Many of our animals come to us with health issues or need to be spayed or neutered. This means our vet bills keep coming in! Almost all of our donations are used to pay for vet costs. When someone adopts a dog or cat from GDHS, they are spayed/neutered, up to date on all their vaccinations, had necessary dental work, are on heartworm preventative, have received a health check from our veterinarian and are healthy, happy pets!
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.

MAY is National Foster Care Month, and we wanted to take this opportunity to highlight an exciting way to help animals in need. If you have the capacity to add a temporary furry friend to your household, becoming a pet foster parent is a great way to pitch in. By fostering a dog or cat, you’ll help pave the way for that animal to find a loving home.
At the GDHS, we rely heavily on our foster caregivers, who create “a shelter outside of our shelter” in their homes for animals who are not quite ready for adoption. Foster caregivers provide these animals with the time and attention they need while preparing them to find forever homes.
If you’re in the Greater Derry area and would like to find out more about fostering for the GDHS, Inc., please email us at : email@example.com or call us at 603-434-1512.
