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.

Hello, my name is Leonides! I found my way to KVHS to find a loving, caring family to make me their forever friend. I’m very sweet and enjoy spending my time going for leisurely walks or snuggling up on a comfy blanket for a good nap. I’m a little bashful about my lack of hair at the moment due to the journey I had before coming to the shelter, but the staff and volunteers tell me how handsome I am regardless! If you think your home might be just what I need, then please be sure to stop by and meet me. You won’t be sorry that you did!
