Our thanks go out to young Elise, another hero for the AWS. She recently donated a basket full of treats, food, toys, and more to help all of the animals in our care. While on her hero tour, she got to spend some time with one of the many puppies we put up for adoption. Thanks for your generosity Elise!

We’re always grateful to not only hear about successful adoptions from our shelter, but to be the recipient of kindness because of them. Last fall, little kitten Silkie was adopted by Ana and her family. Not only is Silkie doing great in his new home, but just recently Ana returned to us with a donation of cardboard tubes and cereal boxes, items crucial for our enrichment programs. Thank you for your donation Ana, and we wish you and Silkie many happy years together.

Tiger Cubs Pack 308

Our thanks to Den Leader Kimberly and Tiger Cubs Pack 308 from Biddeford, Maine. These industrious lads recently brought us a sizable donation of litter, toys, and treats for all of our cats and dogs. We’re always happy to see young scouts doing good deeds for their community. Keep up the good work boys!

Unlike some kids, little Chloe didn’t take the money she got for Christmas and spend it all on toys and candy and other frivolities. No, Chloe took her money and used it to buy treats, toys, and food for animals in need. Along with a bag of cardboard tubes, she recently donated all of this to the AWS. During her Hero Tour, she got to spend some time with Poncho, one of our resident dogs. Thank you very much for your generosity Chloe.

Emma wanted to do something to help all the animals we care for on a daily basis. She took it upon herself to get together a sizable donation of treats, toys, and food for cats and dogs. Proving she loves more than just the four-footed variety, she had a ball visiting one of our resident birds during her Hero Tour. Thank you very much Emma for your generosity and devotion to our cause. We look forward to see you again.

Mildred L. Day School

The students, teachers and their families at the Mildred L. Day Elementary School in Arundel are very generous to those less fortunate.  Every year they have a donation drive for the local food pantry and the Animal Welfare Society.  Every year we are amazed at the size of the contribution.  If these kids are any indication of the generation of children we are raising, we are looking at a humane future.
