All of the pets currently at the shelter are Special and In Need of Good Homes. At the moment there are over 100 pets waiting for that Right Person to bring them into their Forever Homes. Perhaps You are that person!
The Society offers an assistance program for Spay/Neuter. Please contact the Shelter for more information and forms.
While the new shelter building provides a more up-to-date, safe, secure and healthier environment for the stray and abandoned animals brought to us, these precious dogs & cats NEED their OWN homes, with loving, caring guardians. Please open your heart and home to a special pet.
Who We Are
The Houlton Humane Society is a non-profit corporation providing care and adoption opportunities for stray and abandoned animals in the southern Aroostook area of Maine.
Adopting a friend
The most precious gift you could give yourself is a new best friend.
The most precious gift you could give that friend is loving home.
Please remember: We do what is best for the animals and require a pre-adoption application for approval. Forms are available at the shelter or online at our website listed below. A pet is a serious commitment: physically, mentally, financially. In return, your rewards are: priceless.
