We have the most heartwarming Happy Homes story to share! Lana, who was adopted back in January of 2023, has been living with her perfect family and truly being a loyal and loving companion. It just goes to show you that you never know how an animal may change your life. Here's what her mom has to say about her now! 

"Lana is an amazing dog and has been the light of me and my daughter’s life. She helped us through some tough times. She has a natural gift as she could always sense when my daughter was about to have her Vertigo moments. And she also was a protective girl around her after my daughter and I were in a car accident when we got hit by a drunk driver. This dog was a true friend and hero and I couldn’t imagine life without her!"
Yesterday was the last day of school for 7th graders at the Middle School of the Kennebunks, and per their annual tradition they visited AWS! Art students at the school make dog and cat toys for us every year and then celebrate by hand delivering the donations right to our door. They then take a tour of our facility and visit with the pets they helped. We love community traditions like this! Happy summer!
How many kittens can you spot in this photo?! All these babies have already been adopted, but they still played an amazing game of hide-and-go-seek! 👀

Who wants to adopt Elizardbeth? ✋ This adorable reptile is actually very active, friendly, and loves to explore. She is a real ham and will leave you laughing for sure!
