t mind doing so again. I promise I won’t ask for much from you, and know that I’ll make my new family a wonderful companion. Come meet me, and while you’re at it give me some chin scratches if you don’t mind- they’re my favorite! The Humane Society is located at 24 Ferry Road- I hope to see you soon.


To adopt these pets, contact the Humane Society for Greater Nashua (HSFN), 24 Ferry Road, Nashua. Hours of operation are Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday noon to 5 p.m., and Saturday and Sunday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. The shelter is closed every Wednesday. Keep an eye at for more information, available pets, and to download applications. Or call (603) 889-2275 with any questions.

Friends of Kevin Pet for Adoption of the Day is Emmett

Hi everyone! I’m Emmett, a four year old Lab mix who is a picture perfect pup. I came to HSFN through a transport partner, and I just can’t wait to explore NH and all of the fun the area has to offer with my new family. Speaking of family, I absolutely love kids and I’ve lived with cats and adore them too! I’m a fun guy, but definitely have a mellow side, and really enjoy having snuggle time with staff and volunteers here. When I’m not hanging with my friends I am loud in my kennel, but it’s just because I’m trying to get your attention! Please don’t pass up the chance to meet such a fun dog like me just because of that! If you want a dog to add to your family (especially if you have kids and cats), then look no further. I’m here just waiting for you to make the first move. Like all of the pets at the Humane Society for Greater Nashua I am neutered and up to date on all of my vaccines.      


To adopt these pets, contact the Humane Society for Greater Nashua (HSFN), 24 Ferry Road, Nashua. Hours of operation are Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday noon to 5 p.m., and Saturday and Sunday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. The shelter is closed every Wednesday.
