Who We Are

The Coastal Humane Society is a private nonprofit charitable corporation founded in 1950 and incorporated in 1965. The Society exists to help prevent cruelty to animals and to provide shelter care and protection for the area’s stray, abandoned and abused animals.

We contract with 14 area towns to provide 24-hour service to their animal control officers whose unfortunate duty it is to bring in our region’s lost, mistreated, or feral cats and dogs.

We offer humane education and animal welfare programs as well as animal care and training classes.

We provide quality food, grooming, medical attention, and love for those animals left in our care. We euthanize only for severe behavioral or medical problems and only after all other avenues have been exhausted. We facilitate the return of lost pets to their owners, provide foster care for pregnant, injured or ill animals, and facilitate responsible adoptions.

We thank you for considering an adoption through the Coastal Humane Society and will do everything we can to ensure the perfect match between you and your new family member!

All our animals are spayed or neutered, appropriately tested for diseases, up to date on all vaccinations and come with plenty of input from caring and knowledgeable staff technicians. Call 207-725-5051, visit our website at, or e-mail us at

We offer for sale high quality dog and cat foods and litter, a complete selection of safety collars, leashes, harnesses and Gentle Leader® head collars, and a great assortment of toys for your new feline or canine friend. Proceeds from these sales help support our mission.
