We are blown away by the amazing generosity of our good friend and long-time supporter Joyce. Joyce saves up all year to buy much needed supplies for our animals — litter, food and other goodies. We always love her holiday visits and are so grateful for her amazing caring heart.  (And we’d be remiss not to mention the delicious powdered donut treats she brought the staff – don’t worry, we didn’t share any of those with the animals!)

Skyler turned 7 and had people bring donations to the AWS instead of gifts! His mom Leslie and he spent some time with Roxanne going on a great hero tour. Being so selfless is heroic! Way to go, Skyler!

Thank You SIS Bank

We were the proud recipients of SIS Bank’s Homeruns for Good program for August. The Red Sox hit a whopping 2 homers during the month, yielding a very generous donation of $1,100 for our animals. We are so grateful to SIS for their continued support of AWS and the work we do in the community helping animals in need. Thank you!

Thank You Spurling Training Systems

We are all immensely grateful to our awesome friends and West Kennebunk neighbors at Spurling Training Systems for selecting AWS as the recipient for their first annual Spurling Charity 5K!  The road race was a huge success, bringing in more than $2000 for our pets. The race was a great event for our community- fun for pooches and their people.  Thank you Doug, Chris, and the whole gang at Spurling for your fantastic support!
