Founded in 1911, the SPCA of Hancock County, Maine, is a life-saving organization committed to providing shelter and care for abandoned, stray and surrendered animals. Since opening the doors of our expanded facility in Trenton in October 2010, our organization has found homes for thousands of dogs and cats.
We are also focused on community outreach and education on proper and humane animal care.

Lucky Too

Lucky Too is a spunky and loving gray tabby of unknown age; he was picked up as a stray but was already neutered, so at first his finder thought he was a girl. But with how prominent his ribcage was when he was found, it’s clear he had been missing from home for a long time. Now he’s being treated for hyperthyroidism, meaning he’ll require a special diet or medication for the rest of his life.

None of that gets Lucky Too down, though. He loves poking his caretakers when they pass by his kennel, and he’s always up for gentle snuggles, even hugs. While he has a sassy streak and will show people what-for if they make sudden movements that spook him, he would be all right with older kids as long as they respect him. He may get along with cats or dogs that also give him space but would likely not care for ones that get up in his face too quickly. Lucky Too needs a little more time on his med before he can leave the shelter, but he would love to have a home lined up for him to go to!
