New Hampshire Humane Society hosts September 17 Business After Hours



LACONIA — New Hampshire Humane Society will be hosting the Lakes Region Chamber of Commerce Business After Hours event on Wednesday September 17 from 4 p.m – 6p.m.

Guests attending the event will be invited to tour the facility located on Meredith Center Road, Laconia, including the renovated barn, now the Community Training Center, guided by key staff, volunteers and board members. Attendees are encouraged to meet some homeless animals, learn their stories, perhaps consider adoption, while learning about the revamped and revitalized programs under the new leadership of Managing Director Marylee Gorham.

Complimentary snacks and refreshments will be provided along with selection for door prizes including animal themed baskets with NHHS membership and merchandize.

New Hampshire Humane Society, the oldest shelter in the Granite State, has been in operation since 1900. Originally begun as a battered women's refuge, the organization, holding 501 3 c status, has grown into a full service animal welfare agency offering many programs to the community, including two low cost Spay Neuter programs, a pet food pantry, dog and puppy classes, education programs for children, birthday parties, volunteer opportunities, and pet adoptions, while providing care and comfort to the lost, abused, neglected and simply unwanted animals of the region.

No animal is ever euthanized for space or time constraints, rather safe harbor is assured for all adoptable creatures until adoption day, no matter how long the wait might be for a loving, forever home. New Hampshire Humane Society is privately funded receiving no financial support from national groups such as HSUS, ASPCA or United Way. Contributions from local donors, both individual and business, and further afield, ensure the mission continues, finding forever homes. Check www.nhhumane.org to view currently available pets, or call 603-524-3252.

For more information, contact the Lakes Region Chamber of Commerce at 524-5531. Registration is now open on the Chamber's website at www.LakesRegionChamber.org.

Dog Obedience Classes start Sept. 24 in Laconia

LACONIA — Laconia Adult Education will be offering Beginner and Advanced Dog Obedience classes starting on Wednesday, September 24. The Beginner Class will meet from 6-7 p.m. and the Advanced Class from 7-8 p.m.

Classes be taught by John and Carolyn Bancroft and will meet for eight weeks in the Woodland Heights Elementary School Gym in Laconia. 

No dog is too young, too small nor too old to enter the Beginner Dog Obedience Class. Dogs will learn to walk beside owners on the leash without pulling, come when called, sit, lie down, stand, and stay where you command it to stay. Owners will also learn how to communicate with their pets.

The Advanced Dog Obedience Class is designed for those dogs who are ready to begin training off a leash, learning verbal and hand signals. Dogs will learn to interact with other dogs, but pay attention to their owner's instructions. This class also prepares pet handlers and their dogs to enter the obedience trials and show rings.

All dogs must be current with Rabies and Distempter Shots. Documentation must be provided prior to registration. To register for the Dog Obedience classes call the Laconia Adult Education Office at 524-5712.
