Adopt a New Best Friend This Week in Either Bangor or Ellsworth!

The Bangor Humane Society is heading into the home stretch as it competes in the Rachel Ray One Hundred Thousand Dollar Challenge.  If they can boost the number of adoptions to a certain level by Wednesday October 31st, they stand to win one hundred thousand dollars.

To help boost the number of adoptions, the Bangor Humane Society will hold a “Mega Adoption” event this Friday through Sunday.  Many of the fees have been reduced or waived altogether to help find new homes for pets.  So it’s a great time to adopt a new best friend.

According to the Society’s website, they rely on donations from the public to cover sixty percent of their operating expenses.  They receive no funding from federal, local or state sources.  So the cash would help immensely.

Over the years I’ve adopted three cats from the Bangor Humane Society, they’ve lived or are still living long happy lives and creating a lot of memories.

The Bangor shelter is also in the running to win a twenty five thousand dollar “Community Engagement” award.  All you have to do is vote, they’re currently in 4th place.  Pretty simple, vote HERE!

The Bangor Humane Society is located just off the Hogan Road past the Quirk Autopark, then take a left onto Mount Hope Avenue. They are just 200 yards on the right.  E-mail:

Meanwhile, the SPCA of Hancock County will present it’s first ever “Howl-O-Ween” party and adoption event on Saturday from noon to 2 at the shelter facilities. They’re located at 141 Bar Harbor Road in Trenton just between the Great Maine Lumberjack Show and the Acadia Christian School. The event is free and open to the public. All are encouraged to dress up for Halloween, because there will be a kids’ costume contest, with prizes.  Pets can show up in costume, you’ll have to drive them there though.

This Saturday and Sunday they have greatly reduced their adoption rates on all of their dogs and cats.  All “vintage” cats (5 and older) – the adoption fee is waived. Cats 6 months to 5 years – $25. Kittens – $45. “Vintage dogs – 7 and older, adoption fee is waived. Dogs 6 and under – $100.
