Animal Welfare Society

The Animal Welfare Society (AWS) is a private, humane society formed in the early 1960’s by a group of caring individuals. In 1967, the Society became incorporated and has now expanded to a shelter of over 13,000 square feet. Our service area for adoptions and other services extends throughout Southern Maine. We provide municipal shelter services to 17 communities representing a population of nearly 100,000 persons. The AWS exists to provide humane shelter and care to animals temporarily in need of housing, and to further the cause of responsible animal adoption and ownership through education and public awareness. The society actively promotes kindness, the elimination of cruelty and neglect to all animals, and the lifelong commitment of people to their pets.
