This young lady stopped by to drop off money she raised from growing and selling blueberries! Rose is from Sacramento, CA but spends her summers here in Maine. She was so full of energy and excited to visit with the animals. Thanks Rose!

Brianna & Emilie

We had an amazing donation from Brianna and Emilie! The two young ladies worked together on a school project with the goal of contributing to AWS. They set up tables with flyers and information all about AWS at Cummings Market and Ace Hardware for two weekends! The ladies collected over $830 along with toys, food and water bowls, blankets, leashes and collars! They were so wonderful to meet and you could just tell how thrilled they were to have been so successful in their effort! They even scooted out of softball practice early to bring everything by. We are grateful for their donations and hard work!

Key Bank

As part of their 27th Annual Neighbors Make the Difference Day, several Key Bank employees stopped by AWS on May 24th to volunteer their time and energy to our animals. They helped throughout the shelter, even taking time to bath Jameson the puppy. They certainly found the key to his heart. Our thanks to all the employees who spent time with us, and we hope to see them all again soon!

Daisy Troop 99 came by for a visit and to deliver donations they were able to buy with the money they raised selling cookies! The young change makers were able to bring us kongs, treats, cat nip, peanut butter, hand towels, and food for rabbits, dogs, and cats! Thanks kids!

Liberty Mutual

A big thank you to our friends at Liberty Mutual for lending a hand. Their agents and staff members spent several days with us last week gardening, assisting with shelter cleaning and organization, and playing with our adoptable pets. We are so grateful for their generous community spirit!
