Little Ham needs our help!

Ham is a sweet little puppy from Georgia who is very sick and needs our help. Ham and his siblings made a long journey from Georgia to find their forever homes here in Maine. Shortly after his arrival we discovered that  this sweet baby has a condition known as Pulmonic Stenosis. This means one of the valves in Ham’s heart is so tight, it doesn’t work properly and he will not survive without surgery.

The surgery that can save his life and it will cost over $5,000 but will allow Ham to have the happy, healthy, Maine life he deserves. We are asking for donations to cover the costs of Ham’s surgery and recovery. Please consider making a donation today.


Adoptions by Appointment Only - Until Further Notice

As the impact of COVID-19 in Maine continues to change, we feel that it’s important to limit public gatherings in our space at KVHS. For this reason, effective immediately and until further notice we will be doing adoptions by appointment only. To view animals ready for adoption click here.

To make an appointment, please email customerservice@pethavenlane.org or call 626-3491.

We love our animals and this community. We are making every effort to provide the highest care to our animals while also practicing social distancing and cleaning and disinfecting our facility multiple times daily. Our team is at the shelter every day and remain dedicated to our
mission. We are grateful for your support.
