About Cocheco Valley Humane Society

Cocheco Valley Humane Society offers dog and cat adoptions to Pets for Patriots members in Strafford County and Southern Maine, and will help them find their new best friend. In operation since 1984, the shelter is housed in a 100 year-old piggery and each year shelters more than 2,300 animals who are surrendered, lost, abused, neglected or unwanted.

In addition to pet adoptions, Cocheco Valley Humane Society promotes humane pet population control through spay/neuter advocacy, assists with cruelty investigations and rescue, and acts as a comprehensive animal welfare resource for the communities it serves.

Cocheco Valley Humane Society welcomes monetary donations, as well as in-kind contributions of dry and wet cat/kitten food, six-foot dog leashes, various kennel and cleaning supplies as well as various office supplies; see their complete wish list for details. For a more hands on experience, become one of their valued volunteers or pet fosters.
