About Animal Welfare Society
The Animal Welfare Society, located in West Kennebunk, Maine, is a private, non-profit humane society formed in the early 1960's. The founders included the late Mrs. Elmina B. Sewall and the late Mr. Donald Shepard who served as the Society's first President of the Board of Directors. In 1967, the Society became incorporated and has now expanded to a shelter of more than 13,000 square feet. Our service area for adoptions and other services extends throughout Southern Maine. We provide municipal shelter services to 21 communities representing a population of nearly 150,000.
Our mission statement reads: "The Animal Welfare Society, a non-profit organization, exists to provide humane shelter and care to companion animals temporarily in need of housing, to assist in disaster response, and to further the cause of responsible animal adoption and ownership through education and public awareness. The society actively promotes kindness, the elimination of cruelty to and neglect of all animals, and the lifelong commitment of people to their pets."
We accomplish these goals through the generosity of concerned citizens who contribute to our non-profit society through donations, pledges, ...membership and bequests. These funds go directly to the care of the animals and the many other programs we offer to the people and animals of our communities.
