MANCHESTER, New Hampshire (WMUR) — New Hampshire has become the second state in the country to achieve "no-kill" status at its animal shelters.

The organization Best Friends Animal Society, which advocates for no-kill shelters, said Delaware was the first state to reach that goal.

According to the organization, New Hampshire's pet save rate is more than 92%. Any animals that were put down in the state's shelters were suffering from medical problems or had serious behavioral issues.
