Who We Are

The New Hampshire Animal Rights League works for the fair treatment of all animals, in New Hampshire and beyond. We are an all-volunteer organization, working on behalf of animals since 1977.

What We Do

We operate under the simple premise that animals are here with us, not for us. Animals exist for their own purposes, and their most basic needs — such as the need to avoid suffering — deserve the same consideration as is afforded to human beings.

Wild animals have a right to an environment in which to live, breed, and raise their young, free from harassment by humans.

Farmed animals have a right not be to treated as commodities, but as beings capable of feeling pain, fear, and joy.

Companion animals have a right to adequate food, water, and shelter, and opportunities to engage in natural behaviors.

Wild animals belong in the wild, not held captive in zoos, aquariums, or marine parks.

Lab Animals​

Animals have a right not to spend their lives in barren cages, awaiting the next painful experiment or procedure.

Fish have a right to spawn naturally and move about freely in the oceans and lakes, which are their rightful homes.

“For the animal shall not be measured by man. In a world older and more complete than ours they moved finished and complete, gifted with extensions of the senses we have lost or never attained, living by voices we shall never hear…” — Henry Beston, American writer and naturalist
