The SPCA shelter is located on Route 3 in Trenton, south of the city of Ellsworth and north of Mount Desert Island. Our hours of operation are Wednesday through Sunday from 11-5. We are closed on Monday and Tuesday. (Morning hours are dedicated to the cleaning and care of the animals and facility.) You can always call and make an appointment to meet with a particular animal outside of regular hours or days.
