The Animal Welfare Society resues animals from over 20 counties in southern Maine and Georgia! The Sadie Fund provides financial resources to cover the medical expenses. Last summer when I was spending time volunteering walking dogs at the shelter, I met a dog that had was in very poor health. She was abandoned with her kitty sibling in a foreclosed home by the previous owners. They survived 2 weeks without food and care. AWS provided the medical carer to bring both of these animals back to good health and happiness. It was amazing to see the transformation of the dog. I hope you will consider making a donation to this wonderful shelter. If you are in Maine and have never been to the shelter, I encourage you to visit. The animals love the human contact. There are great programs for kids. If you are looking for a new pet, this is the place to go!
