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.

Do you have a deep love for animals? Are you a team player, willing to work with others to achieve a common goal? Do you give attention to detail, especially when it comes to something in need of nurturing, love, and care? Then you may be an ideal candidate to be an animal care associate!
We know it’s been a long time since we’ve been open to the public – between COVID protocols and facility limitations, our hours are by appointment only to reduce stress to the animals and to keep everyone healthy and safe. But now you can join us every other week for a livestream on Facebook to meet new shelter residents and hear the latest news and developments.
A HEARTY thank you to dear Isaiah Riley! (who donated the $97 dollars from his personal piggy bank!) It is heartwarming to see such an amazing youth taking such an interest in the future of the Hancock Animals! We want to thank you, Isaiah, for all the extra full bellies, warm snuggles, and delicious treats that your donation makes possible! And we can’t wait to send you updates about all the fun projects happening at the SPCA!
So Many Homes ... Found!
Featuring 2021 Adoptions
Cody is a sweet older boy (16 years old!) in need of a quiet and calm home.
We don’t usually see much of him during the day. He prefers to hide in a dark, cozy spot in his cage. We know he comes out at night to explore and have a snack, though!
Cody is just in shock. He was in his last home for most (if not all) of his life, and he suddenly found himself here at the shelter. We’ve given him some time to come out of his shell, but at this point, he may only truly relax once he’s in a real home environment. He doesn’t mind being held, but he gets a bit anxious in a new room with lots of space. Fair enough, Cody! Wide open spaces can be scary. Sometimes you just want to curl up under a blanket on the couch, and Cody prefers to do this every day.
If this gentle older boy is your speed (or lack thereof!), send in an application for Cody. Senior cats like Cody have discounted adoption fees because they’re often overlooked for kittens or younger cats. But Cody needs a cozy home for his golden years, too!
