SUPPORT FOR PET OWNERS

Helping our community of pet owners is a top priority for us. 

A Safe Place for ME

Affordable Veterinary Care

Because keeping pets and families together is our top priority we offer the following supportive services to our community of pet owners:

 

Short-term boarding and long-term foster for clients of a partner organization:

  • Knox County Homeless Coalition

  • New Hope Midcoast (formerly, New Hope for Women)

  • Penbay & Waldo County Hospital

  • Penquis Social Services

  • Meals on Wheels

If you need assistance, please contact us and we can help you navigate the process.

Resource gathering and assistance to help pet owners navigate through available community resources

  • Linking with existing resources in the Midcoast area (food pantries, dog friendly insurance companies, financial support for emergency medical care etc.) - Contact PAWS Community Service Director

 

Navigating veterinary health care outside of what the PAWS Cares Community Veterinary Clinic is able to provide - Contact PAWS Community Service Director

Alternatives to owner surrendering to help you retain ownership of your pet, if possible - Contact PAWS Community Service Director

 

Training and behavior modification assistance (coming soon)

Affordable veterinary care for low-income pet owners is a reality through the PAWS Cares Community Veterinary Clinic.

 

We believe that everyone deserves to have access to affordable care for their family pet regardless of financial status.

Services include: spay/neuter, routine care, non-emergency care, dental procedures, and other small, non-urgent surgical procedures.

PAWS’ primary goal is to ensure that pets can remain with their owners. However, we do understand that there are extraordinary circumstances in which a pet owner may decide that it is in their family’s best interest for the animal to be re-homed or surrendered to the shelter.

 

In these situations, we can help you navigate this process. Contact the Shelter Director
