The mission of The Greater Derry Humane Society is to promote the humane care and treatment of all animals. Our goal is to reduce the suffering of animals through education, rescue, and support, and to work collaboratively with other organizations.
GDHS has no paid staff, and is run solely by volunteers. Our main budget item is our Veterinary Fund that is constantly being depleted to cover medical costs for the animals in our care. We do not receive any town, city or government funds. Therefore, we depend on fundraising and donations.
