HSWA Pet Of The Week: Bear The Dog
Bear is a another cutie! He is about two and is a German Shepard mix. He ended up in the shelter after being brought to them from a hording situation. So, he needs some extra attention in adjusting to family life. So Bear is going to need is a home willing to invest the time into training, backing that up with consistency and lots of love. His adoption fee is $150 includes spay/neutering and all shots.
There are a number of animal organizations in Maine who are making it their mission to help animals find there forever homes. You can find a county by county list or Petfinder.com is how I found my ShadowDog. Here is the list of some local shelters for central Maine that I know of, there is Humane Society Waterville Area and the Kennebec Valley Humane Society. We also have P.A.L.S. No Kill Cat Shelter, the Coastal Humane Society, the Greater Androscoggin Humane Society. There are also the hardworking and wonderful people at Maine Greyhound Placement Service. There is also the Lincoln County Animal Shelter and Humane Society, the Pope Memorial Humane Society of Knox County and Humane Society of Somerset County. No matter where they come from, in my opinion, animals that come to our lives from shelters and rescue organizations are the best!
