According to an article at, Great Bay Kennel is currently housing 10 dogs. The design of the kennel is such that a large number of dogs can be safely quarantined until they are ready to be transferred to the NHSPCA for adoption.

“We were happy to say ‘yes’ when the NHSPCA reached out,” said Dr. Jim McKiernan, veterinarian and owner of GBK, along with his wife Carla McKiernan. “We immediately went to work planning the logistics of how we could help. It was an easy decision and is a privilege to assist the NHSPCA in this effort.” GBK has been providing boarding, grooming and dog daycare services in the Seacoast since 1993. Fortunately, for the dogs received from the Miami area, GBK had space and was willing to take on the care of the animals until space could be made for them at the NHSPCA.

For more information about when the animals from Hurricane Irma will be available for adoption, contact the New Hampshire SPCA or view their adoptable animals page here.
