COASTAL HUMANE SOCIETY OPENS A RESCUE PIPELINE TO 30 LUCKY PUPS DESTINED FOR EUTHANASIA

The Coastal Humane Society in Brunswick Maine anticipates the arrival of 30 rescued dogs, mostly puppies, on Friday January 28.  The Brunswick shelter found itself with extra kennel space and decided to save the lives of pups from the South who were slated for euthanasia.  This is the largest number of rescued dogs the shelter has ever received, and one of the largest delivered to the state.  These dogs will be available for adoption beginning February 3.  For more information see:  http://www.coastalhumanesociety.org/.

The Brunswick shelter is located at 30 Range Road, off Pleasant St.

Two Local Animal Shelters Working Together During the Holiday Season

The Animal Welfare Society (AWS), in Kennebunk, Maine, will be accepting 12 cats from the Coastal Humane Society (CHS) in Brunswick, Maine on Wednesday, December 29th. The cats will be transported via shuttle from Brunswick to their new temporary home in Kennebunk.

Due to AWS' fee-waived cat adoption program and a very successful fall and early winter of cat adoptions, AWS has an excess of available space for cats in need and was able to partner with CHS to assist them in finding homes for 12 of their resident felines. AWS adopted 214 cats in October alone. The upcoming cat transfer will be the first in the history of AWS and will help CHS free up space for additional local cats.

Upon the cats' arrival at AWS, they will be available for adoption shortly thereafter.

AWS waives the adoption fee on all cats 6 months of age and older.
