Greater Derry Humane Society, Inc.

We are an all foster/all volunteer organization. If we have an open foster home that can handle the particular animal-we take it in. We vet our animals fully, including specialist consultations, etc. if needed. Our community needs a rescue that can take in animals and put them in loving foster homes.

Meet Riley

Dear Santa Paws, It's me, Riley! My foster parents asked me to write a letter to you so you know what I want for Christmas. They said I could ask you for as many things as I want, but the truth is, all I want is a home and a family of my very own! This year hasn't been that great for me. I was all alone living outside, then I ended up in a shelter, and now I'm in a foster home. All the humans I've met along the way have been very nice! Now I get meals twice a day, lots of treats and toys, and I have a warm place to sleep with lots of blankets. However, I know my family is out there somewhere, and I would love if you could help me find them.  The family I'm looking for can have cats, other playful dogs that won't be annoyed by my puppy energy, and older kids that are okay with my jumping. They'll have to like taking me for walks and snuggling on the couch. I also really need a fenced yard to run in. I'm very nosey, so they must have an interesting neighborhood that I can sit in the front window and watch. I'm pretty much potty trained, but I'd love to learn basic obedience!  I really hope you can find the perfect home for me, Santa! I'll be waiting by the fireplace on Christmas eve so I can hop in your sleigh and you can drop me off at my new home! Puppy Kisses,  Riley
