Thank you for choosing Animal Welfare Society as a place to adopt a pet! Whether you are looking at cats for adoption, hoping to find a puppy or searching for a fuzzy, furry or feathered friend to fall in love with, you’ve come to the right place. All of our dogs, cats and small animals available for adoption are listed in real-time and we welcome you to get to learn more about them!

Looking for pets that have gone home in the last few weeks? Visit our recently adopted pets!

All adoptions are by appointment. Learn more on our HOW TO ADOPT page.


Adoptions by Appointment

The Adoption Center remains closed to drop-in visitors. All adoptions are by appointment and can be scheduled by calling (207) 985-3244 daily after 9 am. Please speak to a staff member directly to book an appointment to adopt this pet! Sending an email or leaving a voicemail will not result in an appointment. Please call! Learn more about the adoption process at:
As always, adoptions are first come, first serve, meaning the person who calls first gets their choice of available appointment times and thus his/her choice of animals to meet and adopt. We are not able to extend holds on any animals at this time, so we ask interested adopters to make their adoption decision during their appointment and be prepared to take their new pet with home with you.

Please note: our adoption pages are REAL TIME, so as soon as an animal is adopted, it will “disappear” from the website.
