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 Larry, and I’m on the hunt for a loving, forever home to spend the rest of my years in. I’m as charming as I am handsome, and I love moseying around to check out my surroundings or cuddling up in a warm lap. I very much enjoy attention, but am great at wandering off for a nap when you’re busy or not home! If I sound like I might be the kitty you’ve been looking for, please take a moment to come by and meet me; you won’t be sorry that you did!
