Harvest Hills Animal Shelter is a non-profit organization which contracts with 19 towns in Western Maine to accept neglected, stray and abandoned cats and dogs. These animals are brought in by the towns’ animal control officers. When space is available, Harvest Hills also accepts owner surrendered animals from all surrounding communities in Maine and New Hampshire and will assist other shelters by providing a safe place for adoptable animals that would otherwise be euthanized, or did not fit another shelters admission policies.
Since opening its doors in 1992, Harvest Hills has found loving homes for approximately 17,000 dogs and cats. As they have grown in recent years, they strive to serve more animals in need, reduce stress and suffering for every animal passing through there doors and provide individual attention, medical and custodial care to there charges. They also consider it an important part of there mission to educate the community, adults, and children about the responsibilities of pet ownership and the benefits of adopting a Harvest Hills animal.
