On The Road, Saving Lives NHSPCA Vehicle at Farmers' Market 8/8

The New Hampshire Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (NHSPCA) will be bringing their mobile rescue, adoption and education vehicle to the Newmarket Farmers' Market tomorrow, Saturday, August 8th. This vehicle is the first of its kind in NH and is literally On The Road, Saving Lives. Outfitted with seventeen built-in, temperature controlled cages it transports animals safely in all situations such as rescue operations and to and from off-site adoption and humane education events. The animals are transported safely without being put under additional stress due to extreme heat or cold when the vehicle is being used for rescues.

This vehicle is also used as a mobile exhibit for children to tour while learning about animals. As an off-site adoption vehicle, the NHSPCA can go into communities without a humane agency and to people who might otherwise purchase animals from a pet store or on the internet.

Each animal pictured on the side of the van was adopted from the NHSPCA.

One of the dogs came from Hurricane Katrina, another was rescued from a hoarder in a Portsmouth parking lot and one of the cats came to the NHSPCA so severely injured that his leg was amputated to save his life. Each animal painted on the side of the van represents the thousands of animals the NHSPCA receives every year that find a second chance. Click on the photos to view the cats and dogs for adoption.

The Newmarket Farmers'Market is open Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. in The Stone Church parking lot through October 10th. The weekly vendors offer fresh and organic food choices.
