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.

Marley is a chocolate and white terrier mix with a gorgeous tiger-striped brindle coat, and more than that, she is a bonafide cutie-patootie! She’s almost 2 years old now. When she first meets men, she can seem shy, but she’s just playing coy really because if he’s a nice guy, she’ll warm right up to him. What a lady! Her favorite things are bestowing kisses on humans, going for walks in the woods, and playing with toys and antlers. She’s a good girl on a leash and is perfectly housebroken.

Her only caveats? She may like to think she’s a dainty girl and prefers a quiet household, but she has a tendency to pester and chase cats. She also has a history of nipping at small children, so it would be best if her future home had children 10 years and up who understand the difference between a nip and a bite and can read dog signals. Otherwise, this sweet girl is a staff favorite and so ready for her forever home!
