About the SPCA of Hancock County


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.

Our Mission

The Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals of Hancock County (SPCA) is an independent, nonprofit organization dedicated to the promotion of animal welfare, to the protection, sheltering, and placement of companion animals into responsible, loving homes, to humane education in the community, and to local, state and national animal advocacy.

Our Responsibility

  • Protect and provide shelter for lost, abandoned and relinquished animals.
  • Provide adoption opportunities for all animals under our care.
  • Promote the care and well being of all living creatures through education.
  • Provide effective means for the prevention of cruelty to animals and encourage kindness toward animals.
  • Educate the public on pet overpopulation and proper animal care.
  • Campaign for all companion animals to be spayed and neutered.
  • Fund a low cost spay/neuter program with the cooperation of local veterinarians.

The SPCA can accept relinquished animals by appointment only.
