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-volunter, 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.
