About Us

PAWS continues to be here for our community’s pets and pet owners. We will continue offering essential services. Not open to the public at this time, but we are still doing adoptions. Phone interviews, virtual meet and greets for available cats and dogs. Continuing to accept stray and lost animals, owner surrenders if necessary, and continue to offer services to our partner organizations, New Hope For Women and Meals on Wheels. If you or someone you know is in need of assistance with a pet or food/supplies please reach out, we will connect you to available resources. Stay well and hug your dog/cat!, 236-8702 or

Our Mission

To provide care for homeless dogs and cats until they can be placed in permanent, responsible homes while promoting humane values in our community through outreach and educational programs.

A humane world for every animal.

Core Values:

We currently have contracts with the towns of Camden, Appleton, Belmont, Rockport, Lincolnville, Belfast, Hope, Northport, Searsmont, Liberty, Islesboro and Swanville.

We have a full staff ready to help you in finding the perfect pet for you and your family. We invite you to visit or, better yet, volunteer. You just may find that walking a dog, petting cats or cleaning a room will give you a sense of satisfaction and peace.

The animals would love to see you and so would we.
