The Greater Derry Humane Society, Inc. rescues animals and places them in permanent loving homes. We do not maintain a shelter; instead, all of our rescued animals are kept in foster homes until we can place them. We have a no-kill policy.
We are an all-volunteer, non-profit 501(c) organization. We rely on donations and fund raisers. Because we are staffed solely by volunteers, please have patience when communicating with us. We promise to reply as quickly as possible!
Besides rescuing and placing animals, we work to prevent animal cruelty and educate the public.
Come and see us at the Derry Farmer's Market each Wednesday afternoon from 3 to 6 pm.
We have tee shirts, tote bags, bandana's and home made dog treats for sale!
We would love to see you!
We are getting excited for DerryFest 2014! We hope that you will join us on 9/20 at MacGregor Park from 10-5. We have been getting some really great donations from sponsors located all over the greater Derry area. Click HERE to learn more about our terrific raffle sponsors!
