Harvest Hills Animal Shelter is a non-profit organization which contracts with seventeen towns in Western Maine to accepted 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 euthanised, or did not fit another shelters admission policies.
Since opening its doors in 1992, Harvest Hills has found loving homes for approximately 9000 cats and dogs. In the year 2000 Harvest Hills served 1000 animals. As we have grown in recent years. We strive to serve more animals in need, reduce stress and suffering for every animal passing through our doors and provide individual attention, medical and custodial care to our charges. We also consider it an important part of our mission to educate the community, adults and children about the responsibilities of pet ownership and the benefits of adopting a Harvest Hills animal.
Harvest Hills has taken great care to avoid euthanasia whenever possible. Every animal goes through a socialization program and is evaluated so we may match it with its new family. This process helps with the transition of shelter life to a new home for both the pet and its new owners.
