Sat, May 4, 2024 – Monthly Puppy Store Protest

Ever since The Puppy Palace in Manchester, NH opened its doors in May 2023, NHARL has been peacefully protesting the store to warn the public and would-be shoppers about puppy mills and promote “Adopt Don’t Shop.” 

With the colder weather, our once weekly protests are now monthlythe first Saturday of the month from 12:00 to 1:00 pm. Signs will be provided.

The larger the crowd, the more attention we can bring to the issue, so join us for whatever portion you can and bring your friends.

Park in the TJ Maxx Plaza on South Willow in Manchester (14 March Ave.) and meet us on the public sidewalk along on South Willow.

After the protest, join us for refreshments at Panera.

Ever since The Puppy Palace in Manchester opened its doors, we have been out in force protesting this business and making sure that Gus — a puppy who died at the store — is not forgotten. What happened to Gus?

May 3-4, 2024 – Farm & Forest Expo

NH Animal Rights League will have a tent at the Farm and Forest Expo, which has moved its location from the Doubletree Hotel in Manchester to the Deerfield Fairgrounds. The new location will mean a lot more farmed animals, since getting to the event no longer requires riding in a hotel elevator. 

The event runs Friday, May 3 from 9 AM to 7 PM and Saturday, May 4 from 9 AM to 4 PM.

This will be a big event with lots of opportunities for public outreach, so please consider volunteering for a shift in the tent. Training provided. Contact us at
