The Greater Androscoggin Humane Society in Lewiston, Maine recently picked up 45 adult cats from the Monmouth County SPCA in New Jersey, to relieve overcrowding in the storm ravaged region. The cats, which not made homeless by the storm, are being shared between GAHS and other cooperating Maine shelters, and are available with fee-waived adoptions. The transport allowed Monmouth County SPCA help strays and owner surrenders who have been displaced by the storm.
The other shelters are: Animal Refuge League of Greater Portland, Westbrook; Animal Welfare Society, West Kennebunk; Bangor Humane Society, Bangor; Coastal Humane Society, Brunswick; Franklin County Animal Shelter, Farmington; Greater Androscoggin Humane Society, Lewiston; Humane Society Waterville area, Waterville; Maine State Society for the Protection of Animals, Windham.
The Greater Androscoggin Humane Society filled a van with supplies to help animals affected by Hurricane Sandy and drove to New Jersey on Wednesday, December 5. The van was back home in Maine Thursday night with the rescued pets. The mission also brought back some small dogs transported from Alabama.
