AWS Services

Many of the services we provide for our shelter animals are also available to the public. By working with the Animal Welfare Society for these services, pet owners can gain access to the area’s leading pet care experts while supporting the important work we do for all of the animals here.


The Animal Welfare Society is an open-admission shelter for the intake of homeless or stray animals in need. Pets in our care are given shelter, nutrition, medical care, training, and plenty of love as they await their new families.

Spaying and Neutering

The Community Veterinary Clinic at the Animal Welfare Society in Kennebunk offers high-quality, low cost spay/neuter surgery for dogs and cats. The Cleo Fund provides financial resources for pet owners throughout the state of Maine to assist with the costs of spay/neuter services.

Canine Training

End of Life Care
