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.

Hi, my name is Max! I’m a handsome older gent who’s looking for my retirement home and would love for it to be with you. I have a laid back, very mellow personality and absolutely love quiet attention! I’m not a fan of other felines but will surely make up for that in the extra love I give to my humans. If I sound like I might be a good match for your less active home, please come by KVHS to meet me!
