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.

KVHS will be hosting the 21st Annual Mutt Strut and Paws in the Park celebration on May 31st. This fund raiser will take place at Mill Park in Augusta. Registration is at 9:00am and the walk starts at 10:00am.

Join us after the walk for a family friendly day! There will be prizes, a K9 police demonstration, an agility demonstration, various booths with animal related products and services, micro-chipping, games, hot dogs, popcorn, a bake sale, face painting much more!
