York Middle School Kindness Project

Put your paws together to applaud Olivia, Bryleigh, and Kristen from York Middle School. They chose AWS for their Kindness Project. They got approval from their principal to go on the announcements at school to let people know about their donation drive and AWS. The York Middle School Community was very generous. Thank you all so much!

Meet Awesome Isaak. He recently had a birthday and asked his friends to bring gifts for the animals in lieu of gifts for himself. The treats he brought to AWS were especially popular with our cats and dogs. Isaak’s love for animals is readily apparent and we think maybe he’ll have a career in animal welfare someday (if the NHL doesn’t work out, of course!) Thanks, Isaak, for your generosity and kindness to our animals! Smokey, Derusha, Snowbell and all our pets had a great time meeting you! Thank you for visiting the wonderful world of AWS!

Mildred L. Day School

We are very grateful to the generous students and faculty of the Mildred L. Day School.  Every year they have a donation drive for the local food pantry and the Animal Welfare Society.  And every year we are amazed at the size of the contribution.  This year they amassed over 360 bags and cans of cat and dog food. Thanks for your continued support!

Maine Foodie Tours

A big thank you to Pam Laskey and Maine Foodie Tours for stopping by with the proceeds from their successful summer of Doggie and Me tours in Kennebunkport. We are so grateful for your ongoing support of AWS and the animals in our care. Meatball didn’t take long to warm up for these foodies. While he wouldn’t look at the camera, with a name like Meatball, he was a natural choice for the photo opp. Thanks again! For more info on Maine Foodie Tours, please visit their website.

A big thank you to the employees and friends of the ShuttleBus-Zoom. They recently collected donations to remember the late wife of one of their former bus drivers. Wealthie Perry was a huge animal lover, having adopted several shelter pets in her lifetime and giving them wonderful, loving homes. We were honored to accept these gifts in her memory. Our puppies went all out amusing Wealthie’s family and ZoomBus employees when they stopped by the shelter just before Christmas. We are so grateful for their thoughtfulness at this time of sorrow. Wealthie will be missed!
