Welcome to the Kennebec Valley Humane Society

At the Kennebec Valley Humane Society, you can adopt dogs, cats and small furry animals.


Since 1927 the Kennebec Valley Humane Society has provided shelter, food, and medical services to local animals in need. Our mission is to care for, protect and place animals for adoption in lifelong homes; to prevent cruelty to animals by educating our communities in the proper and humane care of all animals. Our vision is to end pet overpopulation and to advance the humane treatment of all animals.

Hey there, I’m Diego! I’m a happy-go-lucky guy who’s on the hunt for my forever home. Not only am I super handsome, but I’m loving, friendly and fun! I very much enjoy attention and cuddles, and would make a great, gentle family dog. I can be a little picky about my canine friends, but otherwise seem to do great with other pets! I know a handful of commands already, and would love to learn even more in my new home. I do have an affinity for porcupines, so keeping me nearby would be best to avoid any more run-ins with quills! I’m an all-around great dog and would love for you to stop by KVHS and meet me!
