NH Robbery Leaves Animal Shelter’s Food Shelves Bare - Donations Welcomed
Animal Rescue League of New Hampshire (Bedford, NH), was robbed last night leaving the food shelves bare. The door leading into the Pet Food Pantry was ripped right off the hinges and over 500 lbs of dry dog and cat food were stolen, including 15 lbs of dog treats.
Founded in 1902, the Animal Rescue League of New Hampshire has dedicated over 100 years to not only providing shelter for homeless animals, but also ‘improving animal welfare in our communities by helping pets and the people who care for them.’
The Animal Rescue League of New Hampshire, which receives no state or federal funding and is almost entirely dependent upon donations, was awarded the Nonprofit Business of the Year by Business NH Magazine in 2012 and Best of NH winner in 2015.
As part of their mission to help owners, they provide temporary assistance to people who are struggling to feed their pets via their Pet Food Pantry.
Luckily, no pets have been reported injured or stolen. However, this robbery not only leaves the shelter with no food for their outreach Pet Food Pantry program, but they now are struggling to feed animals that they are providing much needed shelter for. The rescue league welcomes any possible food or monetary donations to restock their shelves and help repair the damaged doors.
