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.

Pet of the Week

Age: 2 Years Old
Breed: Domestic Short Hair
Gender: Neutered Male
Location: Pet Life in Augusta
Hello, my name is Harlequin! I’m a very handsome black and white kitty who is looking for my forever home. Not only am I charming, but I am laid back, friendly and loving! I enjoy the company of humans, and spend my days lounging around, exploring, or in the lap of my loved ones. Dogs are not my favorite, but I’m an expert at communicating that to them when they pester me or come too close! I have tested positive for FIV, which is a lifelong and incurable, but very manageable. My new family will need to have a good relationship with our vet and can read more about what FIV is here: https://www.aspca.org/pet-care/cat-care/feline-immunodeficiency-virus-fiv. If you think you may be interested in meeting me, please call KVHS at 626-3491 or stop by Pet Life in Augusta, where I will be patiently waiting to meet you!
