My name is Buddy and I am a handsome white tiger male kitty that was living on my own outside for at least 4 years. A nice lady was feeding me and I was doing the best I could to survive on my own. The streets weren't too kind to sweet Buddy, but he's a strong kitty cat and Animal Allies stepped in to rescue him. He has come a long way since first being at the center and is a little nervous sometimes around quick movements and people he doesn't know. One he gets to know you and trust you, he is fine. Just go slow and have patience and you will see how much he loves to be loved. Buddy likes gentle pets and rubs and when he hears the kitty treats shaking, his ears perk up and he comes running. Buddy has been through so much in his life and he has now come so far. He will make a great addition to the right family. If you have some time and patience, please consider opening your home and heart to this great boy. Come meet Bud and all his friends at the Animal Allies Center, 476 Front Street, Manchester on Tuesday evenings 6-8 or Sat/Sun 12-3. You can also fill out an online application at animalallies.org He is up-to-date on shots and his adoption fee is $50.

Doris Hood, More than Special
A kinder soul you will never meet
Gentle, loving, forever sweet
A special friend, a heart so true
Always knowing just what to do
If a tear you shed, she would wipe it away
If you were down, she would brighten your day
If you were scared, she'd calm your fear
If you needed a friend, she would always be there
A total giver of everything good
Giving her all as only she could
One of a kind in every way known
Her caring nature would always be shown
Two or four legged, stranger or friend
Doris would help you, her hand she would lend
Whatever it was that you needed to do
Her huge heart of gold would help you get through
How can it be that our angel is gone?
We need her with us so we can go on
Goodbye my dear friend though we part for a while
In my heart I hold close your beautiful smile
I will watch for your spirit it will be here I know
And when it's most needed is when it will show
And until that sweet day when we meet once again
I will honor your memory, my dear special friend
A Christmas Wish

How to Help Animal Allies: "Join the Fight!"
We gladly welcome new members! Our goal cannot be reached alone, and it is YOU that will make the difference. Just fill out our short questionnaire and show your support today!
We can always use help with our many endeavors. We need volunteers to help return phone calls and provide the necessary information to those inquiring about low-cost spay/neuter programs available to them. We need volunteers in the area to help drive the patients that are to be spayed and neutered to the vet.
We are always looking for volunteers who can help us assess stray cat colonies and assist with trapping . Foster homes are always in high demand, especially in the spring, when there are too many feral kittens for the few regular foster homes that we have. Taming feral kittens is fun and very rewarding, especially when you see them come around and turn into little loves and go into their new forever home because you took the time to care. Don't be afraid to take the step and call us for more information. Experienced volunteers are readily available every step of the way to assist you with any fostering or other kind of volunteer work you may choose. We need people who have warm barns that can take feral cats that we assist who cannot be returned to their area. We are always looking for volunteers to help with our tabling events, posting literature and fundraising so we can help more animals. There are currently just a few very special, dedicated people doing this work, and they could use a hand! Please volunteer .
Among the many services that we provide, our focus is on locally ending animal suffering due to overpopulation by providing spay/neuter services to those in need. Since its inception in 1994, Animal Allies has assisted thousands of people in New Hampshire with spaying or neutering their pets by acting as a referral resource, locating affordable spay and neuter programs for people with limited finances.
Through the extreme generosity of Cynthia Davis and family our dream of having our own building has been realized. Our Center is located at 476 Front Street in Manchester, New Hampshire.
At our Center, we offer educational workshops and informative presentations from a variety of area animal advocates on all types of issues related to animals and provide resources and action tips to anyone interested in helping our furry, feathered, fur-less, scaled, friendly, feral, tame, (you get the picture) friends! We will have a different theme each month focusing on one specific animal cause.
We have wonderful cats available for adoption. Cats that have been rescued off the streets and are looking for their forever home. Formerly feral kittens that have been fostered, socialized, tamed and spayed/neutered are available as well.
Regular hours at the Center are Saturdays and Sundays from noon - 3:00 pm and Tuesday evenings from 6:00 - 8:00 pm. Our Center is run strictly by volunteers with no paid staff, as we have always run our organization in the past, with every penny continuing to benefit the animals directly. We are always looking for more volunteers to help out, so please feel free to fill out an application online.
Directions: Take exit 6 off of 293 (Amoskeag St.). Keep right at the fork and continue toward Amoskeag Rotary. At second light, bear right onto Front Street. The Center is located approximately 1/2 mile on the left (purple building with lime green trim).
About Animal Allies of Manchester, NH
Animal Allies was founded in 1994 with the notion that a small group of dedicated individuals could truly make a difference. We saw the suffering of animals in the greater Manchester area and knew that through education and a little hard work, we could help to make their futures just a little bit brighter.
Strength in Numbers to Stop Suffering
We share a common respect and concern for all animals and we oppose cruelty in any form. We believe that all animals are entitled to the basic right not to suffer as so many of them silently do. We also believe there is strength in numbers and that together, we can stop the silent suffering.
