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!

Sydney and Alyse

Beth Ellen and her two daughters, Sydney and Alyse, had a lemonade stand recently and raised a whopping $91.53 which they donated to the Animal Welfare Society. That must be some delicious lemonade! Thank you so much for turning life’s lemons into lemonade for our shelter animals.

Liam, Emily, and Lucy visited the Animal Welfare Society recently to drop off donations purchased using birthday money that Lucy, age three, received for her birthday! Their entire family had a Hero Tour with Humane Educator Megan Cross and got a chance to meet Ollie, a friendly guinea pig that has since been adopted. Thank you Lucy and her entire family for being such a giving and generous part of our community.

Awesome kid Connor had a birthday party and said, “Nay” to gifts for himself and “YAY” to gifts for the animals, donating rabbit, dog, and cat food, treats, and toys to the animals recently and spending some time with Mama at the AWS in her living space. Connor is a natural with the animals, hitting it off with several species, but forming a special bond with Candy, Mama, and some very sweet rats. Connor, thank you for your altruism, awesome attitude, and all around great energy that makes animals want to be around you and humans want to be like you. Hope your school year is just like you, the best!
