Since 1927 the Kennebec Valley Humane Society has provided shelter, food, and medical services to local animals in need. Our mission is to care for, protect and place animals for adoption in lifelong homes; to prevent cruelty to animals by educating our communities in the proper and humane care of all animals. Our vision is to end pet overpopulation and to advance the humane treatment of all animals.
If you are interested in adopting a pet and rent your home, we ask for landlord permission before the adoption goes through. If you have a dog already in residence you must bring him/her in for a meet and greet with the prospective adoptee dog to ensure the best match possible for everyone. All adoptions are same day adoptions and we do not reserve or hold animals. Remember that even if you miss the opportunity to adopt that day we have many more animals that are waiting for a home and may be your next best friend! All members of the household must agree to the adoption and meet the pet before the adoption. Our adoption fees are non-refundable, but if a pet adoption does not work out you may return the animal to KVHS to find a new home. Due to afternoon feedings and rounds, adoptions will stop at 3:45 although you are welcome to look at our animals until we close. Most importantly, enjoy your time with us and make sure the animal you choose is going to be the best fit for your home and lifestyle. KVHS strives to place healthy and happy animals in permanent loving homes. All animals available for adoption have been thoroughly health evaluated and examined to the best of our ability.
